The first Sin City came out in 2005, and after years of false starts, we’re finally approaching the release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
If you’re confused how Marv (Mickey Rourke) could be back for this film as he was executed in the first film, I promise it’s not some odd comic book trick. He isn’t back from the dead, it’s just the nature of how Frank Miller constructed the Sin City stories. You will find they intersect at different points and run concurrently in some cases, so characters that have died can show up in later stories, giving you some sense of when it takes place in the overall mythos.
This film will cover the A Dame to Kill For storyline, as well as the short story, ”Just Another Saturday Night” from Booze, Broads & Bullets. Miller also created two entirely new stories for the film, one of them being the storyline with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theaters on Aug. 22.
