Sin City

Was just looking around and found this movie. I've not heard of it before or seen the graphic novels, but it sounds like its going to be awesome - I mean, Robert Rodriguez directing?! And just check out some of the cast:
Bruce Willis, Benicio Del Toro, Rosario Dawson, Elijah Wood, Carla Gugino, Josh Hartnett, Michael Madsen, Jaime King, Brittany Murphy, Clive Owen, Mickey Rourke, Nick Stahl, Jessica Alba, Michael Clarke Duncan, Rutger Hauer...
And that's not even all of'em!

"Sin City" is infested with criminals, crooked cops and sexy dames, some searching for vengeance, some for redemption and others, both. The film incorporates storylines from three of Miller's graphic novels including 'Sin City,' which launched the long-running, critically acclaimed series, as well as 'That Yellow Bastard' and 'The Big Fat Kill.' "Sin City" stars Bruce Willis as Hartigan, a cop with a bum ticker and a vow to protect stripper Nancy (Jessica Alba); Mickey Rourke as Marv, the outcast misanthrope on a mission to avenge the death of his one true love, Goldie (Jaime King), and Clive Owen as Dwight, the clandestine love of Shelley (Brittany Murphy), who spends his nights defending Gail (Rosario Dawson) and her Old Towne girls (Devon Aoki and Alexis Bledel) from Jackie Boy (Benicio Del Toro), a dirty cop with a penchant for violence.

Sounds like a bit'o me. No release date for NZ yet, but I've seen a poster up in a theatre lobby (one with Jessica Alba). It's listed as being in post-production, and Australia get it in May 05. For more info check out IMDB page on Sin City.

I choose to display the delectable Clive Owen's poster for my own viewing pleasure.
