V for Vendetta

‘V For Vendetta’ Claims #1 with $26.1 Million

Warner Bros. Pictures' V for Vendetta left its mark in the top spot at the boxoffice for the weekend, unmasking an estimated $26.1 million in its debut. The sci-fi action-thriller from Silver Pictures, starring Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving, had the fourth-biggest opening of the year to date and was in line with prerelease tracking. First-time feature director James McTeigue helmed the R-rated Vendetta, which skewed male and reached a broad age demographic, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Paramount Pictures' Failure to Launch held up well in its sophomore frame, landing in the second spot with an estimated $15.8 million, off a moderate 35% from its opening. After its surprisingly strong debut a week ago, the Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker starrer counted down some strong midweek numbers, which contributed to a solid 10-day cume of $48.5 million.

Producer Joel Silver and Director James McTeigue Talk ‘V for Vendetta’

Describe filming the scene where Natalie Portman's head is shaved. It's basically a one shot deal right?

James McTeigue: You just go into it and hope nothing goes wrong. You use three cameras, so there is a fail safe that's put in place. Natalie is so great knowing where the character is in the narrative at that time. We had like a brief discussion, but it's basically "GO!" And hope that the shears don't get stuck or the film doesn't get jammed.

Natalie Portman Tackles the Controversy of ‘V for Vendetta’

Natalie Portman, a bundle of cuteness with her spiky blond hair, was very forthcoming and lucid during the interviews for V For Vendetta. The film tackles some tough issues and is sure to arouse controversy with its terrorism theme. V For Vendetta marks the first time Natalie will carry a big-budget film as the lead. She skillfully deflected the question by drumming up the popularity of the graphic novel and involvement of the Wachowski brothers. Her post-Star Wars choices continue to be interesting with the Milos Forman film, Goya's Ghosts, coming up in the fall and the children's film, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, next year.
