Dailies | ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Trailer: Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt Face a Beating in Frank Miller's Deranged Town (Video)

Brolin steps into Clive Owen's role for the sequel to 2005's “Sin City,” while Mickey Rourke returns as Marv and Jessica Alba takes the stripper stage again

It's been almost a decade, but Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have finally delivered the first footage from “Sin City” sequel, “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.”

And the town that audiences last saw on the big screen in 2005 looks as dangerous as ever.

The trailer (above) teases the return of favorites like Marv (Mickey Rourke), stripper Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) and Dwight — who is now played by a bruised up Josh Brolin, instead of Clive Owen. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is new to the franchise as Johnny, a gambler who beat the wrong guy in poker, and his face appears to be paying the price.
