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.
