"That there is a dame to kill for." If there is a movie perfect for Comic-Con it's Sin City, adapted from Frank Miller's beloved graphic novel by genre mastermind Robert Rodriguez. Among the many promotions at Comic-Con 2014 is the "Sin City Experience" connected to the upcoming sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which finally hits theaters this August after being delayed for years. The experience features a background skyline display, DJ booth, giveaways but most importantly - a selection of six classic cars from the movie. We stopped by early on to snap a few photos of the sleek vintage vehicles parked in San Diego.
Here are the cars on display near Petco Park. The cars include a 1985 Dodge Diplomat, 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air, 1960 Chevy Corvette, 1959 Cadillac El Dorado, 1964 Ford Mustang convertible, 1949 Cadillac Sedanette.
Below - this is the 2015 Dodge vehicle hooked up to TV screens for fans to play a 1-minute driving game.
That's all they had at the display aside from the game and giveaways including posters/shirts for the movie.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez who co-wrote the script with William Monahan (The Departed) and Frank Miller, creator of the graphic novel series and co-director of the first film. Dwight (Josh Brolin) is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to "The Big Fat Kill" (seen in the first Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. Jessica Alba, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mickey Rourke, Juno Temple, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson and many others star in the film being shot in 3D and Dimension Films will send the sequel to theaters on August 22nd this summer.
