NOW HOW'S THAT FOR A MOVIE POSTER, EH? This day-brightener came to me from Scott the Browncoat, who says Serenity isn't the only movie freedom lovers should be looking forward to.
I'd never heard of this one. But Scott writes:
"V For Vendetta" is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Alan Moore (great british comic author). It is one of the first modern comics to go beyond superhero stories and jump into art. And this is art for adults. The following is from [the book's listing on Amazon.com]: "A frightening and powerful story of the loss of freedom and identity in a totalitarian world, V for Vendetta takes place in an alternate future in which Germany wins WWII and Britain becomes a fascist state. A vigilante named 'V' stalks the streets of London trying to free England of its ideological chains."
The cast looks intriguing. Definitely going to keep an eye on this one.
The tagline asks us to "Remember, remember the Fifth of November" -- Guy Fawkes Day (the character "V" wears a Guy Fawkes mask). But it wouldn't do to release a film on a Saturday night, so November 4 is the date to await.
