An amazing cast of big-screen favorites is directed by Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn), Frank Miller - and special guest director Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill 1 & 2, Pulp Fiction) - in an acclaimed and visually stunning hit that's the coolest movie of the year! Straight from the pages of Miller's hip series of Sin City graphic novels, Bruce Willis stars as a cop with a bum ticker and a vow to protect a sexy stripper (Jessica Alba - Fantastic Four); Mickey Rourke (Man on Fire) as an outcast misanthrope on a mission to avenge the death of his one true love (Jaime King - Pearl Harbor); and Clive Owen (King Arthur) as Dwight, the clandestine love of Shellie (Brittany Murphy - Little Black Book), who spends his night defending Gail (Rosario Dawson - The Devil's Rejects) and her Old Town girls (Devon Aoki and Alexis Bledel) from a tough guy (Benicio Del Toro - 21 Grams) with a penchant for violence. Also starring Elijah Wood, Nick Stahl, Michael Madsen, Carla Gugino and Michael Clarke Duncan.

Trivia: Robert Rodriguez originally asked Hans Zimmer to score the music, but Zimmer couldn't accept it, cause at the time he was in England preparing Batman Begins (2005). Zimmer recommended John Debney and Graeme Revell, both are friends of the German composer. (more)

Goofs: Continuity: The scar on Hartigan's forehead keeps changing from one of 4 repaired cuts (like a plus sign +) to one of 5 (like a starfish) (more)

[from trailer]
Dwight: It's time to prove to your friends that you're worth a damn. Sometimes that means dying, sometimes it means killing a whole lot of people.
