Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
When Robert Rodriguez’s original "Sin City" was released in 2005, the VFX-heavy neo-noir felt genuinely groundbreaking —a comic book adaptation so faithful to the source material and its striking visuals that the comic's creator Frank Miller received a co-directing credit. Rodriguez and Miller didn't so much translate sequences as much as they cut and pasted arresting tableaus straight from the graphic novel. The dialogue encompassed the same hard-boiled monologues and staccato delivery; only word bubbles were missing. But as stringently loyal as it was (much of that dialogue being clunky), the film was outstanding visually, like nothing seen before on screen.

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
“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.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
Jessica Alba is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly this week (hello!) and while her skimpy bikini look has nothing to do with the black-and-white, contrasty-looking photography of Robert Rodriguez’s “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For,” we suppose it was a “sex-sells” decision. Alba on the cover means pimping the movie and that means promo material of some kind. So that means five new character posters from the film featuring Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Adèle Exarchopoulos
Despite roles in blockbusters like “Prometheus,” “Thor” and “Pacific Rim,” Idris Elba still hasn’t had that one role that would catapult him into a household name—sorry, “The Wire” doesn’t count—but he’ll be getting his shot at the spotlight with the previously-announced action vehicle “Bastille Day.”

There are few filmmakers whose work is as instantly recognizable as Darren Aronofsky's. His subject matter has differed wildly, from Kabbalistic mathematical conspiracies to drug addiction to high-class ballet to Biblical apocalypse in this weekend's "Noah." But his heart-on-its-sleeve, unsubtle (that's not a knock, necessarily), highly cinematic, uniquely stylized films couldn't possibly be mistaken for anyone else's, even as their content proves ever-surprising.

Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
Eight years after audiences first visited the monochrome, rain slicked, bullet filled streets of "Sin City," are they ready to go there again? Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller certainly hope so, with talk of a TV series and "Sin City 3" already percolating. But to get there, the awkwardly titled "Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" will need to make some major waves, and the first trailer is here to entice with more pulpy adventures.

Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
Yep, "Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" is the absurd mouthful that is the new title for "Sin City: Dame To Kill For," reminding you just who exactly penned the pulpy tales that will continue in Robert Rodriguez's sequel. Originally slated to drop last year, the ever-busy director pushed things back to give himself more breathing room to get it done, but with the movie coming this summer we're about to see a lot more.

Movie Stars /Career Resurrections
This week “The Dallas Buyers Club” opens (you can read our review here), and it features a riveting, committed, physically gruelling and very likely-to-be-Oscar-nominated performance by Matthew McConaughey. If he is nominated, however, McConaughey will be at least a little in debt to the buzz that’s surrounded him of late as the newest member of what we could call the Comeback Club—that rarefied group of people who have, sometimes on a dime, turned their movie careers around and breathed new life into what was once moribund. It takes a great deal of luck to pull off this trickiest of acts, and for every actor who’s managed to hang onto their newly regained spot on top of the pile for a few years, there are ten who’ve briefly clambered all the way up only to topple off again a moment later.
