The Red Band trailer for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For that played before a packed audience at SDCC's Hall H has been released online. It shows off all the amazing visual splendor and all-star cast that made the first such a cult-classic.
The extended trailer that played at SDCC is now here for your personal enjoyment. It definitely contains some serious violence as well as a few spoilers as far as the film’s narrative end and cameo roles, not to mention what happens to a couple of the main cast members. The trailer is set to Icky Blossoms’ song Babes, which nicely illustrates Rodriguez’s very female-centered bad asses. Eva Green, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Lady Gaga, any many others, these ladies aren’t here to take names.
Rodriguez and Miller took to the stage of Hall H during the Sin City: A Dame To Kill For SDCC panel — Miller earning much applause from the audience when his work in the Batman comic book world (Batman: Year One, The Dark Knight Returns, and the fact that so much of that shows in Snyder’s Batman v Super: Dawn Of Justice teaser) was brought up during the panel. Miller talked a bit about his time working in the comics and film industries, before the audience was treated to the above posted footage. You can check out the panel discussion in its entirety below:
In addition to the SDCC panel, as well as the online release of the extended trailer, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For‘s marketing is in full-tilt boogie as of late. The advertising might be going a little too far though if you asked ABC. The network recently rejected an ad for the upcoming Robert Rodriguez film, because of two scenes in which Eva Green appears to be naked.
The marketing for the film is also reaching across the pond as the U.K.’s Channel 4 began serious campaigning over the past weekend, viewers were treated to an exclusive look at the film as it took over an entire two-minute ad break. The ad campaign kicked-off with a series of five second teasers from Saturday, August 2nd until the full-preview was shown Monday night.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has a lot of hype to live up to. Nearly 10 years after the first was released, Rodriguez and Miller have been slow to returning to Basin City. We won’t have to wait much longer now as the new film’s release date is nearly upon us, but can it deliver? It’s been a decade since we first saw Sin City on screens and its visuals aren’t looking quite as unique as they did so many years ago. Nevertheless, the film’s stellar cast and penchant for violent, sexy action should be enough to give Rodriguez his biggest movie in a long time.
