One of the most anticipated films in recent years, for some people at least, has finally released its first trailer. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has been in the making for a long time, and the sequel to Sin City will come 9 years after the original film.
In 2005, Sin City introduced audiences to an action packed neo-noir thriller that boasted an ensemble cast with plenty of talented actors that people were familiar with, and a few that have become much more popular since the film’s release. After years of waiting, the corrupt and violent characters from the first film are back for more, and are ready to seek revenge.
Several big stars such as Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Rosario Dawson will return from the original film. The sequel has added a ton of new people as well, and the long list of stars includes people such as Joseph Gordon Levitt, Josh Brolin, Jeremy Piven and Ray Liotta.
The film was shot in black and white, and the sequel will be as well, which gives people a bit of a comic book type of an environment. The films are also based on a series of graphic novels written by Frank Miller. Miller is also the screenwriter for the film, and co-director, along with Robert Rodriguez.

Director Robert Rodriguez is known for collaborating with fan favorite Quentin Tarantino on multiple projects, while he was also responsible for the Desperado trilogy, and the Spy Kids films.
Rodriguez recently spoke about the film after some early photos were released and said “There’s something about the way Sin City works that I thought would lend itself very well to 3-D because the images are so stripped down and abstract…you almost can see it better in 3-D.”
At the time, fans were given a first look at photos revealing a new character that will be played by Joseph Gordon Levitt named Johnny, a gambler, in addition to the old favorites portrayed by Jessica Alba and Bruce Willis.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will also be told in four different segments, much like a comic book would, and displaying a creative film-making technique that Rodriguez has utilized before.
The long overdue sequel to the 2005 cult hit Sin City will finally be released to theaters on August 22, 2014.
