Watch: New TV Spot for Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

21 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Later this week, Dimension Films will show off some of the goods from Sin City: A Dame to Kill for at Comic-Con with a panel in Hall H on July 26th with Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller and actors Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin and Rosario Dawson in attendance. But in the meantime, a new TV spot for the graphic novel follow-up has arrived, and it's basically a very condensed version of what we saw in the full theatrical trailer. The film looks gorgeous, and we can't wait to see what Miller and Rodriguez have done with their return to this seedy, grimy film noir tale. Eva Green really does seem like a dame to kill for. The TV spot for Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (via ComingSoon): Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez who co-wrote the »

Miller & Rodriguez's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Gets a Final Poster

16 July 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There Is No Justice Without Sin. Dimension Films has unveiled the full poster for Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, starring a huge cast including Eva Green as the "dame to kill for" Ava Lord, along with Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Juno Temple and Powers Boothe as Senator Roark. We've seen plenty of trailers before, and the film will get its own panel at Comic-Con, so expect to hear more buzz then. Oddly, this poster features Jessica Alba as Nancy front and center, but looking like she's an undead Beetlejuice-esque Nancy in a studded-leather jacket (MPAA-approved!) with a glowing door randomly put in Rourke's crotch. Here's the new poster for Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For from IMDb: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez »

Dennis Lehane Gets The Drop on Us

8 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr explores the cinematic adaptations of Dennis Lehane’s work…

‘I have no desire to operate on my own children’

Dennis Lehane explains why he is against adapting his own books.

Best-selling author, Boston native and screenwriter Dennis Lehane has been accused of a few things in life. For instance there are people convinced this author of hard edged thrillers wrote Mystic Pizza. That late eighties, tissue thin chick flick which helped launch Julia Roberts onto the world stage before Gary Marshall, Richard Gere and a Lotus finished the job. Dennis Lehane wrote Mystic River by the way, just to avoid any confusion.

Then there’s the small issue of his fan mail. Not all of it you understand, just the celebrity stuff he continues to receive for writing The Departed. You see his only problem is William Monahan wrote the book, adapted it into a screenplay and received the Oscar. »

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Gets New Quad Poster Across the Pond

23 June 2014 7:08 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though The Weinstein Company got some hype from the fact that their Eva Green character poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was deemed too sexy, a new banner from across the pond has surfaced showing off the characters who also got their own character posters earlier this year. But this time, they've also added Bruce Willis alongside cast members from the first film like Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson and new residents like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Josh Brolin. The most recent full-length trailer definitely took us back to the Sin City we remember, and it should be a darkly fun sequel. Here's the new quad poster from the United Kingdom for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For from Empire: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez who co-wrote the script with William Monahan (The Departed) and Frank Miller, creator »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Gets A Stylish New Trailer

11 June 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sin City’s where you go in with your eyes open,” says gambler Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) at the beginning of the latest trailer for August’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, “Or you don’t come out at all.” Our previous exposure to the stylized, hyper-violent universe of Sin City have definitely proven that to be the case – and I, for one, cannot wait to dive back in.

This new trailer gives us new footage of returning characters Marv (Mickey Rourke), Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba), Senator Roark (Powers Boothe), Manute (now played by Dennis Haysbert), Gail (Rosario Dawson) and Dwight (now played by Josh Brolin), in addition to new additions like Ava Lord (Eva Green). It’s a sexy, thrilling look at what’s sure to be one of the coolest and best movies of the summer.

“Never lose control, never get the monster out,” says Dwight at »

16 Sequels that Were Better than the First Movie

9 June 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In today's world of studio movie making, let's face it, it's all about franchising. It's all about the sequels. In fact, this weekend we have two sequels hitting theaters in 22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2. The first is a comedy sequel and it's receiving great reviews, despite the fact comedies rarely have good sequels. The second has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of the summer and perhaps the biggest animated movie of 2014. Whyc Sequels sell and if they're good they sell even more. That said, last week I started considering the sequels that were actually better than the original film in any given franchise. This isn't a question of what are the best sequelsc (I've already made that list.) Instead, what sequels managed to exceed the quality and entertainment of the film(s) that came before them. In this sense I have »

Weinsteins' Spark Buzz with Sexy MPAA Banned 'Sin City 2' Poster

29 May 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just a little over a week ago, we got a look at five new character posters for the sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. However, what we didn't see was a poster featuring the titular woman played by Eva Green, and now we know why. Page Six just debuted a new poster featuring the actress, but it was deemed to be too sexy for a sanctioned release by the MPAA “for nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.” Clearly this is just The Weinstein Company trying to stir up some controversy to get some buzz around their late summer release, but you can't deny that's a damn sexy poster. Look now! Here's the sexy, unapproved poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For from Page Six: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez who co-wrote »

Second 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Trailer is Shorter But Still Sexy

23 April 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

When the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theaters in August, it will have been nearly 10 years since the first graphic novel adaptation hit theaters. It remains to be seen if there's still an audience eager for more of Frank Miller's seedy, stylized film noir, but with an impressive cast that posts Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Mickey Rourke, Ray Liotta, Rosario Dawson, Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba and many more, there should be some interest at least. Now to hype things up we have a shorter trailer for the sequel, which is like a condensed version of the original teaser from last month. Watch below! Here's a shorter trailer for Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For direct from Dimension: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez who co-wrote the script with William Monahan (The Departed) and Frank Miller, »

Zac Efron Is Grisham's "The Associate"

2 April 2014 9:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Zac Efron is attached to both star in and produce an adaptation of John Grisham's legal thriller "The Associate" for Red Wagon.

The story follows a student who's about to graduate from Yale Law School when he's manipulated into accepting a job at a prestige law firm and given privileged information about a multibillion-dollar lawsuit between two powerful defense contractors.

William Monahan penned the original draft adaptation back when Shia Labeouf and director Tony Scott were attached. That version fell through due to monetary issues. Another attempt was made two years ago with Andrew Garfield sought to star.

Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher will also produce the new version which is starting over. A new writer is expected to be hired shortly.

Zac Efron Will Star in and Produce John Grisham's 'The Associate'

2 April 2014 5:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly six years after it was first set up at Paramount Pictures, the adaptation of John Grisham's 2009 novel The Associate has found new life, with Zac Efron coming on board to star and produce.

Shia Labeouf was originally attached to star back in 2008, with director Tony Scott circling the project in 2010. William Monahan (The Departed) previously worked on the script, but Red Wagon Entertainment is currently seeking writers before bringing the project to the studios.

The story centers on a young Yale Law School graduate (Zac Efron) who is blackmailed by a group of criminals and forced to take a job at the world's largest law firm. He must spy on their work in settling a contract dispute between two of the world's biggest defense contractors worth billions of dollars.

Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher, who are both behind the young adult novel adaptation Divergent, are producing through their Red Wagon Entertainment company. »

Zac Efron to Lead & Produce Adaptation of Grisham's 'The Associate'

2 April 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

An adaptation of John Grisham's 2009 legal thriller The Associate has been in the works since before the book was even published. Back in 2008, Shia Labeouf was attached to lead the project with The Departed scribed William Monahan slated to script and the late director Tony Scott once flirting with getting behind the camera. Now it appears development has started all over with Divergent producers Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher throwing their weight behind the film, not to mention Zac Efron producing through his Ninjas Runnin' Wild banner (fresh off That Awkward Moment) and also stepping up for the vacant lead.  For those who haven't read the book, it follows a student (Efron) who's about to graduate from Yale Law School when he's manipulated into accepting a job at a prestigious law firm and given privileged information about a multibillion-dollar lawsuit. THR says a writer still needs to be found though, »
