Nearly 10 years ago, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller joined forces for Sin City. It was a vivid and almost literal adaptation of Miller's graphic novel of the same name. Sin City featured an ensemble cast that embodied memorable characters such as Dwight, Marv and Jackie Boy.

Most of the original cast has returned for its sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But there are a few new additions, such as Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lady Gaga. Yes, the flamboyant pop star is in the film. We shouldn't be too surprised; she also appeared in Rodriguez's Machete Kills.

Who is this "dame" everyone's willing to kill for? She's Ava Lord, and she's played by French actress Eva Green. As a former Bond girl, Green is a perfect fit for the role. She knows how to hold her own in a scene. Judging by the trailer, Ava's as deadly as she is beautiful.
