Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Director Robert Rodriguez has not just one, but two sequels, currently making their way towards production. Machete Kills brings back Danny Trejo as the most kick-ass Mexican we've ever seen, and after seven years of waiting, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is finally making waves to follow-up the stylistic 2005 graphic novel adaptation with an all-star cast. Now it sounds like there's some advance promotion kicking off for the films, likely because of Cannes kicking off this week, as two early teaser posters have surfaced online. There's not any stunning imagery, but it's a good tease for each sequel. Look!

Machete Kills has already firmed up most of the original cast including Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez along with a new villain played by Mel Gibson and some new ladies in the form of Amber Heard and Sofia Vergara. It promises to be a lot of fun, with the titular hero now working for the U.S. government and trying to prevent an all-out war from a deranged billionaire arms dealer (Gibson) and a cartel leader who plan to use a space weapon to spread terror across the world. Surely there will be much more ridiculous action and gratuitous violence and rampant nudity.

Meanwhile, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is just getting started. Rodriguez has said that he's spoken to Rosario Dawson and Mickey Rourke who are both excited to reprise their roles, and since the graphic novel of the same name features at least the characters played by Devon Aoki, Michael Clarke Duncan and Clive Owen as well, I'm betting they'll be back too. Of course, the sequel could easily use stories from other volumes of the graphic novels as well, which means there could be other returning characters, and also plenty of room for new big name cast members too. Stay tuned!

I found Machete to be quite dull and rather stupid. I really hope this one gets rid of the "Stereotypical mexican with the popsicle cart gags".

I'll see both, but Sin City is the one I'm actually looking.

This is kill year for Rodriguez (machete KILL/ sin city a dame to KILL for) If his films don't kill for real , he must be killed for real (don't scared mr.Rodriguez I was just kidding) But I believe to this equation : Machete Is DUMB / Sin City Is BOMB

I guess Jessica Alba will not have a big role in the Machete sequel, as her name isn't even on the poster. I'm really excited for both movies, but the Sin City poster is much cooler! I preferred the first teaser poster for Machete with just Danny Trejo's face in black and white!

I hope she doesn't. Can't stand Alba.

...and Mel Gibson. Oh that will be so awesome!  I really hope Clive Owen comes back, loved his character. So excited for both of these!

I used to like Rob back in the day with el mirachi and sin city. But he has just fallen off.

I must be the only person on the planet who is not excited for Machete Kills. The first movie felt like a waste. Mel Gibson sounds like a good choice, but damn.

That's funny, I always seem to be the only one who IS excited for it. I'd say you're in the majority my friend. Personally, I loved the first one, and am so excited for the next. Just ridiculous, gratuitous, violent fun. Exactly what it tries to be.

Ive been waiting for a Sin City sequel.. And Mel Gibson can make any crappy screen play watchable..
