I have to say that I’ve been waiting for a first peek at Sin City: A Dame to Kill For for a long damn time. When I first heard they were making a sequel to the original, I just about peed myself. Now, after several delays throughout the years, the movie is almost upon us. To let us know that it’s coming, the powers-that-be have more graciously bestowed a trailer upon us. Check out a little of what we can expect from the new Sin City below. (more…)
It’s been a long and grueling wait, but it seems like we will finally get a chance to feast our eyes on the gritty and grey visual splendor that is the Sin City: A Dame to Kill For traier… tomorrow. (more…)
Rumored, denied, planned, left to rot – the Sin City sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has undergone a very lengthy process of getting from the minds of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez to production. After that, there were even more delays, including bumping the release date to next year. But finally, there has been a sign from above. Or rather a poster from the production company. Check out the new teaser poster below. (more…)
Just when you thought things were going to get wonderful, they go and drop some news on you like this. The new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was at the top of my list of movies to see for this year and I’m sure there are many out there who were just as excited to see the next chapter in the Frank Miller/Robert Rodriguez noir-fest. Now, I’m gonna have to wait a whole other year to see it? Dammit.
Sure, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’s original release date wasn’t until October 4th of this year, but now it’s moved all the way back to August 22nd of 2014. Not only does this mean we have to wait, it also means, perhaps more relevantly, that the powers that be see the new Sin City as being worth of some late-summer competition.
Oh well. Better to get it right than just drop something on us that isn’t quite finished. If it’s as good as the first flick, the wait will be worth it.
Thanks to ComicBookMovie for the heads-up.
The much-anticipated Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has been long in development and is now a few months into shooting. Yet still director Robert Rodriguez hasn’t finished up his casting? Apparently not, because we here at the big and beautiful NB just got word that two new faces are being added to the movie’s line-up. Expect to see the delicious and talented Eva Green and Julia Garner strutting their stuff for Frank Miller’s next great production.
Green will be taking on the role of Ava Lord, AKA the titular “Dame” that people seem to want to kill for. She’ll be appearing alongside Josh Brolin in one of the story arcs, one that revisits Dwight McCarthy pre-Sin City the first. Green’s getting the thumbs-up of approval from both Rodriguez and Miller, who have been quoted as saying:
Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City. From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us.
Garner will be taking on a more… physically interesting role as one of the city’s seemingly endless supply of strippers. She’ll be joining up with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a different story arc, “The Long Bad Night.”
The two actresses will be working alongside some of the Sin City alumni, including Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jamie King, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis, as well as more than a few fresh faces.
Check it out when Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits the screens on October 4th of this year.

Word is that Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has added Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), and Jeremy Piven (Entourage). What characters the three will play is anyone’s guess at the moment.
The movie will follow the original movie and comics form of multiple short stories set in the same world. The stories and a short idea of each plot:
Dwight McCarthy is called by his former lover, Ava Lord, who wants his help to escape her abusive husband, billionaire Damien Lord. However, Dwight soon learns that Ava’s true intentions are much sinister than they appear.
On the night John Hartigan met back up with Nancy in That Yellow Bastard, Marv regains consciousness on a highway overlooking the Projects, surrounded by dead young guys, unable to remember how he got there.
Set after Hartigan’s suicide at the end of That Yellow Bastard, Nancy tries to survive the remainder of the night with Roark Junior/Yellow Bastard’s men on her trail.
Johnny, a cocky gambler, disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game.
The movie is set to hit theater screens on October 4th.
It’s a new year, and along with the resolutions you’ve probably already broken, there’s a fresh slate of films to look forward to, and Nerd Bastards has chosen 25 to keep your eye on. Some titles you’ll know, others you might not, but one thing’s for sure, by the end of the year you’ll think some of them rocked and the rest of them sucked. As to which films will go which way, I’ll let that be a pleasant surprise.
Here are the 25 Nerdy Movies to Watch For in 2013: (more…)
The sad passing of Michael Clarke Duncan in September left a sizable whole in Hollywood, and an equally sizable hole in the cast of the upcoming sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Duncan was scheduled to return to the role of mob enforcer Manute in the Robert Rodriguez-directed sequel, but with his untimely death someone was going to have to step into the part, and the filmmakers seemed to have found their someone.
The someone in question is Dennis Haysbert, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Haysbert is famous for his TV roles as 24‘s President Palmer,The Unit’sSgt. Maj. Blane and All State Insurance’s spokesperson. As you may or may not know, with his a deep, gravely voice and standing at an imposing height of six-feet, four inches, Haysbert makes for a sadly ideal Ducan substitute for the film and the part.
Duncan died in September from complications after suffering a heart attack this summer. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the sequel to the 2005 hit Sin City, is currently in production for an October 2013 release.

Because you demanded it (probably not), 20th Century Fox is moving up the release of the 3-D version of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith by a week. The re-release will now hit your 3-D enhanced screens on October 4, 2013, just two weeks after the release of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. This, of course, follows on the successful 3-D release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace this past February 10, which made $102.7 million at the worldwide box office.
What does the competition look like now for the films? AOTC will open against Ron Howard’s latest film Rush starring Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl, and Disney’s 3-D re-release of The Little Mermaid. ROTS, meanwhile, will face heavy competition against the Vince Vaughn comedy The Delivery Man, the thriller Paranoia, and the comic book sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
It will be interesting to see who will win the battle for nerd money between Sin City and Sith, and it will be interesting to see who gets more 3-D screens, Clones or Mermaid, but clearly Fox is trying to get the contentious prequels out of the way so that they can get to the undoubtedly more profitable 3-D re-release of the original trilogy.
