Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez are going all out to make sure no one forgets that Sin City follow-up A Dame To Kill For will be hitting our cinemas hard later this year. The latest front in the film’s visual assault is a series of character posters spread among IGN, EW, IMDB, MTV and Fandango.
Front and centre this time are the returning cast, including Mickey Rourke as leather-faced tough nut Marv, Jessica Alba as slinky, deadly stripper Nancy and Rosario Dawson as ruthless Gail. They're joined by new arrivals Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the unlucky gambler Johnny and, though he’s played by Josh Brolin this time, the brutal Dwight.
A Dame To Kill For spins several tales, including The Long Bad Night, in which Johnny loses more than he gambles for against the wrong opponent. Just Another Saturday Night and the titular A Dame To Kill For, both set before the original film’s tale find Marv pitted against femme fatale Ava Lord (Eva Green) and teamed up with private eye Dwight McCarthy (Clive Owen and Brolin are sharing the role this time.)
With Bruce Willis, Jaime King, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven and Dennis Haysbert all in the cast, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will be worrying your local fleapit from August 29.
