This looks superb - Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

June 29, 2014
The first film was near enough a masterclass in comic book-inspired cinematography. Using only slashes of colours, femme fatals and a heavy dose of violence, Sin City immediately became a modern-day cult hit for both the Facebook generation and older graphic novel lovers. Judging by the trailer for the sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For looks even better. With an adapted screenplay taken from Frank Miller's graphic novel, expect much the same in the way of hard-boiled citizens, shadowy pasts, grimy encounters and promiscuous characters. However, with a stronger storyline than the first, this may well be the better film. One thing that is guaranteed once again is a stellar cast. Take your pick of famous names from Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Josh Brolin, Ray Liotta and Jeremy Piven. While we're not usually fans of 3D films, in anticipating broken glass, bullets, clothes and pure adrenaline coming off the screen, A Dame to Kill For may well be the exception. Details: out August 2014.
