The kind folks at Warner
Bros. sent me some cool V for Vendetta art as well as
some interesting reading. Enjoy!
Here's one of the posters -- my
favorite, because of the line at the top.
This one's my favorite picture,
because of V's pose and the poster behind him ...
And I really like this picture too because
of the little things -- the "V TV" logo on the television screen,
the picture to the right of the door, etc.
Here's a brief description of
the movie (from Warner Bros.):
Set against the
futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V For Vendetta tells
the story of a young working-class woman named Evey who is rescued
from a life-and-death situation by a masked man known only as “V.”
complex, V is at once literary, flamboyant, tender and intellectual,
a man dedicated to freeing his fellow citizens from those who have
terrorized them into compliance. He is also bitter,
revenge-seeking, lonely and violent, driven by a personal vendetta.
In his quest to
free the people of England from the corruption and cruelty that have
poisoned their government, V condemns the tyrannical nature of their
appointed leaders and invites his fellow citizens to join him in the
shadows of Parliament on November the 5th – Guy Fawkes Day.
On that day in
1605, Guy Fawkes was discovered in a tunnel beneath Parliament with
36 barrels of gunpowder. He and his co-conspirators had engineered
the treasonous “Gunpowder Plot” in response to the tyranny of their
government under James I. Fawkes and his fellow saboteurs were
hanged, drawn and quartered, and their plan to take down their
government never came to pass.
In the spirit of
that rebellion, in remembrance of that day, V vows to carry out the
plot that Fawkes was executed for attempting on November 5th in
1605: he will blow up Parliament.
As Evey uncovers
the truth about V’s mysterious past, she also discovers the truth
about herself – and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination
of his plan to ignite a revolution, bringing freedom and justice
back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption.
