Today Dimension Films have released what they bill as “the World Premiere” of the Sin City A Dame to Kill For Trailer!

The trailer follows the 2005 film Sin City in it’s very stylised visuals. Lots of high contrast black and white with coloured highlights (red lips, blue coat and orange flame) all try to convoy the feel of a graph novel.

It was an interesting technique which we feel for the original did not lead to that great a film. More style over substance? Let’s hope they have worked this out better this time. Certainly the trailer is interesting.
