This weekend we’ll see one long-delayed sequel to a Frank Miller adaptation (well, technically sidequel) arrive in theaters and come this August will be the return of another that’s taken awhile to get to screens. Robert Rodriguez‘s Sin City arrived in 2005 and racked up an impressive $150 million-plus worldwide gross; now, 9 years later, with much of the returning cast, we have our first trailer for the sequel.
Starring Josh Brolin, Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Michael Madsen, Rosario Dawson, Jamie King, Ray Liotta, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Dennis Haysbert, Julia Garner, and Juno Temple, this preview packs the same black-and-white punch the first carried. Introducing a batch of new characters, we’ll see if the audience is still there this summer and one can check it out below.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For arrives on August 22nd, 2014.
What do you think of the first look at footage?
