The reverence comic book readers hold for Frank Miller is understandable when one contemplates the depth of his influence on popular culture. Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy drew heavily from Miller’s reimagining of the iconic superhero in his 1986 series The Dark Knight Returns and 1987’s Batman: Year One. You can see shadows of Miller’s signature artistic style in the films of Zack Snyder, who directed the film version of Miller’s graphic novel 300 before taking on Watchmen and Sucker Punch.
But while his takes on classic DC heroes such as Batman and Daredevil were singular, Miller’s original creation, his hyper-noir Sin City graphic novels, may be his most celebrated work. Set in the deeply cruel and corrupt town known as Basin City, its vignettes paint portraits of tough men with tender souls, and women who are sexy, sinister and controversial… but never simple, »

For every excited fanboy eagerly anticipating the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, there is an equally pessimistic moviegoer ready to raise a sceptical eyebrow.
The film has been heavily criticised for its strange casting choices, seemingly unnecessary characters and overly ambitious narrative. However, fans have been particularly enthused about Zack Snyder’s intention to incorporate elements of Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns into the films script. This, coupled with the gorgeous design of Batman’s new costume, has generated enough positive publicity to keep the film at the forefront of moviegoers’ minds. Having said that, a film teaming up the worlds two most famous superheroes doesn’t need to impress anyone in order to get bums on seats in May 2016.

Following on from the Sdcc red band trailer, three new character images for the long-awaited Sin City: A Dame to Kill For have arrived online, featuring new cast addition Eva Green (Ava Lord) and returning stars Mickey Rourke (Marv) and Jessica Alba (Nancy). Take a look…
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.

A new red band trailer for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' has made its way online once more bringing to vibrant life the pages of Miller's original graphic novel.

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' stars Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin ('Oldboy'), Rosario Dawson ('Trance'), Jaime King, Juno Temple ('Magic Magic'), Dennis Haysbert, Alexa Vega, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Joseph Gordon-Levit ('Looper') and Jeremy Piven ('Entourage'). »
Eva Green is apparently too hot for ABC. The network has rejected an ad for the upcoming Robert Rodriguez film “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” because of two scenes in which the “Penny Dreadful” actress appears to be naked, a spokesperson for Dimension Films, the movie's distributor, told TheWrap on Tuesday. Dimension is appealing the network's decision not to run the ad, the spokesperson added.

Last week, Austin filmmaker Robert Rodriguez was at San Diego Comic-Con, promoting his latest movie Sin City: A Dame to Kill For with panels and parties -- even walking the convention floor in costume.
This week, the Austin Film Society has announced it will host the Texas premiere of the Sin City sequel, which will take place Wednesday, August 20 at the Paramount Theatre. The screening will be in 3D -- how many chances have you had to watch a 3D movie downtown at the Paramount?
Tickets are on sale now only for Afs members, who have until August 5 to buy tickets at a discounted rate -- as low as $20 for the balcony. On August 6, general-public tickets go on sale with no Afs member discount. Tickets include admission to an afterparty at the Rattle Inn.

“Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” has been in the making since the success of the original “Sin City” movie in 2005. The sequel has Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller directing the film adaptation with an upcoming release this August. I was a big fan of the first movie as an exercise in comic book filmmaking, its sequel should be a welcomed follow up. With 9 year in between movies, maybe Rodriquez and Miller will give audiences something worth waiting for. The sequel film has the same “vignette” structure as the first movie. “A Dame to Kill For” Dwight McCarthy (Josh Brolin) is summoned by his former lover, Ava [ Read More ]

It’s been a long nine years for the follow-up to Sin City, but in August we finally return to the eerie dark underbelly of Basin City.

Many others join the stunning cast list, even Lady Gaga makes a small appearance in the trailer as a diner waitress.

From left to right we have the taut buttocks of Rosario Dawson ('Trance'), the chrome domed Josh Brolin ('Oldboy'), the chisel chinned Mickey Rourke, the beautiful Eva Green ('Dark Shadows'), the stunning Jessica Alba, the beaten mush of Joseph Gordon-Levit ('Looper') and the sour faced Bruce Willis.

"...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'.

San Diego - Josh Brolin donned Thanos' fists during the Marvel panel at Comic-Con this past weekend, but earlier in the day, he appeared in black-and-white. As previously reported, co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller presented new clips and a new trailer for "Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For," and Brolin appeared as Dwight McCarthy. Or, rather, as the "different" Dwight: Clive Owen played the comic book character in the first 2005 film. "It's not a new face, it's a different face. I don't put the two together... We're all actors trying to get a job," Brolin explained on the red carpet ahead of the presentation. His "job" ethos extended into this fruitful new period of acting in his life. Brolin has the new Coen Brothers film "Hail, Caesar" lined up, just finished up on "Guardians of the Galaxy," will be seen in "Inherent Vice" this fall... and he's thankful for the work. »

Gotham is one of Fox's most buzzed-about new shows debuting this Fall, and for good reason. I saw the first episode of the Batman-inspired series, and there's a lot to love. The show revolves around James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as a young detective working his way up the ranks in Gotham. We meet him right as he and his partner Harvey (Donal Logue) take on the murder of one Bruce Wayne's (David Mazouz) parents. The series premieres on Sept. 22, and if you like what you read below, you should definitely check out the trailer. It starts out with a bang . . . literally. Let's be clear about one thing: Gotham isn't the story of Batman. It's the story of James Gordon attempting to clean up the crime-ridden streets of Gotham before a superhero rises up to clear the scum away, and Gordon's story begins with the death of young Bruce's parents. I'm not giving much away here, »

Warner Brothers pulled out all the stops on Saturday morning by opening their Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The highly anticipated Man of Steel sequel wasn’t scheduled to make an appearance at the convention, but we knew they couldn’t resist showing fans something, and oh, show something they did!
Not only did Zack Snyder bring out the film’s trio of stars, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot, but he revealed the first official image of Gadot as Wonder Woman and showed off some great teaser footage. There unfortunately isn’t a high quality video available, and the footage likely won’t be officially released for a while, but we’ve managed to find a leaked copy, which »

Origins stories are a necessary evil. Many feel that the most famous comic book conceptions don’t require retellings, but with DC’s 2011 reboot shifting the universe in a big way, it was time to dust off the Batman alpha and dive into his first adventures. After two stellar storylines, The Court of Owls and Death of the Family, as part of the New 52, writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo were tasked with crafting another origin, but rather than a generic rehash, they offer one of the most complex, personal and engaging Batman tales in years. As Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One tackled the issues of the time, this twelve-issue event incorporates modern themes and fears — terrorism, climate change, random violence, cataclysmic events, identity crises. Separated into three parts, Zero Year is less about mobsters and corruption and more about exploring the man behind the pointy mask, who »
