A big new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For red band trailer has been released, providing an almost 3-and-a-half-minute look at the upcoming sequel. Women, beheadings and leather seem to be the order of the day here, no doubt ticking off the right boxes for fans of Frank Miller’s noir world. Miller himself appears at the begging of the trailer, as a guy who’s been shot in the gut. It’s cool to have Miller do another cameo (he played a priest in Robert Rodriguez’s 2005 Sin City), but it’s clear that he shouldn’t quit his day job. This looks like a pretty solid follow-up to the first film; hopefully the almost ten-year wait has been worth it.
Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Eva Green, Josh Brolin, Bruce Willis, Powers Boothe, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner.
