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!

Eva Green isn’t religious, but believes in the supernatural.

The 34-year-old actress stars as a spiritualist in TV series Penny Dreadful, which is about a group of people who battle supernatural threats in London, UK. It’s got her thinking about what might be out there, with Eva adamant humans aren’t alone.

“There are forces, yes – I’m not religious but I believe there is something other,” she told British magazine Hello! “One of my friends is a psychic. She doesn’t talk about it because people might think she’s crazy but she has visions and has told me some interesting things about my own life.”

It’s not just spooky things which gives the French actress the shivers. Eva is also terrified of trying out for film and TV roles, which thinking about the state of the world can get her down too.

“Auditions! Lots of things frighten me: nasty people; ruthlessness in the world; oh and flying – I’m terrible at it,” she sighed.

To counteract her feelings of fear, Eva has a few hobbies which keep her chilled. Some of them developed from childhood and she still finds it relaxing to visit the places she’d frequent with her loved ones. Plus she’s added a few more tips into the mix.

“To go for long walks in the mountains, especially Switzerland. I’ve always loved mountains – I went to them with my family when young. The contact with nature makes me feel human. And pampering myself afterwards with a massage is the best treat,” she explained.

Our next dive into the violent, sexy, and visually arresting world of Sin City is right around the corner, and to help get you ready to temporarily exchange color for carnage we spent a few minutes with Eva Green to talk about what it was like to be A Dame to Kill For.

Much like the first film, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For takes us into Frank Miller’s epic neo-noir comic series. The upcoming film explores multiple comic book arcs in order to make a whole movie, but there’s a clear focus on Miller’s second comic book arc. In the comics, Dwight McCarthy finds himself finally moving away from all of the dark things in Sin City that pull you in and make you bad just as his old flame comes back into his life and sends him on a crash course down to the bottom. Ava Lord, who we learn later is the title dame, turns out to be the perfect combination of temptress and monster. With her history of playing dark characters, it sounds like Eva Green was perfect to play the role.

So, what was it like playing Ava Lord?

Eva Green: She’s such an extreme character. Very forlorn, a real femme fatale. A man-eater, enchantress, kind of a chameleon who can kind of change her skin and become what men desire. She has all these women insider here, so it was kind of fun to play all these women and to be kind of the damsel in distress, the princess, the goddess, the bitch. It was fun.

She’s a dark character across all of that, not just when she needs to be. You get the feeling that she’s just always this dark person.

Eva Green: She is dark. I mean, she is like 200% so dark. Her heart is so cold and hard, and you wonder what happened in her past to make her like that. Maybe she was born like that, just completely bonkers. I’ve played evil characters but that one is, yeah, pretty full on dark.

Sin City is this incredibly visual experience for the viewers, because it’s so black and white with these flashes of color. What is that experience like on your side of the lens?

Eva Green: I knew the first Sin City, so I knew it was in good hands and it would look really cool. But it’s true, I mean there’s green screen and then there’s green screen. I’ve done green screen before but here we had no furniture, no doors, no walls. There were a lot of scenes where it was just me and the other person in the scene, which is fine. It’s fun when you can use your imagination, but really when you have another actor in front of you that’s all that matters.

In preparation for the role, did you read any of the comics or anything?

Eva Green: I only read A Dame To Kill For. I knew that Frank and Robert had used it as a storyboard, and that they were going to be very faithful to that. Reading it helped so I knew what would be surrounding me. You have to bring your own flesh to the role, though. It was nice to see how she was moving and it helped a lot to embrace Frank’s vision. I tried my best, anyway.
