What: “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”
Cast: Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Jaime King, Ray Liotta, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis
Writer: Frank Miller
Directors: Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller
The story: Marv (Rourke), Nancy Callahan (Alba), John Hartigan (Willis) and others return to Kadie’s Club Pecos in four new installments that serve as both prequels and sequels to “Sin City.”
The buzz: “Sin City” was a critical and fan favorite, but that was all the way back in 2005. It will be interesting to see whether the nine-year break has heightened or dampened enthusiasm for this one.
