In the midst of all of the anticipation and never-ending character list for the upcoming Sin City sequel, there appears to be a marketing change in the works. A slight, but noticeable tweak has been made to the title of Robert Rodriguez’s follow-up. As depicted in a piece of promotional art at the American Film Market, the film now bears the title Sin City: A Dame To Die For, rather than Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Here’s a photo of the film’s new poster, captured by Bloody Disgusting:
Whether this change is simply a change in preference is yet to be seen, as it is also possible that the change was made to tone down the aggression of the title, and imply a more honorable story.
As far as other changes to the film, we already know that Josh Brolin is in for Clive Owen in the lead role, and Dennis Haysbert and Jamie Chung have taken over for Michael Clarke Duncan and Devon Aoki, respectively.
With its U.S. release date pushed back to August 22, 2014, and very little seen from the film so far, we likely won’t have official confirmation on this for a while. Stay tuned though as we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
Tell us, do you think that Sin City: A Dame To Die For is reflective of a change in semantics which may lead to other changes in the plot or casting, or just a subtle change in wording? Let us know in the comment section below.
