Beginning this Friday, the one-week countdown for
will begin. We have already gotten all the trailers, clips, and other online
media we can possibly get. Now, the only thing left is interviews with characters
from the film.
Owen & Del Toro Talk Sin City
was able to catch up with Clive Owen and Benicio Del Toro and get them to
say a few words about the upcoming Frank Miller graphic novel adaptation
Sin City. If you have already seen the behind the scenes to Sin
City, and the video interviews, you can tell that this cast is pumped
for this film.
Here is a little of what Clive Owen and Benicio Del Toro had to say about
their involvement with Sin City:
"I was approached by Robert," Del Toro said. "I think we met at the Vanity Fair thing and he said something really strange, like 'Don't cut your hair.' And my hair was pretty long; I go, 'OK.' Then I met him here at the Four Seasons and he showed me-he had done a trailer of the opening sequence of the movie and it just looked amazing. I wasn't familiar with the books; I was familiar with Frank's work in Batman and stuff and since then, my preparation was really talking to the Wizard - he got that nickname, I gave (Robert) that nickname…We just walked in and everything was green and I had seen how it looked already cause he had shown me the beginning of the movie, the opening sequence. It was like being in the office of the Wizard of Oz."
Frank Miller was greatly involved in directing the film and Owen enjoyed working with him. "Having Frank there was absolutely essential for everything. He's the god that conjured up this sort of crazy world. I saw the film yesterday for the first time, and I have to say I think this guy is a genius. I was blown away by it. It's that world. I felt at the end of the movie like I'd been taken to some extraordinary place I'd never been before, and I think Frank's vision and world is that, and this guy has just gone and created it on film."
