Dimension Films has released a new full-length Sin City: A Dame to Kill For for directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel.  The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.  This trailer focuses heavily on the returning members of the cast, specifically Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, and Bruce Willis.  There’s plenty of action and stylized visuals on display, but even after a number of trailers, images, posters, etc. I’m still having troubling drumming up anything but indifference towards the follow-up.  It looks fine, but 2006 was a very long time ago.

Well here’s a new one.  In lieu of clips or traditional images, The Weinstein Company has released a batch of “animated images” (ie. gifs) from directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.  I’m curious to see if the audience for a Sin City sequel is still out there nearly a decade after the first film was released, especially since technology has evolved so drastically since the groundbreaking graphic novel adaptation.

Dimension has released two new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For posters.  The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.  The story features new characters, but the trailer and these posters rely heavily on characters from the first movie.  Even though Brolin and Green are presumably the central figures, there’s a heavy reliance on Marv (Mickey Rourke) and Nancy (Jessica Alba), which reminds me that 2005 was a long time ago.

Dimension Films has released a new trailer for co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.  This trailer doesn’t really get into the plot all that much, as it’s more of a flashy, aesthetic teaser than anything.  Frankly, the visuals for Sin City 2 look quite cheap compared to the first film, even though technology has advanced almost a decade since Rodriguez made Sin City.  The cast is promisingly eclectic, though, but right now that’s the only thing holding my interest here.

Inspired by a true story, the indie drama Small Time tells the story of Al Klein (Christopher Meloni) and his longtime friend, Ash Martini (Dean Norris), who own a used car lot together.  While Martini is a happy bachelor, Klein still pines for his ex-wife (Bridget Moynahan) and struggles to find common ground with their son (Devon Bostick), who has decided to follow in his father’s footsteps.

At the film’s press day, writer/director Joel Surnow talked about how the first draft of Small Time was written in 1976, why he kept going back to the story, how different the finished film is now, the casting process, why he wanted the story to have a little edge to it, that he’s hoping to go into production on his next film this year, and why he thinks it’s fantastic that 24 (for which he was the co-creator/executive producer) is returning to television, while actor Christopher Meloni talked about why this story and character appealed to him, not wanting to fall into any cliches, working with co-star Dean Norris, his experience making Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and why he wanted to sign on for the comedy series Surviving Jack.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

Frank Miller's Sin City A Dame to Kill For Storyboard Images Slice

In addition to some recently released live-action images, we’ve now got a look at some of Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For storyboard images used for the film.  To me, they look like panels from Miller’s source material, which makes sense considering his films are aimed at bringing the pages of his graphic novels to life.  Plenty of style on display here, but we’ll have to wait until later this summer to see if the sequel’s got the substance to match.  *FYI, the images could be considered NSFW depending on how uptight your workplace is.

The first trailer for Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For recently debuted to somewhat mixed reactions.  Seeing as it’s been nearly a decade since the original film, many were perhaps expecting an evolution from the first film’s ground-breaking aesthetics.  While the sequel looks every bit as atmospheric as the first film, those criticisms are certainly well-founded.  We’ve got three new images from the picture to share with you today, and while they probably won’t change your mind about the film one way or the other, they’re certainly stylized in a familiar fashion.

Starring Eva Green, Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on August 22nd.  Hit the jump to check out the new images.

Dimension Films has released the first trailer for co-director Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically-altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.  While I’m not crazy about the music they chose for this first cut, the character transformations are pretty damn cool.  Returning characters have a whole new look, which makes sense since it’s been almost a decade since the original film.  Newcomers to the franchise have been beat up, cut up, or dolled up to the point that they’re hardly recognizable.  A solid start.

A few new images have been released for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically-altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is “hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.”  These images highlight previously-introduced characters Marv (Mickey Rourke) and Nancy (Jessica Alba).  Miller tells EW that while Nancy is still dancing at Kadie’s, she’s been changed by Hartigan’s (Bruce Willis) death.  She’s out for revenge and “is sick of being treated—as she puts it—’a piece of ass’.” If that’s the case, she may want to change professions.  The images also give us a first look at new character Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a “hard-luck gambler”.

The El Rey Network is an English-language, general entertainment network, born out of the mind of prolific feature filmmaker, Robert Rodriguez, who is assembling top talent that is unprecedented for a such a new network.  As his first original series, Rodriguez has adapted his hit movie From Dusk Till Dawn into a TV series that stars Don Johnson, DJ Cotrona, Wilmer Valderrama, Robert Patrick, Adrianne Palicki, Jake Busey, Lane Garrison and Zane Holtz.

During this recent interview to promote both the network and the premiere of the show, Robert Rodriguez talked about the genesis of this new network, the challenges of adapting the cult classic From Dusk Till Dawn movie into a TV series, the types of ideas that he’s getting to explore in the series that he couldn’t explore in the film, how important casting was, that these will be nasty vampires different from what we’ve seen before, how technological advances are allowing him to watch the shooting live, even when he can’t be on set, what it’s been like to revisit the worlds of both From Dusk Till Dawn and Sin City, whether he’d like to turn any of his other properties into TV shows, and what people can expect from the Roberto Orci original series Matador when it premieres.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

El Rey is an English-language, general entertainment network, born out of the mind of prolific feature filmmaker, Robert Rodriguez.  Conceived seven months ago and launched 27 days ago, having a filmmaker at the center of the network allows for an assembly of top talent that is unprecedented for a such a new network.  As his first original series, Rodriguez is adapting his hit movie From Dusk Till Dawn into a TV series, which will premiere on March 11th, and stars Don Johnson, Wilmer Valderrama, Robert Patrick, Adrianne Palicki, DJ Cotrona, Jake Busey, Lane Garrison and Zane Holtz.

During the El Rey portion of the TCA Press Tour, Robert Rodriguez talked about the ideas behind El Rey, why he decided to do From Dusk Till Dawn as the network’s first original TV series, that each season will take place during the time period from dusk until dawn, how the story will be a partial retelling that then veers off into entirely new territory, and transitioning a movie into an episodic series.  He also talked about which of his other films he’d like to see in as a TV series, the possibility of bringing Sin City to television, shooting Sin City 2 in 3D, to completely immerse audiences in the world, and that Nerveracker will be his next film, followed by Fire and Ice.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.
