"I really held back the first time, because I didn’t know whether audiences would go for it, " said director Robert Rodriguez about 2005's Sin City back in the spring of 2012, but he admitted that things would change for the sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. "This one is going to push way further towards the books. It’s going to shock and surprise people."
It may be too early to tell whether Rodriguez has pulled off his promise, but the look of the first trailer for A Dame to Kill For picks up right where the original left off, utilizing stark black-and-white photography with the occasional color flourish as it depicts a city of ill intent and questionable morals. Mickey Rourke is back as the tough and grizzled Marv and Jessica Alba returns as the stripper with a heart of gold Nancy Callahan, who has revenge on her mind over the death of her guardian angel, John Hartigan (Bruce Willis). New characters are included in the trailer as well, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a down-on-his-luck gambler named Johnny, Ray Liotta as the gun-toting Joey and Eva Green as the titular character Ava Lord.
