With the "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" controversy over Eva Green and her boobs now ended, the focus is turning back to the movie itself. Last week, we got a brand new trailer, and today comes the first clip, and together, they make the case that the second time around may not be as fun or inviting as the original "Sin City" nine years ago.

With the "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" controversy over Eva Green and her boobs now ended, the focus is turning back to the movie itself. Last week, we got a brand new trailer, and today comes the first clip, and together, they make the case that the second time around may not be as fun or inviting as the original "Sin City" nine years ago.

This first scene from the movie centers on Rosario Dawson's dangerous and sexy Gail, who basically grinds up against a car, sweet talks a brute into some potential sexy times, but has a nasty surprise waiting in the trunk. So yeah, standard stuff from the mill of Frank Miller. Perhaps it's just the fact of being out of context, but the aesthetic doesn't seem to quite work here, or mostly, it just doesn't feel as fresh. Or maybe we're just distracted by whatever that drawl is that Dawson is laying on pretty thickly.

"Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" drops on August 22nd. Watch below. [Comic Book Movie]
