Among the big high-profile comic book sequels of the year (“Captain America,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” et al.), there’s one that’s been a little more under the radar: “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For,” Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s sequel to their 2005 green-screen noir. But the marketing campaign is starting to gear up in a big way, with the film’s release only a couple of months away, and hot on the heels of that ‘controversial’ poster (emphasis on the quotation marks, Mr. Weinstein), a new trailer has just landed for the movie.
It displays the same black-and-white stunning visuals, along with another all-star cast, where returning actors like Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Powers Boothe and Rosario Dawson are joined by new faces like Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Juno Temple, Ray Liotta, Lady Gaga, Jeremy Piven, Dennis Haysbert and, as the lady of the title, Eva Green. It also looks like there’s a more unified plot this time around, with the various protagonists teaming up to take down Boothe’s Senator Roarke.
Fans of the original will undoubtedly be delighted by what’s on display, but those of us who were cooler on it, and on the work of Rodriguez and Miller in general, might need a little more to be convinced. Still, it’ll look unlike anything else this summer when it lands on August 22nd. Watch the new trailer below.
