‘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 One Expects the MPAA Inquisition!!

zerotoleranceRemember when the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) rejected that Sin City: A Dame To Kill For poster because someone could make out a little too much of Eva Green‘s breast through her robe? Well, the censorship board trade panel has taken affront to a poster that shows too much all of Oscar-winning actor Christoph Waltz‘s rear end.

The poster teases the latest flick by director and sh!t-stirrer Terry GilliamMonty Python animator and auteur of such movie masterpieces as Brazil and 12 Monkeys (and the highly underrated The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) — and it’s called The Zero Theorem.

If you enlarge the above photo, you will notice that the tiny male figure is entirely naked. (See, ladies, it is not only the female body that offends America’s Puritanical Sensibilities.)

‘Sin City 2’ Poster: A Retouch of Class

evaretouchedRemember that poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For that the MPAA rejected for being too sexy? Well, Dimension Films came back with a slightly retouched version that apparently tamped down Eva Green‘s hotness sufficiently for the censorship board industry trade panel to sign off on it.

Yeah, the two versions look essentially the same, but if you look closely, titular character Ava Lord’s white robe has been darkened enough to obscure more of her right nipple, which was the primary sticking point for the MPAA.

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…

sincity2sexyThe 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.)

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

A Second Look at ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have unleashed their second trailer for their comic book adaptation Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the follow-up to 2005’s Sin City. Along with a few more photographs.

A lot of the same characters are back in this sorta-prequel, sorta-sequel, and some of those familiar characters have new faces thanks to recasting — Devon Aoki is out, Jamie Chung is in as Miho; Michael Clarke Duncan passed away in 2012, so Dennis Haysbert takes over as Manute. But the Sin City universe is still the ultimate noir, shot in black-and-white with splashes of accent colors like blood red and blue.
