Natalie Portman, Joel Silver and Wachowski Bros. fans rejoice!
On August 1, 2006 there are going to be 2 versions of the critically acclaimed and controversial V For Vendetta hitting DVD stores!
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 man (Hugo Weaving) known only as "V." Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he urges 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 plan to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption.
