I’m eagerly awaiting this. The movie posters look like they were pulled straight from Frank Miller’s illustrations, and you can tell Robert Rodriguez has great fondness and respect for the source material. I think Mickey Rourke is an inspired choice for Marv, too. There will be plenty of eye candy, also: Jessica Alba as Nancy, Rosario Dawson as Gail, and so on.
I heard early rumors that the three interweaving stories within the Sin City film would each have a different director: Rodriguez himself, Frank Miller, and Quentin Tarantino, and Rodriguez resigned from the Directors’ Guild of America because they do not allow more than one director credit on a movie. If this is true (the three directors), this may be the coolest and most accurate comic book adaptation ever. And even if not, I’ll be there opening day, expecting something terrific.
Have you guys checked out the “trailer” linked to on that website?
Oh. My. God. I just creamed my pants.
The link is just under the pictures, where it says “Sin City footage.” It’s a large file ~ 55 megs. There are some spoilers if you haven’t read the books–mainly one where you see someone get killed.
Let me say again:
Oh. My. God.
Looks to be incredibly faithful to the look of the comics. Very stylistic. The video shows images from the books that are reproduced exactly in the movie.
Now I’ll be going crazy with anticipation until this comes out.
can’t wait can’t wait can’t wait can’t wait can’t wait
