Kim and Elizabeth's relationship came to an end on Sunday. During the What Happens at The Abbey episode, The Abbey squad took a trip to Las Vegas to host a pop-up event. And while everything was going well on their first night in Sin City, things took a turn when Elizabeth and Kim were in the hotel room pool together. The two were joking around wrestling when Elizabeth dunked Kim under the water, which was not Ok with Kim. "Wow, we're over," Kim told Elizabeth after the incident. "We're done." Kim said in her confessional, "I like horsing around, I like having fun, but hold my head under water…you take it too far." After telling Elizabeth they're over, »
Long before Brett Eldredge was collecting No. 1 hit songs and being honored with a plaque for peeing on the wall of his record label’s building back in college, the “Somethin’ I’m Good At” singer was hitting the pavement in Las Vegas, playing for whomever would listen.
“Before I signed my first record deal, I was a house band in Vegas,” the singer, 31, tells People of his time in Sin City in 2010. “I was at the Mandalay Bay in the lobby. It was me and my bass player — who’s still in my band to this day — and I »

Gambling and the movies have enjoyed a continuing relationship over the years. In the last three decades alone, the motion picture business has seen gambling and casinos play a huge part, not only in location settings, but as a huge part of the story. In this article, we thought we’d take a look at the films that have had their story influenced by gambling and had the narrative affected as a result.
The first film on our list is Rain Man, Barry Levinson’s 1988 Oscar-winner starring Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman where the two played the long lost Babbett brothers who are united after their father passes away, leaving the family’s fortune to elder sibling Raymond (Hoffman), an autistic savant. Charlie Babbett (Tom Cruise), who wasn’t even aware of his brother’s existence, and has only been left his father’s old car in his will. Learning »

As Jerry on NBC’s “Parks & Recreation,” Jim O’Heir was the butt of every joke, a lumpen Midwesterner who absorbed ridicule with a genial earnestness that only invited more of it. If Jerry had a dark side, the show never saw fit to explore it. The dark indie comedy “Middle Man” again casts O’Heir as a pitiable figure, shifting small towns from the fictional Pawnee, Ind., to Peoria, Ill., but otherwise keeping the “Kick me” sign pinned to his back. It’s a smart strategy for writer-director Ned Crowley to coax O’Heir into discovering a more sinister side of himself and the world, adding an extra dimension to an actor known for playing the same note to hilarious effect. Yet Crowley’s thinly conceived debut feature only has one big joke, and everything around it is either long-winded setup or deflating letdown.
The joke is a winner, »

When you’re talking about one of the most beautiful women out there, Jessica Alba is usually in the conversation. So to pick out a time where she looked her absolute best in a film is a tough challenge. However, once I looked back into her film library it hit me like a ton of bricks and the answer was completely obvious. You needn’t look further than the movie Sin City to see Jessica Alba looking her best. And it’s not because she’s an exotic dancer (although that certainly doesn’t hurt). It’s because of who her character is. It’s because of

Deadline is reporting that The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films, owned by the Weinstein Brothers, are developing Sin City for television. Writer Glen Mazzara, who's credits include The Shield and The Walking Dead is the showrunner with Len Wiseman, director of Underworld and producer of television shows such as Lucifer and Sleepy Hollow, set to produce. According to the article, the show is set to be a departure from the films, introducing new characters and storylines to the Sin City mythos.
The original Sin City, directed by legendary film director Robert Rodriguez, was a tour de force. While tackling some of the same material Rodriguez used in previous films, visually it was nothing like he ever did before. It was the closest we will probably ever see a movie that films a comic book panel for panel. The sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, was good but lacked »

"...'Basin City', aka 'Sin City' in the American west, is hot and arid. A major river runs through the city, which has an extensive waterfront.
"Usually twice a year, a major downpour comes, and the city is prone to heavy snowfall in the winter. Desert lizards and palm trees are common, while tar pits, desert areas, mountain »

Announced a couple of weeks ago, it seems as though the sequel to Edge of Tomorrow – Live Die Repeat and Repeat – will conclude the franchise. “I think what people tend to do with sequels is they just make them bigger,” Doug Liman said. “I see this as a two-movie franchise; there’s the completion of the story we set up in the first movie and the relationships between Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt—because, remember, at the end of the first movie, she doesn’t know who he »

Networks hungry for old IP seem to think so. Deadline reports that suitors are lining up for a Sin City television adaptation, one that would introduce new characters in that universe.
No network is officially on board yet, but it can only be a matter of time. It's easy to imagine this being a big blockbuster of a show.

“Sin City” has always been a bit of a strange case. The first film, released in 2005, was a big hit. Audiences loved the stylized aesthetic that brought the frames of Frank Miller‘s comic to vivid life, with the help of Robert Rodriguez‘s clever use of green screen, which gave everything an extremely heightened, noir look. However, interest in that style quickly dropped off. When Miller ventured on his own and directed “The Spirit” in 2008, the result missed with critics and audiences, and when “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” dropped in 2014, it played like almost a creaky relic from another time.
