If you already have the companion book by now, then you’re just in time for the Frank Miller/Tom Wheeler-created gender-bending sword-and-shield period thriller, Cursed. The ten-episode series stars Katherine Langford and will premiere on Netflix beginning July 17, and we now have a trailer to offer a deeper glimpse into the duo’s incarnation of the Arthurian saga with a female twist!
The new trailer for Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For, may very well be the sexiest trailer I have ever seen for any action movie as of late. Ever.
Directed by Robert Rodriguez and original graphic novel author Frank Miller, the film made a splash at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend promoting the sequel to 2005’s Sin City, and this week, the official SDCC red-band trailer has now gone viral. To be honest though, I don’t even need to say much beyond this point. The trailer pretty much sells itself, and yes, it’s quite sexy, in almost every way imaginable.
In the dark alleys of Sin City, Dwight (Josh Brolin taking over from Clive Owen) seeks revenge against the woman who betrayed him, femme fatale Ava Lord (Eva Green). Meanwhile, Nancy (Jessica Alba) is trying to cope with the death of her protector, Detective Hartigan (Bruce Willis), and a gambler named Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is out to destroy his enemy at his best game.
Watch the footage and get ready for its August 22 release!
P.S. – Eva Green, you had me at your first character poster. 😉
The promotional campaign for the latest noir action crime follow-up from co-directors Robert Rodriguez and graphic novelist Frank Miller, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, had a small share of mild controversy in the past few weeks due to the MPAA’s banned poster with actress Eva Green’s right boob; A non-issue if you ask me. I dig the poster, and I’m hard-pressed to believe I’m alone in its approval.
At any rate, the film is poised to release nationwide on August 22. I still need to see the first film so I can have a viable opinion. And this is my niche too, so… yeah.
*Sigh* …Life gets in the way of living. (borrowing that one from Darren actually, lol.)
Check out the trailer below and feel free to take a gander at the latest Reddit AMA Miller himself hosted on Wednesday!
Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite to bring Miller’s visually stunning “Sin City” graphic novels back to the big screen in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more notorious inhabitants.
Following the release of an animated trailer teaser on Wednesday with a recent slate of teaser photos this month a new trailer was unveiled for the upcoming release of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, written to interlink stories set before and after the events of the 2005 film, Sin City. The film arrives in theaters on August 22, 2014 with plans already in motion for a third installment.
Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war.
If graphic novels teach you nothing else, they teach you just how great they can be for source material for what potentially great films. Director Zack Snyder proved this in 2007 by adapting author Frank Miller’s work for the big screen with 300, and now repeats the process as co-writer and producer for the follow-up, 300: Rise Of An Empire.
