Trailer-Off: Sleek, Sexy 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' vs. Sweet, Gorgeous 'The Boxtrolls'
It’s like trying to pick between the impossibly hot bad boy and the adorable, charming good guy…I can’t pick! I love both these trailers.
First up, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson; the sequel already caused a fuss over Green’s sexy poster, deemed unacceptably sexy (um, what?). Based on Frank Miller’s second Sin City book, the film also features two original stories and hot damn, this trailer is so gorgeous I want to make love to it (Did I type that out loud?):
Whew, I need to cool down. But this isn’t any old glass of ice water — this is The Boxtrolls, over which I’ve been salivating since I saw the first images. Produced by Laika (ParaNorman, Coraline), the film tells of an orphan boy raised by under-the-city dwellers called Boxtrolls. When a nasty exterminator comes after his family, the boy heads above ground to defend them. Starring Game of Thrones’ Isaac Hempstead Wright, Ben Kingsley,Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Richard Ayoade, The Boxtrolls looks sweet and beautiful and fun:
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theaters August 22nd, and The Boxtrolls sweeps in September 26th. What’s your pleasure?
