Box office preview: Will teen drama 'If I Stay' top 'Sin City' sequel?

It takes a special kind of sequel to be able to withstand a nine-year gap between releases, and unfortunately for Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, Sin City: A Dame to Kill for doesn’t appear to be up to the task. Instead, the YA adaptation If I Stay looks poised to take first place this weekend.

Here’s how things might play out.

'Hateful Eight' teaser to play in theaters before 'Sin City 2'

hateful-eight-poster

If you’re making a movie about a rugged 19th-century stagecoach adventure, you’re presumably familiar with the idiom “putting the cart before the horse.” But Quentin Tarantino has always operated outside convention. So it’s oddly appropriate that a teaser trailer for his next movie, The Hateful Eight—a film that doesn’t even go into production until early 2015—will debut in theaters next weekend before screenings of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Though The Weinstein Company—which is distributing both films—declined to comment, sources close to the production tell EW that reports of a theater-only teaser are correct. It’s an ingenious marketing gimmick, since the teaser will not officially be made available online. Hence, some passionate fans might buy tickets to see Sin City just to get a glimpse of what Tarantino is working on next.

But what exactly is there to see in that 100 or so seconds of video? Is it a Hitchcock-style promo, in which the auteur addresses the audience? Is it footage from the star-studded April live-read? Or has Tarantino been filming on the sly, at least a few scenes to warrant a brief tease? Unlikely. Slashfilm reports that viewers can expect a steady stream of title cards—no doubt with some evocative Morricone-esque music. READ FULL STORY

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' trailer too sexy for ABC

Sin-City-2-Eva-Green.jpg

First, Eva Green was too sexy in the poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Now she’s apparently too sexy in the movie’s trailer.

According to Page Six, which first reported the news, ABC felt that the white robe Green wears in the clip—making the actress appear nearly naked—was too sheer for TV. It’s a similar complaint to the one the MPAA made with Green’s poster image, in which she wears the same white robe. As a result, the poster was reworked.

It’s yet to be seen if Dimension Films will rework the footage to make the trailer more television-friendly. READ FULL STORY

Sin City, it seems, is a town full of antiheroes doing anti-heroic things and scantily clad women who are not operating at the highest level of morality, either.

Video: Jessica Alba gets a creepy makeover in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' clip

Jessica Alba is back as stripper Nancy Callahan in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But it appears as though Nancy’s been having a hard time since her mentor, John Hartigan (Bruce Willis), committed suicide in the last film. In the new clip, we see her in the bathroom talking to her reflection. “Maybe I’ll prove both you wrong,” she says. “Maybe I’ll go crazy. Crazy’s sounding pretty good right now.” She then proceeds to chop off all of her hair with a pair of scissors.

The next time we see her, she’s sitting in a restaurant booth loading a revolver and sporting a new haircut and cuts all over her face as Mickey Rourke’s Marv approaches her.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theaters on August 22.

'Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' trailer teases every story line -- VIDEO

Things are looking bleak for all of our antiheroes in the latest trailer for Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Co-directors Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez have been coy about the plot details so far — especially since two of the four stories are Miller originals, but now it seems they’re ready to tease specifics — including a ghost version of John Hartigan (Bruce Willis), who was killed off in the first film. Here, his presence seems to be driving Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) to vengeance (and madness). We also get a glimpse into Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s mysterious, cocky gambler Johnny and how things devolve quickly after he decides to challenge Senator Roark (Powers Boothe) to a game of cards.

It’s the most revealing trailer yet, and no, we’re not just talking about the scantily clad femmes fatales. READ FULL STORY

Eva Green is too hot for the MPAA: Studio reworking risque 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' poster

Sin-City-Eva-Green

Is Eva Green revealing a bit too much in her Sin City: A Dame to Kill For poster?

According to Deadline, a poster for the upcoming sequel featuring Eva Green wasn’t approved by the MPAA for “nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.” Though they declined to comment, Dimension Films did confirm to Deadline that the poster was being reworked prior to the film’s Aug. 22 opening. This process is nothing new for the MPAA, who meet with film executives to approve of all advertising materials prior to a film’s release and will offer any tweaks and suggestions to make any needed changes or at least a compromise. No matter the ultimate decision, all of the material is still open for the public’s view.Take a look at the full poster below and judge for yourself: READ FULL STORY

Forgive them, Father, for they have sinned… Nearly a decade after exploring the morally gray areas of the black-and-white metropolis of Sin City, Robert Rodriguez has returned with the sequel, A Dame To Kill For (out Aug. 22.) 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. In the video below, the pair sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss their tale of good guys gone bad. READ FULL STORY

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' poster: Joseph Gordon-Levitt tries his luck -- EXCLUSIVE

sin-city-poster

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.
