Stars who reprised Oscar winning roles

26 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Douglas. Anthony Hopkins. Just two actors who've returned to play the parts that won them Oscars...

When Oscar glory comes knocking for a successful Hollywood actor, it must be hugely tempting when the chance arrives for them to reprise that award-winning role. But while sequels and reboots are a common enough sight in the movie industry these days, examples of stars who've returned to their Oscar-winning roles are relatively few and far between.

The reason, perhaps, is because it's so difficult to recapture the creative lightning in a bottle that led to the Oscar win in the first place. Nevertheless, some actors do occasionally take up the offer and return to the filmmaking well. And as the list below proves, the results can sometimes be highly accomplished - though seldom quite as powerful and fresh as the films they're following...

Second Opinion – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

25 August 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

I feel like I should temper this review by letting you know that I have been very excited for this film since its announcement. The casting announcements only heightened my excitement to the point that when I saw that my local cinema was doing a double screening of the original I leapt at the opportunity. I’ll say it now. I loved this film.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For gives the audience a great mix of old »

Meet The Murderous Men Of ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

25 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is a film that has been many years in the making. Critics and audiences alike went mad for Sin City when it was released way back in 2005. It had all the ingredients of a perfect film; it was gritty, violent, sexy and stylish. Finally back for round two, the film sees many familiar faces – as well as several new ones – once again inhabit the seedy world.

Yesterday we brought you a run down on all the lovely ladies that take up residence within the walls of the fictitious Basin City. Today we delve into the lives of the crooked criminals and valiant vigilantes that have both the X and Y chromosomes. The men of Sin City range from the good, to the bad, to the seriously demented, with the likes of Mickey Rourke, Jeremy Piven, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dennis Haysbert all on  board. »

​Box Office: Why Did 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Tank?

25 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Judging by the pre-release hype, you'd think "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" was a long- and eagerly-awaited sequel, a comic book movie for connoisseurs, whose all-star cast, eye-popping visuals, and violent action would make it the summer's last blockbuster. Given that the original opened at $29.1 million in 2005 dollars, the sequel, with a price boost from 3D, was expected to debut at least in the high teens. Such an opening might be good enough for first place, with a tight race expected among "Sin City," lingering hits "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and fellow newcomer "If I Stay."

And yet, when the smoke cleared, the film premiered with just an estimated $6.5 million, opening way down in eighth place. The other movies all did about as well as predicted -- "Guardians," "Turtles," and "If I Stay" all drew around $17 million, with "Guardians" claiming a slight edge »

Sin City's Robert Rodriguez "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting ability

24 August 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Rodriguez said that he was "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting skills.

The Sin City director first worked with the musician on Machete Kills, before offering her a cameo in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.

Rodriguez told E! News: "I told her she had to be in it [Sin City 2]... The camera loves her.

"She's a great performer. She's performed twice for me now and I was blown away by her discipline. She studied acting before she became a singer and you could really tell."

He continued: "She happened to be on tour in Houston, just a couple of cities away from us in Austin. She was ready.

"She brought her own wigs! I said, 'We're not going to have time to make a wig for you.' She showed up, we did the scene, she knocked it out of the park and then she was back on tour. »

The Cars of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Drive Film's Hyperrealism

23 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

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,

22 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, from co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, once again brings Miller’s graphic novels to the big screen.

Once again, crime and violence anchor the plot for the movie’s cast of characters, which includes stripper Nancy (Jessica Alba) cop Hartigan (Bruce Willis), poker player Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the monstrous Marv (Mickey Rourke). Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green and Powers Boothe also star.

Film Review: More Risqué ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Doesn’t Dare to Trailblaze Again

22 August 2014 8:21 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Sex sells, sure, but the film-noir sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” makes you feel dirty if you’re left thinking that’s enough.

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.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

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 in you really are intellectually unsatisfied.

In film and television, Green has clearly made a decision »

Sin City Creator Frank Miller on the Future of Comics and Collaborating With Robert Rodriguez

22 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

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 Talks About Goonies 2 with Jimmy Fallon

22 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

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 »
