Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
has released a glut of new information, including an official release date, confirmation of Jessica Alba's return and the fact that the film will be presented in 3D.
First things first, and that all-important release date has been confirmed as 4 October 2013. That's when the film will open in the US, with the UK date likely to follow in short order.
Next, we have confirmation that Jessica Alba will join Mickey Rourke in the long-awaited sequel, with both stars named in an official press release. Rosario Dawson is also expected to reappear, although her name is conspicuous by its absence in the official blurb.
What is included is the news that the film will be presented in 3D, lending a new element to the distinctive look of the first film.
"The original Sin City broke new ground with its iconic stylish look and grossed over $160 million worldwide," explains the release. " Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will not only bring fans back to the world that Rodriguez and Miller created, but will also add a new dimension by bringing their unique visual style to life in 3D."
Top dimension-based pun there. More importantly however, the date is set, and things are moving forward. Let the stylised slaughter begin!
