* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Creator/JessicaAlba signed on not knowing that Nancy dances completely naked. She asked for the nudity to be removed. Creator/RobertRodriguez and Creator/FrankMiller agreed, feeling there was no need for it.
* SelfAdaptation: Creator/FrankMiller was a co-director on ''Sin City'', as Creator/RobertRodriguez felt that being such a direct adaptation of the original comics (the visual compositions usually being directly lifted from the panels) meant that most of his directorial work had already been done for him by the creator.

* BoxOfficeBomb: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For - Budget, estimated between $60 million to $70 million. Box office, $35,093,856. The nine-year-long gap between the original movie and the sequel and the controversy over Ava Lord's semi nude movie poster most likely contributed to this.
