Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the long-awaited sequel to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City, opened in theaters this past weekend and is a very different kind of movie because of the way it's shot, as witnessed in this B-roll footage revealing countless behind-the-scenes moments captured during the film’s production.
The most striking thing about all of this material is just how green it is. Sin City is best known for its stark and stylized black-and-white color scheme, so it’s a bit of a shock to watch actors parading around in front of lots of green screens so everything can be added in digitally later. Whenever we see clips like this, we come away with a new respect for actors because they’re working in an environment that doesn’t even physically exist. That’s not easy to do.
The two videos reveal how Rodriguez and Frank Miller interact with their cast and crew, show Miller doing some artwork on the set, and reveal how several of the stunt sequences were filmed with wires and harnesses. If you love Sin City and find yourself wanting more, or if you’re just curious about what happens on the set of a movie, then watch these clips.
