* 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.



** The first film was planned to include the "Hell And Back" sequence with Johnny Depp as Wallace. It was eventually scrapped and didn't materialise in the sequel.

* FakeShemp: Used a lot due to how the movie was shot. Since most of it was green screen, characters could be added in after certain scenes had already been shot. For example, when Marv takes Wendy to Nancy's apartment, Jessica Alba had not been cast yet - so she was added in later. Likewise, Mickey Rourke and Elijah Wood never met until the premiere - despite their characters interacting prominently in the movie.

* ContractualPurity: It appears as if Creator/ElijahWood and Alexis Bledel were attempting to break out of it, respectively playing a cannibal and a hooker. Wood had just come off playing Frodo Baggins, while Bledel had been known for ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' and ''Film/TheSisterhoodOfTheTravellingPants''. The sequel also features a cameo from Alexa Vega as a stripper - Vega had been a child star best known for ''Film/SpyKids''. Ironically both films were directed by Creator/RobertRodriguez.
