The pic currently has the new date to itself. Earlier in the month Guardians of the Galaxy, Dracula and The Expendables 3 are set to hit theaters.
It’s been more than eight years since Sin City, based on Miller’s comic series, opened in theaters. The 2005 film has grossed $158.7 million worldwide to date.
his is the second project based on the work of Miller to be pushed back this year. Just one month ago, 300: Rise of an Empire was postponed from its August 2013 release date to March 7, 2014.
Rodriguez has also helmed another project that is set for release: Machete Kills, a follow-up to 2010’s Machete, which is slated for a Sept. 13 release. – The Hollywood Reporter
