We saw the first trailer for Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’ hard-boiled noir sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For early last month. Here comes the new, shorter promo, which features a batch of new footage and more slinky hyper-sexuality and violence.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is among the newcomers to the City this time, starring in The Long Bad Night as Johnny, a gambler who loses more than he expects when he wins against the wrong opponent. Once again we have Mickey Rourke as Marv, whose stories (Just Another Saturday Night and the titular A Dame To Kill For) are set before the first film’s The Hard Goodbye. The title story will see him pitted against femme fatale Ava Lord (Eva Green) and teamed up with private eye Dwight McCarthy (Clive Owen and Josh Brolin; who play the troubled antihero before and after some facial tinkering.)
Miller once more adapted the stories from his graphic novels for a session in front of green screens. Returning for a second shot are Bruce Willis as Detective John Hartigan, Rosario Dawson as Gail and Jamie King as Goldie and Wendy. And there are other new faces, including Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven and Dennis Haysbert. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For crashes in on August 29.
