‘Sin City 2’: Robert Rodriguez has an official release date!

'Sin City 2': Robert Rodriguez has an official release date!

Theres is an official release date for “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” from Mexican-American director Robert Rodriguez. It is scheduled for release October 4, 2013.

Rodriguez wrapped up “Machete Kills” in 29 days before jumping into “Sin City 2” and is shooting on his soundstages in his native Austin. But while the movie may be underway, casting for major parts is still underway. So far, the only Latinas casted are Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, who played Nancy Callahan and Gail respectively. Alba received a lot of screen time and her character was key for many scenes along Mickey Rourke. 

Rourke’s character, Marv, was killed in the original film but this story precedes that tragic fate. Of note in the article, too, is the fact that Angelina Jolie, who was expected to play the major role of Ava, is not likely to appear. So that role is still being cast. Same goes for Dwight, originally played by Clive Owen. Owen was expected to return but apparently Dwight’s story in “Sin City 2” sees him get facial reconstruction so they will likely just recast the character. 

Rodriguez and co-director Frank Miller wrote the script for the new movie, which is a combination of comics storylines and a new one written specifically by Miller for the movie. One of the storylines being adapted is A Dame to Kill For, originally published in 1993 and featuring a man named Dwight entangled in a complicated and deadly relationship with a femme fatale named Ava.

‘The Spirit’ is a total disaster at the box office

12.29.2008 | By |

'The Spirit' is a total disaster at the box office

Things have not gone as Frank Miller had hoped for. The Spirit only managed to collect $6,510,000 from Friday to Monday and $3,842,000 on Christmas day. That is considered a calamitous result for a big budget film over this holiday weekend.This is also bad news for the actors associated with it like Eva Mendes and Gabriel Macht.

I scoured the internet and found a few quotes summarizing this abysmal outcome:

iO9.com says:

“We can only hope that this poor opening – and presumed subsequent disappointing box office, as I can’t see this movie suddenly becoming a hit based on word of mouth – means that TPTB will rethink their plan to let Miller recreate Buck Rogers for a new generation.”

Comicmix.com says:

“Frank Miller’s interpretation of Will Eisner’s classic character met with horrified reviews from those familiar with the source material and poor reviews from everyone else.  Spirit is considered the second straight misfire for Lionsgate, which also flopped with Punisher War Zone at the beginning of the month”.

Manodogs.blogspot.com says:

“Frank Miller’s film adaptation of Will Eisner’s The Spirit was soundly pummeled by ‘Marley and Me.’ Perhaps it’s a mixed blessing: if recent superhero movie performances are an indicator of audience taste, maybe the superhero movie fad is finally over; no longer will studios be able to churn-out cookie-cutter crap with a cape and expect big box office returns. Only time will prove either theory true. If The Spirit is a good film, it may have been overlooked in the wake of the superhero fad’s death; it may (also) have been overcome by bigger box-office star-power; or it could just be a bad flick. Only time will tell.”

Let’s see if Frank Miller gets a big budget for Buck Rogers now. Only time will tell.

The Spirit

Well…well…well…what can I say about Frank Miller’s, The Spirit? If you don’t know…this is the same guy who brought you…SIN CITY…and my favorite…300.
SOOO…I was definitely setting my standards high. Well people…it was CRAP!! As in Great Dane crap!! It’s about this cop – – who gets murdered in the line of duty – – he is then brought back to life…by an experimental drug (Yeah, I know)…once realizing his super abilities – he decides to fight crime. (Wack!)
 
It’s got a HOT cast – Miss Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson are in the movie…if it wasn’t for them…I would’ve gotten up and left the theater. I was sooo confused…and bored…not going to lie…it didn’t make any sense to me. (lol) Mr. Samuel L. Jackson stars in it as well…and, I’m not going to lie. The more I watch his movies – – the more he annoys me. I don’t know what it is. I just know its super wack…with a capital S.
 
The movie is filmed great though – it did have that Sin City / 300 feel to it…but that’s about it. Maybe that’s why it only made 4 million at the box office opening weekend.
