Penny Dreadful
With his Oscar contender "Big Eyes" starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz coming soon, those who prefer Burton's more whimsical movies shouldn't worry. Early next year he's gearing up an adaptation of Ranson Riggs’ “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” and he's got his eye on a former collaborator for a role.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
Some filmmakers you can count on being at Comic-Con every year no matter what, and Robert Rodriguez is one of them. In fact, check out this interesting fact. Warner Bros. and D.C. used two hours of Hall H Comic-Con time to promote three films and probably a handful of other projects. In contrast, Dimension Films is using an entire hour for one film and one film only, “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” (sorry I refuse to put Frank Miller’s name in the title as that’s just needlessly long, at least Lee Daniels legally had to). If there’s a studio or a filmmaker who loves and lives and dies by his Comic-Con crowd, Rodriguez is certainly close to the top and today, the trailer unspooled in San Diego has landed online.

Sin City A Dame To Kill For
Among the big high-profile comic book sequels of the year ("Captain America," "The Amazing Spider-Man" et al.), there's one that's been a little more under the radar: "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's sequel to their 2005 green-screen noir. But the marketing campaign is starting to gear up in a big way, with the film's release only a couple of months away, and hot on the heels of that 'controversial' poster (emphasis on the quotation marks, Mr. Weinstein), a new trailer has just landed for the movie.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
As you probably heard by now, "Sin City: Dame To Kill For" was recently caught up in a mini-controversy, when the prudes at the MPAA got all hot under the collar over the one sheet that centered on the curvaceous Eva Green. Lots of ink was spilled, Dimension Films got the free promo they wanted and life moved on, but for Green herself, she doesn't get what the MPAA got so worked up about in the first place, and she starts out by clearing up a misconception.

The Salvation
What happens when you put together Mads Mikkelsen and Eva Green in a western? Well, you capture our attention, that's for sure. And while our Jessica Kiang didn't quite fall for "The Salvation" at Cannes—calling it in her review a genre movie that's "so faithful as to veer dangerously close to pastiche"—it's still got enough intriguing ingredients to make it one the rest of us will catch up with anyway, if only to see Mikkelsen playing cowboy.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
The Weinstein Company (and their genre label Dimension) sure know how to exploit "negative" publicity. So when an alert lands in our mailbox about a poster for "Sin City: A Dame To Kill" for running foul of the MPAA, one has to wonder if the studio knew exactly what they were doing when submitting it in the first place. And in this case, we're pretty Harv and co. had a pretty good idea what would happen when this poster design went out the door.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
“Sex is absolutely what helps sell this movie, which is fine by me,” Jessica Alba told EW, and she's spot on about what's going to get audiences to buy tickets for this one. Oh sure, "Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" is a sequel to the groundbreaking hit "Sin City," but the movie also promises skin, sleaze and good old fashioned violence, and you can get a sense of all that with these new pics.

The Salvation
As much as we love the western genre, it appears Danish director Kristian Levring, (who was the fourth signatory of the Dogme95 movement, film history fans) loves it more. His "The Salvation," which plays in the Midnight Screenings section of Cannes, is a testament to that--a loving and in fact overly adulatory genre film which is not so much a take on the revenge Western as a deeply faithful recreation of it, at times so faithful as to veer dangerously close to pastiche.

The Salvation
Competition is obviously the most prestigious place to play during the Cannes Film Festival, but the riches of the fest is such that the sidebar sections often have terrific discoveries too. Two new first looks have arrived from two films playing outside competition. The first is Lisandro Alonso’s “Jauja” starring Viggo Mortensen. It’s playing in the Un Certain Regard section alongside films like Ryan Gosling’s debut “Lost River” and Ned Benson’s “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.”

The Salvation
The last time Mads Mikkelsen was at Cannes, he walked away with a Best Actor award for his turn in "The Hunt." Now two years later, he'll be back walking the red carpet on the Croisette, but in something a bit different. Instead of a Competition film, the actor will be hoping to thrill audiences in the Midnight Screening selection "The Salvation." And the first trailer is here.
