The sequel to 2005’s Sin City is coming, but when Sin City: A Dame To Kill For opens on Aug. 22, it will be with a different poster than the one the studio submitted to the Motion Picture Association of America, because the trade group just rejected that image for being too sexy!
The poster in question, seen here, depicts Eva Green in character as femme fatale Ava Lord, the titular dame. The MPAA took one look and clutched its collective pearls over “nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown,” according to gossip site Page Six. (Don’t enlarge image if you’re in a NSFW environment.)
So how’s that for free publicity, eh? “Too sexy!” “Nudity!” “Nipples!” “Banned for being too hot!” Yeah, that ought to hit the target audience right where it lives. There oughta be a little something extra in the pay envelopes for the boys in marketing on this one, wouldn’t you think?
In addition to Green, the cast includes Mickey Rourke back as Marv, Jessica Alba reprising Nancy Callahan, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Rosario Dawson as Gail, Jaime King as Goldie/Wendy, Dennis Haysbert as Manute, Christopher Meloni as Mort, Jeremy Piven as Bob, Stacy Keach as Wallenquist, Ray Liotta as Joey, Juno Temple as Sally, Julia Garner as Marcy, Josh Brolin as Dwight, and Jamie Chung taking over for Devon Aoki as Miho.
Check out the first trailer for the flick.
