Watch the Trailer for ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’

It’s been nine years since Frank Miller’s Sin City neo-noir graphic novels got the big screen treatment. Today brings a trailer for the follow up – aptly titled Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite – weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales – pairing the town’s most hard boiled citizens  with some of its more reviled inhabitants. Newcomers Eva Green, Josh Brolin, and Joseph Gordon-Leavitt join returnees like Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Mickey Rourke, Powers Boothe and Jaime King. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens August 22. The official synopsis appears below.

In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

2015 Ducati Diavel

Ducati presents the new and upgraded version of its Diavel “cruiser” for 2015, featuring an updated version of its predecessor’s 11-degree Testastretta engine, updated cosmetic details and a new exhaust system. The engine upgrades come from the brand’s Dual Spark design, the engine now boasts dual spark plugs in each of its four-valve heads. The bike produces 96.3 pound-feet of torque and the same 162 horsepower as the previous model, but gets to its peak power sooner at 8000 rpm. Additionally, the bike features Ducati Traction Control, three ride modes (Sport, Touring and Urban), an LED headlamp and LED turn signals. It also still gets a Marzocchi fork, Sachs rear shock and Brembo mono-block brakes. The 2015 Ducati Diavel will come in two versions, the standard version will sell for $17,995 USD with the Carbon version retailing for $20,995 USD. The new bikes are expected to be available in April.

INCH Hair Salon and Spa, Oslo, Norway

Blame us, Norwegian designers and/or their possible dislike of communication, or a slight language barrier, but Norwegian design is not often seen in design media.

We would love to change that and we are currently liking the award-winning work of Oslo-based Inne Design’s Interior Architect Vigdis A. Bergh.

We noticed her work with hair salon and spa INCH whose owner Kirstin Arnesen is clearly onto something. Her little unisex emporium for the balance of body and mind has been gradually growing in Oslo.

 
We love the design features Inne Design brought to the first store. The eclectic mix of custom-furnishings and individual finds from flea markets and antique stores creates a fun and interesting environment. Also worthy of mention is the ocreative repurposing of such simple pieces as the retro round tables fitted with mirrors that can be removed should they be needed for serving drinks or buffet food at events held in the space.

 
We like the flexibility, the balance between the feminine and the masculine, and the raw and funky concrete flooring and street art contrasted with velvety plush seating and classic pieces.

 
Another project worth a note by the same design team is Melkerampa.– Tuija Seipell.
