This time, he has dragged Joseph Gordon-Levitt into the depths with him. “It’s sort of a story about the worst in us as humans,” the actor says with a nervous laugh.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of a few new additions to the Sin City universe in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s long-in-the-works sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. And since it’s a universe that’s particularly affected by the forces of entropic decay, his character doesn’t exactly get off easy.

He plays Johnny, a gambler whose good fortune takes a turn for the worse after he beats the wrong guy at the table. Check out Gordon-Levitt in this exclusive poster for the film, one of six, looking all badass and photo-negative.

The sinners are back and out for revenge in the first teaser trailer for Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

The moody trailer features the original’s signature dry, dark humor, Jessica Alba’s Nancy Callahan slamming her forehead into a mirror, Josh Brolin’s Dwight McCarthy tearing down the road, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s hard-luck gambler Johnny bloodied and screaming, and Eva Green’s Ava Lord shooting without pause — all framed by Mickey Rourke’s Marv growling “It’s just another Saturday night” (also the title of one of the tales). For fans of the first film, the teaser is a treasure trove of clues for Miller’s four vignettes — two of which are completely new stories.

Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt sin again in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

Legendary graphic novelist Frank Miller’s super-stylized gang of strippers and scoundrels is back on the big screen for four tales of pulpy intrigue in the 3-D neo-noir sequel Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (out Aug. 22).

Jessica Alba’s Nancy Callahan is still dancing at Kadie’s, but she’s changed since John Hartigan’s (Bruce Willis) death in the original 2005 cult classic. “She’s out for revenge,” says Miller, who co-directed the film. “She is sick of being treated — as she puts it — ‘as a piece of ass.'” Robert Rodriguez, who also returns to co-helm the project, adds: “You see a little girl in that first film. By the end of this, she’s the avenging angel.” Alba’s acting work has taken a backseat to other endeavors in the past few years, but Miller assures us that she is “eight times the actor [that she was] when I did the first film.”

Road to Sundance: Joseph Gordon-Levitt was the 'Don' of the festival -- VIDEO

Every Monday until the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, EW is celebrating a great success story from independent film’s most prestigious showcase. So far, we’ve revisited Lee Daniel’s Precious , Courtney Hunt’s Frozen River, Greg Mottola’s Adventureland, Today, we look back at Don Jon, the 2013 film from Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

The Sundance Film Festival is the place first-time directors aspire to go in order to be discovered. But sometimes, a rookie filmmaker arrives in Utah with a certain amount of fame already to his credit. Take Joseph Gordon-Levitt, for example, who premiered his first feature, then-titled Don Jon’s Addiction, at the 2013 festival. If his name wasn’t enough — as director and star — the movie also featured Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore; so even though it was “independent” in scale, it wasn’t exactly a make-or-break venture by some guy living out of his car.

But in other ways, Don Jon (as it was renamed for its theatrical release) was the epitome of what Sundance is all about. Gordon-Levitt, for all his success, is a Sundance kid. Not only did he launch his hitRECord website at the festival in 2010, but he played the boyhood version of Robert Redford’s narrator in A River Runs Through It. Since then, he’s been a major Sundance player, starring in festival movies like Mysterious Skin, Brick, and (500) Days of Summer. Throw in the film’s provocative subject matter — porn addiction — and Don Jon was as “Sundance” as any movie in recent memory.

In our clip from Sundance below, Gordon-Levitt and co-star Tony Danza discuss their characters and how media shape our obsessions. READ FULL STORY
