It’s been 9 years in the making with several starts and stops, but finally director Robert Rodriguez (MACHETE KILLS) and writer/director Frank Miller (THE SPIRIT) are bringing their beloved pulp-noir world of guns, guts and girls back to the big screen this summer with SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR! The first official trailer for the film has been released and includes plenty of stylish shots, beautiful women, brutal action and familiar faces (along with a few fresh ones for characters both old and new). Check it out below:
Returning SIN CITY alumni include Jessica Alba (MACHETE KILLS) as exotic dancer Nancy Callahan, Powers Boothe (THE AVENGERS) as the corrupt Senator Roark, Rosario Dawson (TRANCE) as dominatrix/gang leader Gail, Jaime King (RED TAILS) as twin femme fatales Goldie & Wendy, Bruce Willis (RED 2) as hardboiled cop John Hartigan and Mickey Rourke (IMMORTALS) as everyone’s favorite tough guy Marv. Joining them will be Joseph Gordon-Levitt (DON JON) as a new SIN CITY character named Johnny, Eva Green (300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE) as the alluring Ava Lord, Stacy Keach (NEBRASKA) as the mobster Wallenquist and Ray Liotta (THE ICEMAN) as the strange businessman Joey. Josh Brolin (OLDBOY) plays protagonist Dwight McCarthy prior to his transformation into the Clive Owen model. And Dennis Haysbert (WRECK-IT RALPH) assumes the role of Manute in place of the late Michael Clarke Duncan. Oh, and Lady Gaga plays a waitress, apparently…um…yay?
The film will be comprised of four narratives: adaptations of Miller’s “A Dame to Kill For” and “Just Another Saturday Night” as well as two new original stories (“The Long Bad Night” and “The Fat Loss”).
SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR blasts into theaters August 22nd!
