Because of the upcoming onslaught of superhero movies promising to dominate cinemas for the next few months, it’s easy to forget about one comic book film in particular: Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Robert Rodriguez’s sequel to the 2005, pulpy noir-injected Sin City looks like it will have all of the elements for a bloody good time at the movies. However, one has to wonder how excited audiences are to see it, considering the first film came out nearly a decade ago.
For those who are ready to revisit the bloody, grim, and highly stylized titular city of corruption and hard-boiled action, you’re in luck. A Dame To Kill For not only looks and sounds like the original, but Rodriguez has gathered quite the cast this time around. Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ray Liotta, Stacy Keach, Lady Gaga and Eva Green join original cast members Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, and Powers Booth.
Today, a few new images have arrived, which show off a bruised and battered Joseph Gordon-Levitt and tough-guy Josh Brolin. On top of that, we have two new character posters as well, highlighting the return of Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba via some cool illustrated one-sheets that look like they’ve fallen right out of Frank Miller’s comic book.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theaters on August 22nd.
