According to the Los Angeles Times, Erik Lomis, head of distribution for the Weinstein Co., said. "We're all very disappointed. We weren’t prepared for this level of rejection."

‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ Is Another Fun Outing, But Lacks
If you’ve seen 2005's Sin City, there’s not much that will surprise you about its sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Cool comedy, colorful characters and surprisingly real romance are at the heart of a film that frankly deserves its due. I remember the 2004 film..."The Girl Next Door."
