Sin City redefined the way we look at pulpy graphic adaptations, replicating the gritty black and white nature of Frank Miller’s source material, and it looks like we’ll be getting an upped dosage of stylistic violence in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s co-directed sequel. In an effort to get people ready for the coming Red Band trailer release, Comic Con attendees were gifted a teaser trailer for the full Red Band trailer itself – yes, a teaser For a trailer. Here, take a look courtesy of Comic Book Movie:

Moments ago in San Diego, Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller and the cast of “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” finished up their Comic-Con panel in Hall H. With an hour dedicated to the film (most panels are apportioned an hour per studio), the filmmakers wasted no time, showing the first scene and announcing intentions for a third film. “Robert and I are already talking about ‘Sin City 3,’" Miller told the San Diego crowd. "So you'd better show up for number two or they won't pay for it." “Sin City” was released way back in 2005. Why the nine-year wait between movies? Rodriguez said part of the reason was logistical. "I don't think any other time would have been the right time. This cast would not have been there," he said. Evidently, Jessica Alba’s character is no damsel in distress in this film. To the contrary, she’s hardcore. "She »

Hollywood has raided the libraries of Marvel, DC and every other comic book publisher it can find for potential source material, and few writers have aroused its interest like Frank Miller. Miller wrote the graphic novels that inspired “The Dark Knight,” “Daredevil” and “300” while making the “Sin City” movies with Robert Rodriguez. At a panel for “A Dame to Kill for,” the second “Sin City” movie, Miller returned Hollywood's affection in his own signature style. “The comic book movies coming out have been getting better because they've been closer to the source material,” Miller told the crowd at Comic-Con Saturday. »

2014 has already seen some very good films released, with the likes of Boyhood, The Fault in Our Stars, X-Men: Days of Future Past and others doing great business and turning heads in the process. The remainder of 2014 will also see a large number of film releases, and some of those are highly intriguing. Let’s take a look at ten of the films that I, personally, am excited for in the second half of 2014.
Director, James Gunn, tasselled my hair playfully when he put a little independent film named “Super” on the table in 2010, an underrated Rainn Wilson fronted comedy drama about a guy who thinks that god is telling him to fight crime.
