'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" (August 22)
Nothing succeeds like excess. At least that was the case when Robert Rodriguez brought Sin City, from Frank Miller's series of graphic novels, to savage life onscreen in 2005. Like before, Rodriguez and co-director Miller shoot the actors (led this time by Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and, yes, Lady Gaga) against computer-generated backgrounds that make the action leap off the screen. If you're looking for fierce, this this Sin City sequel is "fierce" to kill for.
