‘Sin City 2’ Looks That Kill: Miho & Gail

When Sin City: A Dame To Kill For hits screens next month, the role of “deadly little Miho” will be played by Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch) because Devon Aoki, who played Miho in the original, was pregnant when production on the sequel began. Rosario Dawson, on the other hand, returns as Gail, the leader of the working girls of Old Town.

Also missing from the original cast: Michael Clarke Duncan and Brittany Murphy, who both passed away, and Michael Masden. Dennis Haysbert now plays Manute and Jeremy Piven is the new Bob.

No, not the Black Keys song — the new caper movie starring Jena Malone and Joe Montegna opening today, July 4.

Directed by Michael C. Martin, the cast also features Adam Arkin and Jessica Szohr.

‘Sin City 2’ Poster: A Retouch of Class

So now, this poster is perfectly appropriate for viewing by impressionable young children. Unlike the sure-to-be-R-rated movie itself.

I’m Too Sexy for Your Poster…

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.)

Dimension Films, which is distributing the film, confirmed to Deadline that the poster is “being reworked.”
