A new poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For in lieu of the films appearance at Comic-Con this year. Not only will the much anticipated blockbuster release have a panel in Hall H, but many of the classic cars featured in A Dame to Kill For will be on display at PETCO Park throughout SDCC. The cast and filmmakers will also make have two signings for fans before and after the panel. Find out more details after the break.
We’re almost a month away from the release of A Dame to Kill For and my anticipation couldn’t be any higher. Although I have my own reservations for the sequel – as it has been almost ten years since the original Sin City and it still remains my favorite movie to indulge frequently – the trailers have provided much hope that this will succeed.
In the same vein of the original Sin City‘s poster design, this new one has a bit more traffic. Eva Green’s shadow takes up about a quarter of the art and the tag line minimizes the actors included within. It’s kind of cool to see Bruce Willis front and center on the original and Jessica Alba featured in front in the new one. I would like to think that was intentional for story purposes. It’s funny that Rosario Dawson got stuck to the back left again too. Too Bad Clive Owen and Josh Brolin aren’t in the same position though. Which poster do you like better?
