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.”

Rodriguez and Miller are currently filming in Austin for an October 4 release. [Deadline]

David Cronenberg (A Dangerous Method) is teaming up with Don DeLillo again for the The Body Artist, DeLillo’s dreamy 2001 novel about the ordinariness of everyday life….and ghosts. Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) is set to direct, though, and Cronenberg will actually step in front of the camera to star in the film alongside Isabelle Huppert (Amour) and Denis Lavant (Beau Travail, Holy Motors). Cronenberg recently directed an adaptation of DeLillo’s novel Cosmopolis. Even though he’s best known for his directing work, Cronenberg has acted in a handful of projects including some of his own (The Fly, Videodrome) and for some others too (Alias, To Die For). [Variety]
