Sorry No One, 'Sin City 2' Pushed Back A Year

sin-city-300 Dimension

In an announcement that should surprise no one, mostly because nobody bothered to care in the first place, Dimension Films has quietly pushed back Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's blood-soaked sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," back nearly a year. Gone is its original October 3rd slot, and it will instead bow on August 22nd, 2014. For those of you really looking forward to a lot of shitty green screen and film noir-y dialogue more mumbled than spoken, this must come as a crushing blow. Get More »

Questions and Answers With Rosario Dawson

Since she was pulled off the streets of New York at age 14 to star in the controversial "Kids," Rosario Dawson continues to make an impression on screen with her provocative choices. Whether she goes for laughs in "Clerks II," takes a wild ride in Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof" or becomes a lethal warrior prostitute in Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City," Dawson rarely plays it safe.

Dawson continues her cinematic fearless streak in Danny Boyle's mind-bending "Trance," which opens in U.S. theaters on April 5. The film tells the story of a fine art auctioneer named Simon (James McAvoy) mixed up with a criminal gang headed by Franck (Vincent Cassel), who seeks out the help of mysterious hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb (Dawson) to recover a lost Goya painting. The stakes quickly rise in this modern noir as the boundaries between reality, hypnotic suggestion and suppressed emotions blur.

We sat down for a face-to-face session with the always hypnotic Dawson and chatted about her susceptibility to suggestion, why she's okay with being nude in "Trance" and what freaks her out more than anything. Get More »
