Jessica Alba and Josh Brolin let the monster out in new ‘Sin City 2’ trailer

Fans of the original “Sin City” can experience even more monochromatic mayhem in the latest trailer for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's belated sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” starring Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Eva Green and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. 

It's been nearly a decade since the super-stylized surprise smash “Sin City,” and in the intervening years, Basin City has grown even seedier, chock full of even more scarred outlaws, femme fatales, corrupt officials, double-crossers, and vengeful strippers.

While dodging punches, bullets and shards of shattered dreams, these and other unsavory characters get to spout such noir-inflected lines as “You don't even wanna dream about my worst,” “Crazy's sounding pretty good right now,” and “Never lose control…never let the monster out.” 

“Dame” stars veterans Alba, Willis, Rosario Dawson, Mickey Rourke and Powers Boothe, plus newcomers Brolin, Gordon-Levitt, Lady Gaga, Dennis Haysbert and Green as the title “Dame.”

“Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” opens August 22, 2014
