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.

With Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Jamie Chung, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Julia Garner, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Jeremy Piven and Stacey Keach all on board, there's certainly no lacking in star power, and with fresh stories penned for the big screen, even diehard Miller fans will find something new here, though the technique is the same. The question is whether or not this will feel new or like something we saw way back in the day.

Take a look and let us know below. 'A Dame To Kill For' arrives on August 22nd.

    I guess we know an early contender in the Playlist "craziest/etc." comments of 2014, the 15 Rob Conundrum.

    Oh c'mon, this was a "ROB" only section man.

  • Rob | March 7, 2014 12:45 AMReply

    I always imagined while reading the books that Sin City looked pulpy and very film-like, very much in the style of Robert Krasker's B&W cinematography, not super sharp and plastic.

  • Rob | March 7, 2014 11:49 AM

    indeed. i was pretty underwhelmed by the art direction. i would have preferred a fleshing out of the Marv storyline into an entire film. less glossy, more 70's NY or Chicago vibe.

    Rodriguez shoots relatively fast and its in post production now and won't see release until August so I'm assuming the effects and all that are being worked on now. And who cares what music they use on the trailer, its not the film.

  • E | March 10, 2014 2:38 PM

    Um, I care, that's the first thing I looked up after watching the trailer. Lots of people discover new music through trailers.

  • ROB | March 6, 2014 8:20 PMReply

    Meh. (I am not any of the previous Robs.)

  • ROB | March 6, 2014 6:36 PMReply

    No escaping Dub Step, not even in Sin City.

  • ROB | March 6, 2014 6:27 PMReply

    Hey guys, I just wanted to say that the title is not that.... oh, never mind.

  • ROB | March 6, 2014 5:42 PMReply

    Interesting to note that Mickey Rourke's career is basically back where it was when he made the first Sin City.

  • ROB | March 6, 2014 5:43 PM

    Are you sure?

  • ROB | March 6, 2014 5:43 PM

    Whoa! Look at all the Robs! This is a different Rob from the ones below, btw.

  • ROB | March 6, 2014 5:40 PMReply

    I think it looks good!

  • ROB | March 6, 2014 5:40 PM

    You would.

  • ROB | March 6, 2014 5:40 PMReply

    Looks a little on the cheap side, no? Like Brolin falling out the window... c'mon.

  • Rob | March 7, 2014 1:34 AM

    I doubt this is going to be the finished look of the film. They're still in post-production, it's not coming out for another 5+ months. Teaser trailers for The Dark Knight Rises and Amazing Spiderman 2 looked a little rough and the VFX improved for the actual release.

    The visual style here is just like the original Sin City, a very pulp graphic novel look.

  • Rob | March 6, 2014 5:33 PMReply

    feel like this movie is coming out a few years too late. plus, frank miller behind the director's chair again does not bode too well.

  • Rob | March 7, 2014 1:12 AM

    Frank Miller was credited as co-director along with Robert Rodriguez for the first Sin City, too. I bet it's the same thing this time, and Rodriguez is actually directing this.

  • ROB | March 6, 2014 4:39 PMReply

    Three Robs? I like where this is going.

  • Rob | March 6, 2014 4:01 PMReply

    I don't get what's so awkward about the title either.

  • Rob | March 6, 2014 4:02 PM

    And this is a different Rob from the guy commenting below.

  • Rob | March 6, 2014 3:20 PMReply

    Why are you guys so hung up on that title? It's really not that awkward...
