When I found these two movie stills for the upcoming film V for Vendetta I was like, 'cool, more movie stills for the adaptation.' But then I looked at the movie page for the film and came to realize that, besides some early releases and posters, these two stills are actually the first official movie stills we have received for the Wachowski flick.
V for Vendetta Movie Stills
I don't know if Warner Bros is trying to do the trickling water effect, but to have only two movie stills released as a set is king of weak. What I am hoping is that these two stills for V for Vendetta will break open the floodgates at Warner Bros [who loving nothing more than making posters] and get them to start releasing official stills on a weekly basis. Sound good?
I mean sh*t, the film was originally set to come out in November, so I would have hoped to have a ton of movie stills by now. Actually, I thought we did!

Looks like somebody needs a hug.
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 will be released to theatres on March 17th, 2006.
