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.

It took directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller nine long years to bring “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” to the big screen. Unfortunately, critics suggest the sequel was not worth the wait. The Weinstein Company release has received mostly negative reviews so far, with just a 39 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is a significant dive compared to the 78 percent approval rating “Sin City” premiered to in 2005.

Rolling Stone movie critic Peter Travers gets a colorful upgrade in his latest installment of "At the Movies," mimicking the moody red-white-and-black backdrop of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Travers still gets a thrill out of the visual splendor conjured by co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller in this newly released sequel to the acclaimed 2005 noir-thriller. But he's less impressed with the film's confusing storyline, which introduces a number of bizarre plot points and re-hashes old ideas.
Travers starts off praising the original film, calling it "damn-near a landmark. »
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 »

In 2005, director Robert Rodriquez transformed author Frank Miller’s neo-noir graphic novel Sin City into a stunning, cutting-edge film. Rodriguez, adoringly making a living comic book, utilized a groundbreaking mix of digital style and animated renderings. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is a continuing story involving old and new characters.
Miller, who also co-directed, utilizes an established story as inspiration, but also includes two new tales. The narrative, somewhat fragmented, is again a gritty crime noir piece with intensified aesthetics of violence, sex, and revenge. Rodriguez and Miller keep everything relatively familiar and, although “Dame” wields uncompromising style into every scene, it doesn’t demand much more.
No one is innocent in Sin City. Some familiar faces are still dodging their demise, but a few new ones looking for trouble also journey about Sin City’s desperate streets. Nancy (Jessica Alba) hasn’t been the same since the »

It was all the way back in February that we brought you the news that Thn’s golden boy Joseph Gordon-Levitt would be producing an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. Since then it has pretty much been complete radio silence about the project.
Whilst speaking to moviefone the actor turned director has finally shared an update. He revealed that there was a team of people hard at work on the project, a team which features some of the talent who worked on Nolan’s Dark Knight series. Excited? You should be.
“Right now we’re working on a script. It’s me and [David S] Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros. It’s a really cool team of people. It’s a lot of the same people who worked on the Nolan ‘Batman’ movies. It’s really exciting. There’s not a script yet, »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is easily one of the busiest and most talented young actors working in Hollywood, and he's been branching out in other aspects of the business. On top of acting, he's currently running his HitRECord web project, he made his directorial debut with Don Jon, and he was an executive producer on Looper. He's now looking at developing the long awaited big-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Sandman, which he is looking to star in and direct.
"It's a lot of the same people who worked on the Nolan Batman movies. It's really exciting. There's not a script yet, we're still kind of working it out because it's such a complicated adaptation because Sandman wasn't written as novels. Sin City was written as a novel. »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, out on Friday, once again pieces together several intertwining stories from Frank Miller’s graphic novel series Sin City, nearly a decade after the original film blew away big screens with its critically acclaimed color processing technique. Miller and Robert Rodriguez's second neo-noir action-thriller stars Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Juno Temple, Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Lady Gaga, Rosario Dawson, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven and Julia Garner, among others. Dimension Films and The Weinstein Co. are releasing the R-rated sequel, which is produced by Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions, Aldamisa, Ar

Like Watchmen, Sandman is considered to be one of those comic books which is impossible to bring to the big screen. However, as Zack Snyder eventually did with Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ graphic novel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is looking to helm a live-action adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s beloved Sandman.
The Don Jon director is attached to produce and direct the movie from a pitch by Man of Steel writer David Goyer. Jack Thorne (A Long Way Down) was recently revealed to be working on the script, but in a recent interview, Levitt confirmed that they’re still very much in the early stages of developing the project.
“Right now we’re working on a script,” the actor and filmmaker revealed. “It’s me and Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros. It’s a really cool team of people. »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is the long awaited sequel to Sin City (2005), a film which grossed over $158 million worldwide and became a fan favorite in no small part due to a visual style that bleeds neo-noir like Frank Miller’s artwork itself. Some have said that it is among the most faithful comic book adaptations ever made. Having the original author and the artist of the comic aboard as the co-director and writer didn’t hurt a bit, clearly. Miller and Robert Rodriguez once again team up to direct the sequel. Frank Miller is the writer (and comic book legend). Sin City: A Dame to Kill For also boasts the return of many cast members. Something you might not expect given the nine-year-gap between films.

A feature film adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s seminal Sandman comic book has been in development hell for years now, leaving many fans doubtful that the beloved series would ever make it to the big screen. Late last year, however, The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer (who recently signed a first-look deal with Warner Brothers) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt announced that they were working on an adaptation, with Gaiman himself on board to give them a hand.
There’s no word on when we can expect to see the film hit theaters, or whether or not it’s one of the nine untitled DC projects slated for release between 2016 and 2020. Rumor has it that Gordon-Levitt will star in and direct the project as well, but according to him, his focus right now is nailing the screenplay. He recently spoke with Moviefone, and gave the following »

Chicago – When the first “Sin City” (2005) was released – based on the graphic novels by Frank Miller – the conversion of a film to a noir-like comic book atmosphere was pioneering. The sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” has heightened that look, but this time has much less to say.
With an all-star cast, and leftover revenge factors from the first film, co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller – with a guest director credit from Quentin Tarantino – pile on the quality kills, nudity and extreme gunplay. This plays fine for the 15 year old boy in all of us, but doesn’t challenge itself beyond that commonality, and the film suffers from a redundancy that starts to draw away even from the super hyper, black-and-white city of darkness. “Sin City” still packs a jolt to the senses, but once the first wave hits, the rest hit the shore with diminishing power. »

Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller return to direct this stylized adaptation of Frank Miller's comics, with a number of returning stars from 2005's Sin City including Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, along with new additions such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin and Eva Green. But the highlight of this latest footage is seeing iconic cult actor Stacy Keach as Wallenquist, the mysterious and powerful German-American leader of the Basin City mob. Check him out, along with plenty of praise from the critics.
Love the Sinner: Miller & Rodriguez Bring Back Hyperstylized Noir with Mixed Results
It has been almost a decade since the visually innovative Sin City thrummed into theaters, cloaked in lascivious shades of film noir nightmares. In between now and then, co-director and creator Frank Miller stepped out on his own in 2008 with The Spirit, an abysmal record of why perhaps Robert Rodriguez was a necessary cohort to return on the sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Suffering from the regular pitfalls of the overly ambitious sequel, this chapter will surely disappoint those hoping to experience the same level of creative vicissitudes because this go round is a brittle, wearied tethering of varied storylines. But, imperfect their latest creation may be, it isn’t without significant entertainment value. As cheaply as it tends to favor its multitudinous women, doling out an equal helping of misogyny with its crackpot male fantasy version of empowered females, »
