'Sin City' Sequel Switches the Title to 'Sin City: A Dame to Die For'?
Over the summer, Dimension Films pushed back Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's long expected sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For back to the new release date of August 22nd, 2014, which likely means we could get a glimpse of the film at Comic-Con 2014. However, between that news and the release of the film, there appears to have been a small change in the marketing of the film, specifically the title. A piece of promo art at the American Film Market was spotted that looks just like the poster we've already seen for the film, except the title now says Sin City: A Dame to Die For. It's a small change, but less aggressive.
Here's the new piece of promo art found at AFM thanks to Bloody Disgusting:
We're betting that some focus group testing made the title sound a little too abrasive and forward, whereas A Dame to Die For implies some sort of honor and protection. That's just speculation on our part, but it would make sense. So far we've only seen a first look photo of Josh Brolin on set and then touched up with the special effects that will be seen in the film. Otherwise, we're still waiting for some more photos for the film or some sort of teaser trailer. The cast is impressive with Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke returning along with new cast members like Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jeremy Piven and more. Stay tuned.

It's a pretty dumb change, but I'll see it none the less.

Sin Back to the City and i really cant wait! Mr.Rodriguez proves , he is NOT good director for making the sequels. In other hands , after making some UN-necessary sequels , at last he want make a definitely necessary sequel. I think he must trust more on Frank Miller. He must get more help from him. He has UNBELIEVABLE & UNIQUE VISION. mr.Rodriguez you had ENOUGH TIME to deliver ANOTHER MASTERPIECE... PLEASE DO NOT MAKE PERFUNCTORY WORK

So weird, I could have sworn the Mariachi trilogy would be evidence to the contrary....

i think desperado is apart from sequel to el mariachi. Are you saw el mariachi anyway? and in other hand you wana tell me , once upon in mexico is better than desperado as sequel?

1) What? 2) I think you prove my point by saying Desperado is a solid sequel to El Mariachi. Plus, are you factoring in the Spy Kids movies? As I recall, they were pretty enjoyable when I was a kid.

I didn't like Sin City so I am not excited regardless of name change

Dimension must fuck off with their focus groups and interference and let Robert and Frank do what they do best. The more studios interfere, the weaker the resulting film becomes.

I think the other one suits their style better, but this one sounds a little better phonetically. The focus group theory could be true, but I think the word 'kill', even in the title, would probably be one of the less objectionable things to do with the movie.

Of all the character's he's played, I still say Mickey Rourke was put on this planet to play Marv. Can't wait to see him back playing the role he was born to play!!!!

I loved Sin City and I was looking forward to a sequel for years. It's been so long now, I've completely lost interest. They can call it whatever they want now, I'll pass.
