Sin City: A Dame to Kill For won’t be coming to a theater near you this October.
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s highly-anticipated sequel was originally scheduled to arrive in just a few months. Unfortunately for, the follow-up is getting pushed back to next year.
According to Coming Soon, Sin City: A Dame to Kill Your won’t hit theaters until August 22, 2014. That’s quite a delay, especially considering the movie was slated to arrive this October.
Why did Dimension decide to push the film back until next summer? The studio isn’t saying. Given that the production has already encountered a number of delays during its road to the big screen, chances are more work still needs to be done. Of course, this is pure speculation on my part.
Slash Film reports the Sin City sequel currently has the August date all to itself. However, the flick does have some stiff competition that month. James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables 3 are also scheduled to arrive next August.
This marks the second Frank Miller movie to be pushed back in recent days. 300: Rise of an Empire was also slated for release during the later half of 2013. However, Warner Bros. decided to push the movie’s release date into 2014. Miller fans are probably really frustrated right about now.
Fortunately for Robert Rodriguez aficionados, Machete Kills is still expected to arrive in theaters later this year. The star-studded sequel is currently scheduled for release on September 11. Did you miss the recently-released trailer? You can find the clip embedded below.
The Sin City follow-up stars Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jamie Chung, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Julia Garner, and Stacy Keach. Sadly, you’re going to have to wait a little longer to see them in action.
Are you disappointed that Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is getting pushed back until next year? Do you think Dimension is shooting itself in the foot by delaying the sequel?
