First poster for “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” debuts with new “Machete Kills” teaser

620x sin city a dame to kill for

Posted by on

Okay, so don’t get your hopes up too much, but this might actually happen, people.

What appear to be new promotional posters for “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” and “Machete Kills” have popped up online. And while neither poster offers much insight into the status of their respective films, the simple fact of their existence means that both Robert Rodriguez projects just might make it to theaters — which isn’t surprising for “Machete Kills,” but almost unbelievable for the eternally in-development “Sin City” sequel.

The poster for “A Dame to Kill For” initially appeared on Portuguese-language site C7nema (via Movies.com), where it’s indicated that the film will be a 3-D movie — which also isn’t too surprising, given the first film’s emphasis on the visual side of things.

Our last update on “Machete Kills” had the film kicking off its shooting schedule sometime soon, with production on “A Dame To Kill For” now likely to begin at some later point. With the timing of these posters hitting the ‘net — just ahead of the annual Cannes Film Festival, where “Sin City” first premiered — there’s reason to believe Rodriguez could be targeting next year’s festival for the “A Dame To Kill For.”

Thus far, it’s been confirmed that the “Sin City” sequel will be composed of at least three stories — two from Frank Miller’s original comics (“A Dame To Kill For” and “Just Another Saturday Night”), and one new story he wrote for the film (“The Long, Bad Night”). Miller will co-direct the film, and Jessica Alba will reprise her role as Nancy Callahan. Her character is expected to provide a common element that connects all three stories.

Given the characters that appear in the two existing stories, it’s reasonable to believe Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Devon Aoki could return for the sequel. Although Clive Owen’s character Dwight McCarthy plays a major role in “A Dame To Kill For,” the story occurs prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (from “Sin City”) chronologically, and involves a case of facial reconstruction that could render Owen’s presence in the film minimal at best.

Nevertheless, as production moves forward, we’re likely to find out more details about both films in the near future.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
