I am a HUGE fan of Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City. In fact, I believe that is is in the top ten comic films of all time. So, it is with a heavy heart that I have to report that the film has been delayed from it’s original date of October 4, 2013 to August 22, 2014.
I am hearing that this is just to make sure there is time to finish the extra-heavy FX work, and not to fix quality issues. When you think about it, even though Robert Rodriguez moves very fast on his films, he is preparing Machete Kills for release. He probably just needs more time to focus on one film before moving on to focus on the next. The studio hasn’t answered any questions as to why the film was pushed, so this is all just speculation.
Well, time will tell how well Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will do. We just have to wait a bit longer for that time.
