Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s cinematic “Sin City,” based on Miller’s comic book series of the same name, is a place populated almost exclusively by criminals, lowlifes and corrupt public officials. It’s the kind of place that is perpetually rain-soaked and blood-splattered. And in the new sequel, “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” things get even more sinful thanks to the addition of the titular dame, played by Eva Green, who basically slinks her way through her section of the movie (once again, the narrative has been diced into bite-sized vignettes). Green is so sexy, in fact, that she’s been causing a commotion with the movie’s marketing — first a poster was banned due to Green’s, er, voluptuousness and now a TV spot has been supposedly pulled from NBC because it’s just too darn sexy.

The spot, obviously, focuses on Green’s section of the movie (which, coincidentally enough, is also called “A Dame to Kill For”). In this section, Josh Brolin plays Dwight (which, confusingly, is a character portrayed by Clive Owen in the first “Sin City”), a small time hood who makes his money by taking photos of important men in compromising positions. (In one moment in the spot, you can see him peeping on Ray Liotta’s character, who is caught with Juno Temple.) The TV spot does some nifty things, comparing Brolin’s character to his comic-book incarnation and adding some comic book-like text to the screen.

But the thing that has gotten the clip in hot water is the appearance of Green, who plays a supposed damsel in distress who turns out to be a lot more trouble than she’s worth. In one scene, her nipples are very clearly visible (so I’m not quite sure how this was ever intended to air on television, even in the late night slots allotted for advertisements of R-rated movies), but considering what percentage of Green’s performance is comprised of her prancing around totally naked, it is but a fleeting moment.

Whatever the intent behind the spot (and whatever its reasons for getting yanked), it’s a super cool clip for a super cool movie (that we’re not allowed to talk about — but trust us, it is!) When “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” rolls out on August 22nd, you can expect similarly vampy performances by almost everyone involved, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Powers Boothe. And be sure to check back next week, for interviews with the cast and crew and our review of the film. It’s going to be sinfully good!

    Pretty sure it just got yanked because they feared people would go out and kill someone after hearing Ava Lord say “kill him”
