First trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For released online


Just days after the opening of 300: Rise of An Empire, the trailer has dropped for another long-awaited sequel to a stylised graphic novel adaptation from the mid 2000’s. Released in 2005, Robert Rodriguez’s film adaptation of Frank Miller’s Sin City was an experiment in how visually faithful a film can be to its source text. The film was a success critically and commercially, which is why we are getting a sequel, albeit 9 years after the original. Much of the original cast are returning for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, including Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba. High profile additions include Eva Green and Joseph Gordon Levitt.

Sin City was definitely a feast for the eyes and A Dame to Kill For looks like it will continue with that aesthetic. The film will be released in 3D, and the highly-stylised visuals will likely lead to a rare case of a film benefiting from the extra dimension.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For does not have an Australian release date yet, but will be released in US cinemas on August 22.
