In an announcement that should surprise no one, mostly because nobody bothered to care in the first place, Dimension Films has quietly pushed back Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's blood-soaked sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," back nearly a year. Gone is its original October 3rd slot, and it will instead bow on August 22nd, 2014. For those of you really looking forward to a lot of shitty green screen and film noir-y dialogue more mumbled than spoken, this must come as a crushing blow.
Production of the film, which has been endlessly discussed since the original "Sin City" came out way back in 2005, only officially got underway earlier this year. Rodriguez posted a photo of himself working with Josh Brolin on the set of the movie (and by "set" I mean "giant green warehouse where the only prop is a steering wheel") back in February. Since then, things have been pretty quiet — if the movie was coming out in October as planned, woudln't we have seen a trailer by now? At least there's an explanation: it's not coming out for another year, bro.
The sequel will star Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson (meow!), Jaime King, Powers Boothe, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Eva Green (as the titular dame), Jamie Chung, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Julia Garner, Juno Temple, Ray Liotta, Christopher Meloni and Jeremy Piven. Most of these actors Rodriguez ropes in by telling that there will be minimal costumes and make-up and that they will be out in a few days, thanks to the wonders of digital technology.
While waiting for the "Sin City" sequel to come out, you can always watch Miller's solo directorial debut "The Spirit." Just kidding. That was terrible.
