SIN CITY 2 Gets Official Release Date

It's been over 7 years since Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez brought Miller's graphic novel "Sin City" to the big screen. Since that time there has been a lot of talk about returning to do another installment but very little actual movement. Even the most die hard of fans had grown pessimistic and doubtful that a "Sin City 2" would ever actually come to fruition.

That's all changed!

Dimension Films announced today that the sequel "Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" will be back in theaters on October 4th 2013.

At this point Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba have been confirmed to return to their roles and more of the original cast are expected to reprise their characters from the original as well. On top of the returning cast the studio says "the remaining cast will be announced shortly with some big names expected to fill the roles of Sin City's newest characters yet to be seen in theaters."

I personally loved the original "Sin City", but not for the same reason that a lot of other fans did. Yes the visual style at the time was unique and bold and the over the top violence was a lot of fun… but for me the the brilliance of "Sin City" lay within the idea of the redemptive and captivating power of beauty in the world.

Each one of the three main characters played by Clive Owen, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis lived in a horrible, dark rotting world and each have seen/seen terrible things… but for each of them the smallest, slightest hints of beauty in the world motivated and drove them to extreme lengths. The innocence of a child, the legitimate affection in the arms of a prostitute… no matter how small or slight, the power of beauty in the world can drive a man, and "Sin City" illustrates that in a dark and profound way.

But let us know what YOU think. Did you enjoy the first "Sin City"? Are you excited for another installment? Which other cast members not already confirmed do you think are the most important to bring back?

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
