After a long and arduous delay dating back to 2005, we finally get to see something more than a few images, as Sin City: A Dame To Kill For releases the first trailer.
Everyone rejoice! It seems that the day has come where we can finally preview some proof that the long awaited sequel to the 2004 movie Sin City exists. After almost a decade of stop and go writing, casting and production delays, we finally have a trailer for the long gestating sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt seems to take center stage in this first trailer as we are reintroduced to several of the characters from the first movie, some with recast roles. The movie was written and directed by Robert Rodriguez and original creator Frank Miller, with an additional writing credit to William Monahan (The Departed). The movie will adapt the same split storyline structure that the first film had, with four different stories on tap. Two of the stories, “A Dame To Kill For” and “Just Another Saturday Night,” were adapted from the graphic novel series by Frank Miller while the other two stories, “The Long Bad Night” and “The Fat Loss”, will be original stories made for the screen taking place in the infamous Basin City.
In the main story, “A Dame To Kill For”, Dwight – with Josh Brolin replacing Clive Owen in the role - is the main character with the aforementioned “dame” being newcomer Eva Green as Ava Lord, a former lover of Dwight’s. Mickey Rourke returns as Marv for “Just Another Saturday Night,” a story from the fifth graphic novel of the series, Booze, Broads & Bullets. Jessica Alba reprises her role as Nancy for that story, as well as in “The Fat Loss”, which is set after the events of Hartigan’s (Bruce Willis returning) fate from the previous movie. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays new character Johnny in “The Long Bad Night” who apparently gets in over his head.
Other notable returnees would be Rosario Dawson, Jamie King and Powers Boothe reprising their roles from the previous film. Dennis Haysbert (24) replaces the deceased Michael Clarke Duncan as Manute, Jamie Chung (The Hangover 2) steps in for Devon Aoki as Miho and Jeremy Piven takes on the role of Bob from Michael Madsen. Ray Liotta, Christopher Meloni, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach and Marton Csokas also join the cast for the movie.
After nine years, we’ll finally get to see this released on August 22nd, 2014 and judging from the trailer, the wait should be well worth it.
