#FIRSTLOOK: “SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR” TRAILER
Back in 2004 I remember being so totally obsessed with Robert Rodriguez‘s Adaptation of Frank Miller‘s SIN CITY. I had the Poster on my wall and I may have called-in a Sickie at work to watch it. Although it took nine frickin’ years to happen, its long-awaited Sequel is well on its way and just released is the Trailer for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR!
The Town’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants.
Cast (including many returning Members) includes: Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Jamie Chung, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Julia Garner, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Jeremy Piven and Stacey Keach. Did I mention Lady Gaga makes an appearance? Those of us scratching heads at her Muppets Holiday Special Collabo with Gordon-Levitt, might understand a little bit better now.
