for Vendetta has had a bumpy start with it's projected
release date pushed back and Alan Moore [author] giving the changes to his
graphic novel a thumbs down, I admit to have the comic-style novel sitting
right on top of my desk as I prepare for a film I can only hope is incredible.
Therefore, I am please to assure fans of the graphic novel and of the trailer
that the MPAA has confirmed that this film will be released in all its violent
glory. Hurray for violence!
V for Vendetta Goes R
The good people over at SHH
have recently posted that the MPAA have officially tagged the upcoming Wachowski
film with a solid R-rating. Therefore, I must conclude that the teaser trailer
for the film was only a lie of what is to come, as it made the film look
like a PG-13 fluff-fest. Besides the report, we also have updated our synopsis
for V for Vendetta thanks to the official
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 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.
V for Vendetta begins the revolution on March 17th, 2006.
