The highly stylized noir graphic novel is getting a second shot at the box office. The original 2005 ‘Sin City’ was stunning in its jump from page to screen; Frank Miller’s source material never looked better. For the sequel he and Robert Rodriguez bring us back to Basin City and crank up everything. The look is just as stunning. Here’s all they are saying so far about this one:
“Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories, with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants.”
They’ve, of course, brought back some of the fan favorite characters from the original and thrown in a ton of new talent. As with the first, I just can’t get over how beautiful the film looks. Dark and violent yet soft and intriguing.
August is going to be a busy theater month for me. This is slated to drop on the world towards the end of August this year. Between now and then I know we will see tons of vignettes not to mention what comes out of San Diego Comic Con.
