If you weren’t feeling old this week, wrap your head around this: Sin City was released nine years ago. Since then, we’ve gotten an entire Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy, three Spider-Man films, four X-Men flicks and nine movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So yeah, comic book movies have come a long way since Robert Rodriguez’s adaptation of the iconic Frank Miller comic book series.
The anticipated Sin City sequel, A Dame to Kill for, hits U.S. theaters August 22, and the new trailer for the hard-boiled anthology film shows that Rodriguez and Miller haven’t lost their mutual lust for guns, girls, explosions and grit. Lots of grit.
The all-star cast includes such returning Sin City stars as Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Powers Boothe, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, and brings such luminaries as Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Josh Brolin — Thanos himself — into the monochromatic fold.
Check out the latest trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill for below.
