The official website for V For Vendetta has announced that four new posters for the action-thriller will hit theaters on Friday. Ain’t-It-Cool-News will have a preview of the first one tonight with the remaining three appearing on MTV, IGN and UGO tomorrow.
Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V For Vendetta tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey (Natalie Portman) who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked vigilante (Hugo Weaving) known only as “V.” Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he detonates two London landmarks and takes over the government-controlled airwaves, urging his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V’s mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself — and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption.
Opening March 17, the film is based on the acclaimed graphic novel “V For Vendetta” by Alan Moore (“The Watchmen,” “From Hell”) and illustrator David Lloyd. James McTeigue directs the film, written by the Wachowski brothers.
