The newest trailer for Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez‘s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” has debuted, and it’s chock-full of new footage and teasers for what to expect from the anticipated sequel. The trailer offers the best look yet at Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s character Johnny, the motivation behind Nancy’s (Jessica Alba) actions in the film and much more.
During a Q&A session on Reddit, Miller described Nancy’s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” story as the conclusion to “That Yellow Bastard.”
“We see a completely different side of Nancy as she is out for revenge,” Miller said. “It’s a completely different side of her. Jessica Alba in the intervening 8 years has increased 20 fold as an actress. And if there’s a woman who goes and has two kids and you can still bend a fork on her stomach, she’s in incredible shape. All I want to say about it is that it’s her descent into hell, really. She’s been everything from a molested child to lost the love of her life. And so she’s really out to avenge Bruce Willis. And it turns out all of her skills as a dancer serve her extremely well in combat. Also, Jessica Alba looks great with a crossbow.”
