This has been a looooong time coming. Remember¬†when Angelina Jolie was set to play the titular “Dame”? Yeah, well I think they did one better with Eva Green, who has the exact right look (those EYES) and is truly excellent at playing arch, “comic book”¬†characters. My heart may have skipped a beat when she was revealed in the trailer. May have.

I fell asleep in the middle of Machete Kills last night, so I’m probably the last person you want judging this trailer if you’re a fan of the previous film/franchise/Robert Rodriguez. For what it’s worth, this looks like…another Sin City movie. The look hasn’t changed much in the nine years between installments, but why should it? I had problems with the panel-for-panel approach to adapting the stories (mainly because I was too familiar with them to get anything new out of the film) but damn, it’s a pretty movie.

Anyway, here’s the trailer. Looks like someone paid Bruce Willis the money Stallone wouldn’t.
