The trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For features private eye Dwight McCarthy, played by Josh Brolin, gripping the wheel of a speeding convertible as if it were his mortal enemy's neck. Sin City, released in 2005, and the sequel, directed by Robert Rodriguez, are based on the works of graphic novelist Frank Miller, who wrote and co-directed both films. Miller populates his novels with lovingly rendered classic cars, so unsurprisingly Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is crammed with gorgeous Detroit iron: a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air, 1960 Corvette, 1959 Cadillac El Dorado, 1948 Tucker Torpedo,

Nine years since the visually groundbreaking, avant-garde hit “Sin City,” Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s biggest mistake with their next incarnation is replacing the first film’s bloodthirsty impact with too much nudity.
The film is equally violent as it is naked, but we’ve almost become numb to such mutilation and it’s certainly part of this story. These talented filmmakers insult audiences by thinking Eva Green’s rabid libido and willingness to bare it all can outshine the film’s need to be otherwise compelling. She’ll satisfy the horny little boy or girl in you, but leave the mature man or woman you really are intellectually unsatisfied.
In film and television, Green has clearly made a decision she can’t go back from. »

Here’s your opportunity: write a Crazy script for The Goonies 2, because Josh Brolin says he’ll show up for it.

Comic-book iconoclast Frank Miller is his own best character. After his much-imitated, years-long run on Marvel Comics' Daredevil, he bullishly pushed the boundaries of how mainstream comics stories were told in milestone titles like The Dark Knight Returns, Ronin, and 300. His heroes are similarly self-assured beyond mere arrogance: They're above reproach, a standard that Miller maintains as a rejection of psychological realism. His comics often take place in decadent cities. But even in his Sin City comics, Miller maintains an undiminished — albeit deranged — sense of optimism and romance. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Robert Rodriguez's new "translation" of Miller's hyper-violent neo-noir comics, Josh Brolin plays a sucker that pines for Eva Green's vicious (and frequently naked) femme fatale with a little help from killer friends Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson. Vulture talked to Miller about how he stays optimistic, what the future of comics »

Josh Brolin showed up on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night and while he was there he discussed all the talk of a Goonies sequel. This is a movie a lot of people have been talking about, including Sean Astin and director Richard Donner. Donner has said several times that the sequel is going to happen, and that it will come from a story created by Steven Spielberg.
Brolin says that he hears about a sequel every five years or so, and he doesn't quite believe it will happen. If it does though he's ready and willing to do it, but jokes that by the time it actually happens he'll be in a walker. It's also the 30 anniversary of the original Goonies film, and they talk about that as well. One of the coolest parts about the interview is when Brolin sports a red bandana like the one »

Once again co-directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," the visually striking follow-up to the 2005 hit, gets even more eyeball-popping the second time around -- literally, sure, but also because this time it's in 3D.
Acting as both a sequel or prequel depending on the story, the second "Sin City" follows a handful of storylines (some old, some created for the movie), all connected by that trademark heavily-stylized ultra-violence and the town's sleazy saloon/strip club. There's a typical Saturday night for Marv (Mickey Rourke), Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and his ill-fated buy-in at a high-stakes backroom poker game, Dwight (now played by Josh Brolin) returning to both Old Town and the clutches of Ava Lord (Eva Green), and Jessica Alba's Nancy attempting to avenge the death of Bruce Willis' Hartigan.
So, as you might expect, a dame is far from the »

Coinciding with its U.S. release today, a new character poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has been released online featuring Lady Gaga as Bertha; check it out below, and if you’ve not done so already you can read our ★★★★ review of the film here…
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

Josh Brolin told Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon on Thursday that he definitely wants to be involved in the rumored sequel for The Goonies, the 1985 cult-classic adventure-comedy that gave the acclaimed actor his big break. But there's a problem: He can't tell how serious the reports are – partly because he doesn't trust the latest source (TMZ) and partly because the sequel idea comes up all the time without real results.
In the TMZ interview that re-fueled the rumor mill, original Goonies director Richard Donner talked about his plans for the sequel, »
Where do we stand on The Goonies 2? Obviously, we.re behind the idea. So is original Goonies director Richard Donner, who helped put the movie sequel back on our radars by telling TMZ it was happening. But Josh Brolin is taking the "I.ll believe it when I see it" road, and I.m not sure we can blame him. Brolin appeared on The Tonight Show last night, as you can see in the clip below, and discussed the possibility of The Goonies 2 while also douple-dipping by promoting his turn in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. And because The Goonies celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon started with sequel talk. Brolin played along, but emphasized that these conversations happen every couple of years. It.s gotten to the point where they have said it so many times where I.ll »
It took nearly a decade, but Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have finally made a sequel to Sin City. The original was a visual tour de force that looked like nothing we'd ever seen before on this scale, and handily fused elements of film noir, action, mystery, and humor. It was loud, and it was fun. With Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the duo of directors have upped the ante in terms of visual flare but lost a great deal of the fun.
The film tells three short stories (and one tiny micro-story to start things off), with the titular "A Dame To Kill For" getting the most screen time. Your enjoyment of the film will depend on which of the stories resonates with you, because they're all truly a mixed bag. The "Dame" storyline is the one that captivated the bulk of my interest- anchored by strong »

It's been 30 years since "The Goonies" hit the big screen, but Josh Brolin is ready for a sequel!The "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" star stopped by "The Tonight Show" on Thursday night, where he talked about a possible second installment of the cult classic.Brolin got his start in the 1985 kids adventure film. Conan O'Brien Reenacts "Goonies" Scene Dressed as Sloth "You do a movie like that, you don’t know how it’s going to turn out, and then it turns out into a cult film," he told Jimmy Fallon. "And then you’re sick of hearing it after twenty years, because you haven’t done a film that’s any good that actually matches the Goonies." When the late night host pointed out that Richard Donner said [Steven] Spielberg had an idea for the sequel, Brolin responded, "I would do it in a second. Of course, »

There have been rumblings of a sequel to The Goonies for years, with the most recent, seemingly solid news coming from director Richard Donner saying that a sequel to The Goonies is in development. This is one of those situations where that's been said so many times before hat we'll only believe it when we see it. Still, it's cool that an actor like Josh Brolin still embraces his past association with a movie like that, especially when Christian Bale doesn't seem to want anything to do with The Newsies. So Jimmy Fallon had some fun with Brolin on "The Tonight Show" to honor The Goonies on its 30th anniversary. Watch! Here's Josh Brolin celebrating The Goonies with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" on NBC: Considering The Goonies panel that was supposed to happen at Comic-Con got canceled, we're betting that plans that Donner was talking about back in »

Goonies never say die, though their yeses do sometimes come rather begrudgingly. After spending much of his morning Reddit Ama dishing behind-the-scenes stories about the kiddie cult flick, Josh Brolin continued to use his “Sin City 2” press blitz to discuss “The Goonies” — a movie released 30 years ago — on the “Tonight” Show. Also read: George Clooney, Josh Brolin to Star in ‘Hail, Caesar!’ for Coen Brothers, Universal Wearing a throwback red bandana gifted to him by host Jimmy Fallon (and thus bearing a striking resemblance to his teen self), Brolin said he'd be interested in participating in a “Goonies” sequel… »

True confession time -- the first time that I watched Sin City (2005), I wasn't enthused due to my naivete. However, a recent viewing with the mindset of watching a graphic novel brought to life changed my perspective drastically. I found myself engaged by the characters, and therefore I was anxious to see what co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller had in the cards with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
This film is both a prequel and sequel at the same time, as we learn more about the central characters from the first installment -- Marv (Mickey Rourke) is still bashing in heads but this time he gets called in to help Nancy (Jessica Alba) and Dwight (Josh Brolin) with their own personal vendettas. Nancy grieves for the death of her childhood hero and only love, Hartigan (Bruce Willis), who keeps his promise to never leave her even if »
