Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
Opens Aug 22, 2014
Sin City redefined noir aesthetics with its stylized broads and nebulous con men. Now, nine years and a hundred rip-offs later, comics legend Frank Miller and codirector Robert Rodriguez are pushing the visual envelope into three dimensions. ''I was resistant to 3-D at first till I saw what [Rodriguez] had in mind,'' says Miller. Adds Rodriguez: ''It feels like you are really in Sin City. When you look down at your wrist and your hand, you expect that to be black and white too.''

Joining familiar faces like Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke in the film's four vignettes are newcomers Eva Green as a femme fatale, Lady Gaga in a mysterious role, and Josh Brolin, replacing Clive Owen as PI Dwight McCarthy. Jessica Alba returns as a hardened exotic dancer. ''A girl who's dancing for the first time is different from the girl who's still doing it in the same scummy bars 10 years later,'' says Alba. ''She kind of goes psychotic.''
If I Stay
Opens Aug 22, 2014
Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) is not your usual teenage heroine. For one thing, the 17-year-old cellist is comatose after a car accident that killed her parents. In the adaptation of Gayle Forman's 2009 YA best-seller, the story turns on whether she will keep fighting for her life — including her romance with a young singer-guitarist (Jamie Blackley) — or let it all slip away. Portraying Mia in this in-between state was a challenge for documentary director R.J. Cutler (The September Issue). ''She's not transparent. She doesn't walk through the walls,'' he says. ''We used sound, costume, performance, and Steadicam so you connect with the spirit Mia in a real, grounded way.''
