The curse of The Spirit is back! Actually, there was no curse, I just made that up. Frank Miller’s film adaptations sure aren’t having a good year though. First, it was the 300 sequel getting bumped from an August 2013 date to a March 2014 and now Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City sequel is suffering the same fate.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (Sin City 2) has been delayed from the original release date of October 4, 2013 to August 22, 2014. By now we would have heard something by now in regards to posters, trailers or advertising in general. Since the October release date was set before the film went into pre-production, I figured this would happen. So much for that Fantastic Fest prediction on this one. It is probably for the best as Rodriguez will have Machete Kills coming up in September.

Take another look @ actress Megan Fox as the character 'April O'Neil', 'Channel 6 Newscaster' on the set of producer Michael Bay's reboot of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", adapting the popular Mirage comic book series.
The new live-action feature featuring CG animated 'Ninja Turtles', stars Will Arnett as 'Vernon Fenwick', Alan Ritchson as 'Raphael', Noel Fisher as 'Michelangelo', Jeremy Howard as 'Donatello', Pete Ploszek as 'Leonardo' and Danny Woodburn as the giant rat 'Splinter'.
The original characters were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in 1984 through a self-published comic book, intended to parody Marvel Comics' "Daredevil" and "New Mutants", Dave Sim's "Cerebus" and Frank Miller's "Ronin".
The story focused on four teenage anthropomorphic turtles, named after Renaissance artists. Trained by their anthropomorphic rat 'sensei' in the art of 'ninjutsu', the Turtles lived in the storm sewers of New York City, battling criminals, »

Anghus Houvouras believes that hardcore fans are killing the potential of superhero movies....
Warning - spoilers ahead...
Comic book adaptations are rife with challenges. Making a $200 million epic that pleases everyone has to be a thankless task. You're never going to please everyone. Especially those hardcore fanboys who believe they know best. I've read a few dozen comments that basically can be reduced to the following thought:
"Superman would never do that."
It's the sentiment you hear from the most die hard fans who believe that they have a better grasp of the character than those adapting the story. While I understand the motivation behing these statement, I find this obsessive level of entitlement puzzling.

Strangely taking its time for a movie whose cast we’re pretty sure is just Skyping on a green screen, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has been pushed back yet again—this time a full year, from its October release date all the way to August 22, 2014. Robert Rodriguez’s second trip through the seedy, monochromatic streets of Frank Miller’s comic has been nominally in the works since the 2005 release of the original, with various production woes delaying it ever since. No official reason was given for this latest date change, so we can only »
Excited for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s return to Sin City? Well unfortunately you’ll have to wait a little bit longer for “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”, as the film has now been officially delayed and moved back almost an entirely year. Originally slated for October 4, 2013, the long-awaited Dimension Films comic book sequel will now instead bow almost a year later on August 22, 2014. I can’t say I’m surprised. I always did think the film’s 2013 release date was a tad optimistic, especially considering that they were still casting people just months ago. The film has a huge number of green screen work, and honestly, I’d rather see them take their time on it and do it right instead of rushing the effects into theaters. Another reason why they’re delaying the film, I think, is that it’s worked for a couple of other high-profile movies. »
In an announcement that should surprise no one, mostly because nobody bothered to care in the first place, Dimension Films has quietly pushed back Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's blood-soaked sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," back nearly a year. Gone is its original October 3rd slot, and it will instead bow on August 22nd, 2014. For those of you really looking forward to a lot of shitty green screen and film noir-y dialogue more mumbled than spoken, this must come as a crushing blow.
Production of the film, which has been endlessly discussed since the original "Sin City" came out way back in 2005, only officially got underway earlier this year. Rodriguez posted a photo of himself working with Josh Brolin on the set of the movie (and by "set" I mean "giant green warehouse where the only prop is a steering wheel") back in February. Since then, »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was scheduled to be released on October 4th, 2013, but The Weinstein Company recently announced that they pushed the film's release date back to August 22nd, 2014. We have to wait almost another year before we see the movie. I don't see it as a big deal. I've already waited eight years for it, another year isn't going to hurt. There is a ton of other good films being released in the mean time to keep us busy while we wait.
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have been in production on the film for a few months. The cast includes Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jamie Chung, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Julia Garner, and Stacy Keach.

Excited to finally see Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite for the long-awaited sequel to Sin City? Well, get ready to wait a little longer. Dimension Films has announced that the follow-up to the 2005 cult classic, titled Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, has been pushed back to 2014. If you listen closely, you can hear millions of fanboys grinding their teeth. The film, which was originally slated to open on October 4, has now been pushed back to August 22, 2014. Dimension has offered no reason for the shift, but a late August opening gives the film a slot in the end of summer lineup -- which is arguably a lot more prestigious than an early October opening. The film is currently the only title opening on that weekend too, which is another plus. This marks the second...

Sad news today. Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s long gestating sequel to Sin City, titled Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, has been delayed from October of this year until August 22nd, 2014. So it has become a much longer wait for fans of the franchise.
It’s a shame, but hopefully this delay helps make the movie better. Any movie with a cast like this deserves the benefit of the doubt: Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jamie Chung, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Julia Garner and Stacy Keach star in the comic book adaptation. »

Fans of Sin City will have to wait even longer for the highly anticipated sequel to hit the big screen. The Weinstein Co.'s Dimension Films has moved Sin City: A Dame To Kill For from an Oct, 4, 2013, release to nearly a year later -- on Aug. 22, 2014. Photos: 3D Movie Rereleases: The Hits and Misses Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are co-directing the movie, which features a star-studded cast including returning castmembers Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis and newcomers Eva Green, Josh Brolin, Jamie Chung and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

After many years of delays, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For finally began filming last October and was slated to arrive in theaters on October 4, 2013. It seems almost fitting then that the release of the film has been delayed to August 22, 2014. No official reason was given by Dimension Films or director Robert Rodriguez for the delay, although this does conceivably scratch Rodriguez from participating in Comic-Con in a few weeks. There is still an outside chance that he may make a quick stop to promo his other sequel Machete Kills and if so, we may learn the reason for the delay. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For blends together two of Frank Miller's classic stories with a couple new stories. The film, like most of Rodriguez films, features an eclectic cast including Josh Brolin,...

Some bad news for anyone looking forward to the long-awaited Sin City sequel... with just under four months to go until its scheduled release date of October 4th, The Weinstein Company has decided to push back the Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller-helmed comic book adaptation a little over ten months, with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For now set to hit cinemas on August 22nd 2014.
The follow-up to Rodriguez and Miller's cult 2005 hit, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is one of two Rodriguez-directed sequels in production (the other being Machete Kills, which arrives in September). The script has been written by Rodriguez, Miller and Oscar-winner William Monahan (The Departed) and the film is set to feature an all-star cast, with returning Sin City stars Bruce Willis (A Good Day to Die Hard), Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), Jessica Alba (Machete), Rosario Dawson (Trance), Jaime King (My Bloody Valentine »

Iron Man and Superman’s latest adventures were also their most grim to date, and the comic book movie crowd is only going to become more dark and twisted over the forthcoming months (see: The Wolverine and Kick-Ass 2). For some, this was all part of the warmup for this October’s helping of brutal violence, when Frank Miller’s graphic novel neo-Noir Sin City would return to the big screen under Robert Rodriguez’ direction, in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
However, those anxiously waiting to see the overdue Sin City movie sequel will have to keep being patient, now that the film has been pushed back ...

Just a few months ago, it looked like 2013 was going to be a great year for fans of Frank Miller's comic book work, as not one but two films based on his novels were set to release. We already knew 300: Rise of an Empire was pushed into March 2014, but now Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has also been pushed into 2014...way into 2014. Come inside for all the details and the new release date.
Fans of the original Sin City have been waiting nearly seven years for the sequel to finally hit theaters, so what's another delay? Right? Okay, so that probably doesn't help when I have to bring the news that A Dame to Kill For has been moved from October 4, 2013 to August 22, 2014.
That's not a small jump by any means, as it's nearly a year later. What's worse, is that no reason has been given (yet) for the delay. »

As it turn out, we are all going to have even longer to wait for the long awaited sequel to "Sin City." The new film, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill for" has moved from a release date of this October 4th all the way to August 22nd of 2014. "A Dame to Kill for," as with the original, is directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez and based on the world created in Frank Miller's graphic novels. The film features Josh Brolin (stepping into Clive Owen's role in the original), Eva Green, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt amongst others. »

Fans of stylized Frank Miller films will be disappointed to know that another of the author's anticipated sequels, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," has now been pushed back, this time to Aug. 22, 2014. The "Sin City" follow-up was previously slated for release this October.
The move comes just one month after "300: Rise of an Empire," also based on Miller's work, was postponed from this August until March 7, 2014.
Dimension Films gave no reason for the "Sin City" delay. The Robert Rodriguez-directed sequel had been gestating for quite some time before finally beginning production in October 2012. "A Dame to Kill For" will be largely based on Miller's second entry in the comic-book series but will incorporate new plotlines written for the movie.
The sequel finds Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven and others joining Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King, »

The "Sin City" sequel might be a movie to kill for — but you won't be killing for it until next year.
Dimension Films have announced that "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" won't hit its previously announced October 4, 2013 release date as originally expected. Instead, the film has been delayed by nearly a full year. It's now arriving on August 22, 2014.
The release date shift is just the latest setback in a long line of delays surrounding the "Sin City" sequel. Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have been trying to get "A Dame to Kill For" off the ground since shortly after their first "Sin City" movie landed as a fan-favorite comic book adaptation.
On the bright side, we can be reasonably sure that we'll actually get to see "A Dame to Kill For" some day, as various roles have been cast, and numerous actors have already finished filming their portions of the movie. »

Briefly: Surprise, surprise - the Sin City sequel has been delayed yet again. Shooting just started earlier this year, initially making us question whether they'd be able to make the original October 2013 release date they had set a few years back. Now word from ERCBoxoffice on Twitter is that Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is being pushed back all the way to summer 2014. The new release date: August 22nd, 2014, or late summer right after Comic-Con 2014. Rodriguez does have a cast lined up: Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jaime King, Jamie Chung and most from the first. I really do hope this is finished eventually and it doesn't get stuck midway through, but now we have over a year to find out. »

Starring Eva Green, Josh Brolin, Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, Jamie Chung, Jessica Alba, Alexa Vega, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Michael Madsen and Dennis Haysbert.
"...it was another dark night in 'Basin City' when lovers 'Dwight' and 'Ava Lord' were reunited. But in 'Sin City', a reunion is never good news. And Ava has plans for 'Dwight'.
"It’s one of those hot nights, dry and windless. The kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things.

After endless years of delays, "Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For" finally went into production in October of last year with plans of being released on October 4th, 2013. But now comes word that Dimension Films has decided to push the movie back all the way until August 22nd, 2014. The sequel 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. The sequel focuses on Dwight (Josh Brolin), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), watching his life go straight to hell. The story takes place prior to "The Big Fat Kill" (featured in "Sin City") and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. The role was played by Clive Owen in the first movie.
