SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

/Film has posted a new featurette for "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" detailing why the movie was filmed in 3D.

A new red band TV spot has hit online -- since it's red band, please be aware that it has a bit of adult content within.

Finally, Mickey Rourke stopped by "Late Night with Seth Meyers" to discuss his involvement in the upcoming sequel, reprising his role as Marv, and praised the direction of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

"When you work with Robert, he knows what he wants," said Rourke. "Frank's on the set and he puts his two cents in, so it's great. You've got two guys that are very enthusiastic, and know exactly what they want. If I make an adjustment, they say, 'Why don't you try this?' and it's usually a better idea than what I came up with."

THE WALKING DEAD

ComicBook.com has posted a report about the letters page from "The Walking Dead" #130, where creator Robert Kirkman addresses a question about Daryl Dixon's sexual orientation.

"All I can say is that it’s been discussed," Kirkman wrote in response. "We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing… we’ll tackle it in the show."

When further asked if AMC would allow the possibility of Daryl being gay, Kirkman said, "For the record, they absolutely would."

DOCTOR WHO

The Hollywood Reporter has posted a quick report from the New York City premiere of the "Doctor Who" season premiere, during which Peter Capaldi discussed his interaction with former Doctors Matt Smith and David Tennant.

"Once I became the Doctor, I invited Matt to lunch to discuss the role and he arrived on crutches -- I said, 'What happened to you?' and he said, 'The show, mate,'" Capaldi said. "Matt Smith and David Tennant have both been very kind and helpful to me. I often talk to them and text them and ask for advice. It's a very small club, we talk about stuff that only doctors can talk about. … My Doctor is a little more dapper, a little more alien, a little less user-friendly, but he's a very enthusiastic and passionate person about the universe."
