From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series will premiere on Tuesday, March 11th and I recently had a chance to take part in an interview call with Robert Rodriguez. Continue reading for highlights, which include him talking about expanding the movie’s mythology, incorporating unused script pages from Quentin Tarantino, and working with Greg Nicotero on the new makeup effects:
Expanding the mythology from the movie: “In the original film, when I first read the script, it didn’t really take Mexico into account. I added into the original movie things that I researched in Aztec cultures and mythologies, and found a blood cult that worships snakes. The last shot of the pyramid to sort of hinted a larger mythology.
I always thought that was a cool idea we didn’t get to explore further in the film because it just wasn’t written that way. But I left it there »

"Sin City is where you go in with your eyes open – or you don't come out at all." So says Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) during the trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the long-awaited sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez' acclaimed 2005 noir-thriller. Though barely over a minute long, the clip offers a gripping preview of the seedy brilliance that lies ahead – including lots of sex, gun-wielding "dames," creepy color schemes and hair-raising one-liners.

"I really held back the first time, because I didn’t know whether audiences would go for it, " said director Robert Rodriguez about 2005's Sin City back in the spring of 2012, but he admitted that things would change for the sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. "This one is going to push way further towards the books. It’s going to shock and surprise people."
It may be too early to tell whether Rodriguez has pulled off his promise, but the look of the first trailer for A Dame to Kill For picks up right where the original left off, utilizing stark black-and-white photography with the occasional color flourish as it depicts a city of ill intent and questionable morals. Mickey Rourke is back as the tough and grizzled Marv and Jessica Alba returns as the stripper with a heart of gold Nancy Callahan, who has revenge on »

Nine years ago I was lucky enough to get to attend an advance screening of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City. Having just read the comics, my anticipation was through the roof. I distinctly remember moving to a different position in my 9 to 5 job and I took an extended lunch just to see the film. It was one of the longest work days I had that day but it was well worth it.
Nine. Years. Later. Who knew it would take that long to have a sequel to such a groundbreaking film. I’m just happy it is happening. Things have changed. There are a change of actors for the roles of Dwight (now played by Josh Brolin – who might be a better fit), Miho and sadly, due to Michael Clarke Duncan’s passing, Manute. There is an additional character that hasn’t been in the books called Johnny played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. »

Sin City is the place you go with your eyes open, or you don't come out at all. Much the same can be said for the new "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" trailer, too.

Still, with so many blink-and-you'll-miss-it moments in this first glimpse of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's ...

The pictures? They were just the initial lure, the eye candy to distract your peepers and get the interest bubbling in your gut like so much cheap soup. Now comes the first real punch: the trailer, full of noir and narration and the lingering promise of rain-soaked vistas all brought to life in vibrant monochrome with just the occasional colour highlight splashed or stabbed or thrown upon the screen. Sin City’s here, people, and you’d best be ready. Those two filmmaking fellas, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are back, see? Set their studio up to bring us the linked tales of A Dame To Kill For, once more letting a little light shine upon the dark urban sprawl (not too much, mind). Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s trying his luck this time, appearing in The Long Bad Night as Johnny, a gambler who loses more than he expects when he wins against the wrong opponent. »

it's kind of hard to believe, but Robert Rodriguez' feature film adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel series Sin City was released nine years ago, way back in 2005. Though a sequel has been talked about since the moment the film hit theaters, various delays resulted in the project being put on the back burner, with Rodriguez instead directing his attention to films like Planet Terror and Machete.
Now, nearly a full decade later, that long-awaited sequel is finally on its way into our lives, and the very first trailer has just hit the net.
Titled Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and again directed by both Rodriguez and Miller, the flick serves as a prequel and a sequel to the 2005 film, telling four different interlinking stories. Though two of the stories were a part of Miller's original series, the other two were written specifically for the film, »
