Bursting off the pages of the famed comic book, Frank Miller’s Sin City became one of this year’s most stylish, hip and creative films. Now fans will get to take another trip to the dark edge of Old Town with the much-anticipated SIN CITY RECUT & EXTENDED, the complete and expanded unrated version of the film with never-before-seen footage integrated directly into the feature by director Robert Rodriguez.

-Sin-Chroni-City Interactive: As the viewer watches Sin City, it becomes apparent that the characters and their stories are not isolated, but intertwined. It is also revealed that the timelines for these stories are not in synch—and yet not entirely independent. This interactive feature allows the user to get a timeline view of the happenings of Sin City. The user can see the overview schematic of the scenes in chronological order and then zoom in for more detail on any of the events.

-Sin City Recut Extended Unrated Feature Film Presentation (with 23 added minutes) Full-length expanded cuts of each individual episode (“Customer Is Always Right,” “The Hard Goodbye,” “Big Fat Kill” and “That Yellow Bastard”) split out into short films – each with their own title cards and in their own complete form; viewers can watch separately and in any order desired.

-All Green Version – A high speed look at the entire movie with only its green screen elements.

-The Long Take – A full uninterrupted 17 minute take during the filming of Quentin's segment. Audience gets to see what it's like to sit in the middle of a whirlwind of creativity while the camera is rolling. They never call cut, so everyone is concentrating, working, experimenting and being creative for 17 minutes straight. Very interesting to watch, and hear everyone brainstorming and improvising. Clive, Nicotero, Rodriguez, Tarantino, and Del Toro, Stevie J, all doing their thing at one point or another.

-Sin City: Live in Concert – Sin City filmmakers, cast and crew head over to Antone’s restaurant one night after shooting “That Yellow Bastard” so Bruce Willis' and Robert's band Chingon could play a benefit show.
