The V for Vendetta Posters 4/4 [now with Kong!]

Postby Flumm on Wed Nov 16, 2005 2:41 am

Harry posted this on the main page...


Hey folks, Harry here... with a very old school very post WWI but pre WWII German expressionistic poster design for V FOR VENDETTA - and now this is what a Alan Moore film One Sheet is supposed to look like. Right? Style, history, mystery and awe all wrapped up in a poster that is more than just filmic propaganda, but striking powerful composition and imagery. I dig the hell out of this poster, don't you? It's nice, but I think it is odd that I get to debut this poster on the same day that the German Expressionistic Sci Fi Masterpiece of Poster Art for Fritz Lang's METROPOLIS set the world record for highest price ever paid for a movie poster: Click Here For the Story! Well, here's that V FOR VENDETTA poster:


Image



...and one of the talkbackers has said that it's 1 of 4, so I'll keep the thread updates for you y'all.

(what? They say that in england... they do!)

I like it, I'm still not convinced on the realworld version of V's mask, but I think the poster is really interesting... what do you guys think?

Poster 2!

The trailer, however, did not. Hughes brothers, Wachowski brothers... first dibs on the farrelly brothers doing the Watchmen.

Yeah, if they could have somehow pulled off this sort of look in the trailer it would have interesting... rather than the polished Matrix look they ended up with.

Natalie Portman still looks great even bald. She is the new Keira Knightley, only better.

I was one of the extras in the bit where the guy fawks crowd burn the houses of parliement. This was the only job I didn't get payed for though, as I forgot to sign out as I was too busy trying to chat up the wardrobe man eating lady.

Funny you should say that, Kirk, since Keira more or less got her start in the movies as Nathalie Portman's look-alike in The Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones... one of those two.

I was an Extra on them as well.

Natalie is an incredible charming, very loud and full of life young girl. Quite intelligent too.

Maybe that's why she was looking at me from time to time on our dinner table (seemingly). But then again, in everyday life anyone, even blokes or kids, old grannies, etc. look at you from time to time. On trains, bus, dole queue, magistrates court room etc. Don't mean that they all fancy you though.

Wishfull thinking eh? Keep repeating, 'Just 'cos it doen't happen, doesn't mean it isn't true'.

You keep telling yourself that Kirk.

Do you think the Wachowski brothers will do this film justice? I don't want it to be too OTT.

Don't be so sure - I bet she longs to be around non-celebs sometimes. Mind you, it's too late now, eh? I like to think that I would have at least had a go, in that situation. You know, shown her some of my MC Hammer moves or something

i hope the actual film is as good!

i have been in love with Natalie Portman for years. beautiful
and intelligent? *sigh* she's perfect...

Keira Knightly is gorgeous, but don't you get the feeling
she is as dumb as a stump? Ms. Portman is a goddamn Harvard
graduate (almost)... she's perfect... i love her... YOU WILL NOT
TAKE HER FROM ME!!!

It's a very nice bit of design, but to me it has about as much subtlety as the trailer. "Freedom! Forever!"? V would never say something so trite, and I assume it's V's POV we're getting here.

Why is Portman shaved? If the script follows the original plot, she'll have plenty of hair until halfway in and grow it out reasonably quickly after being shaved. Both trailer and poster have played up the shaving too much; it's supposed to be a shock to Evey and to the audience.

I'd like to see more of the storm troopers, definitely more of the V/Anarchy symbol, and perhaps the "People should not be afraid of their governments ..." line. I don't love it, but it's miles above "Freedom! Forever!"

I've always been fond of the original DC Comics line: Fascist Britain, 1997. Everyone knows you can't beat the system. Everyone but V (with an appropriate image -- the troops and a V CU would do well, I think).

Freedom, Forever! Damn, you remind me of that rumour of him talking in words all beginning with v. Is there truth to that? Got I hope he doesn't just turn out like a Matrix character like the Machiavallian... A slightly bigger budget pantomime of doctor who proportions. The horror.

They should have just updated that image for the movie poster.....

That typeface is about a thousand times better suited to the V for Vendetta title than the one the movie poster has got........

And the credit placing is really lazy design..........

I worry for this film...........

Can the Wachowski brothers be trusted?

Edit: the second poster is much better...........

Image deleted to save space. Look above, pals and gals!

Shading is, I think, Lloyd's genius. There seemed to be little plain linework in the series. Everything was about shadow. This was downplayed a little towards the end when the art was drawn with color in mind, but shade remained a significant factor in shaping objects.

I would say in the case of Fight Club, reading the book is not as essential as it usually is with book-to-movie adaptations, since the movie is so faithful to both the spirit and the letter of the book.

Personally, I've found reading a book first taints the movie, since I always "direct" the film version in my head, and what ends up on screen never lives up to what I've imagined. That's ruined my enjoyment of a few that are good movies but poor adaptations of the source material. See: The Count of Monte Cristo, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and many more.

There's another one on MTV.com, but it's in Flash format.

So far I think I like the first one the best. The second one makes the best use of that "Lloyd-esque" shadowing that Dennis and TITG were talking about though.

That second poster is German Expressionism redux. The quickly famous photo of Natalie now makes her look like Cesare the Somnabulist in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

ETA: Also like the zombie head on the original Dawn of the Dead poster.

Both poster 2 and poster 3 show V as a line drawing. Edit to Clarify: In poster 1 V looks like a painting. Does the mask look that bad?

Again, why "Freedom! Forever!"? Better something about anarchy, coming from V's mouth.

I don't think the posters are trying to convey the tone of V for Vendetta, I just think they're supposed to get people's attention with their boldness, perhaps raise interest in the thing. It's sorta Revolution Chic, if you ask me; these posters seem like the kind of T-shirts you'd find at Hot Topic.

I'm trying to think of a way to describe the "Freedom! Forever!" thing, but all I keep thinking of is "Amandla!"

Good point. The phrase is just jingo, though, and that turns me off.

How 'bout -- I am an anti-Christ! I am an An-ar-chist!

I wonder if the bit with the eucharist made it into the movie. Betcha $20 it didn't.

I'm just happy to have movie posters with some grandeur to them. The movie posters of the last 20 years have just been photos of actors' faces staring into the camera.

That said, how many protestors/revolutionaries call for something forever? Don't they usually want it now?

I think I object to the beauty of the posters being defaced with such simple, offensive jingo when there are any number of decent lines they could use. Aside from a few nuts and monsters, who among us doesn't want freedom forever?

We aren't paid hundreds of thousand of dollars each year to come up with or appropriate them. I'm certain there's something in V itself, and had I time I'd find it.

I've been going back checking for updates about the V for Vendetta posters, and I've eneded up watching the V trailer a couple of more times... and as muchas I love what he did with Smith, it just seems to me that his English accent, is more than a little awkward...

Anyways, I don't have any themes or anything running on the desktop, but in the past, the very best one I've found, was a HAL from 2001 based thing...

...hearing "daaaaisy daiisssssy..." as you logged off, really did put a smile on the face.



HAHA - years ago, I used to use "my mind is going" as my shutdown sound!

I haven't heard him attempting an English accent in V, but when I was a very young boy, there was a fantastic TV show about the infamous "Bodyline" test match series between England and Australia back in (I think) the 1930s.

Weaving played the English captain, Douglas Jardine, and he did it pretty expertly. Of course, you must remember that I was about 6 when I saw this - but my dad absolutely loved the program, so as far as I know, he does have some history when it comes to impersonating English accents! Maybe he's lost his touch after all this time, eh?

I really dunno why they never repeat Bodyline, especially after such a great year for English Cricket!



Just kind of continuing a conversation that developed on the Star Wars thread...

If you find the time TITG, I would check out the trailer again.

Putting the accents aside for a second, one of the things I noticed about watching it again, is how much the imagery, and style feels a lot like the Matrix...

...while the graphic novel obviously stands on it's own merits... there's several moments that ring bells...

For instance there's a clip of a slow close up on V's boots, as he slowly steps into a room... there's an interrogation scene with a defiant prisoner by the institutional badguy... there's the parrell shots of evey in the rain, and V in a firey door way, and in it V looks like Smith from the "It's MY World, MY world...* scene in Revoloutions... the generic uniformed bad guys V is beating the crap out of look and feel a lot like the generic uniformed bad guys from, well you know where... not to mention the shaved head, although I guess that's not quite the same.

:roll:


I don't know if this is a good or thing or not, but I hope the movie has enough identity to stand up on it's own, in the same way that the source material does.

Just to add some balance, I thought that Portman's performace looked really great from certain beats in the trailer. The shots of her being interrogated, are not in the least bit amature...



And for those among you who enjoy this sorta thing, the hangman game at the V website, is actually pretty entertaining for what it is. It's no Dino Kong... but the way they have designed it is petty cool...

...check it out here, while we wait for the last poster from the glibs from UGO.

At last...

All four of the V for Vendetta posters are up, and they are at the very least provocative ... the final one just up by UGO (listed as the 3rd by the official website, so it's the same here) is very simple, but at the same time very well done. If you haven't already, check them out...

Well done MTV they have done it again, what a poor excuse for a website it is. Yeah I can see the poster but even when you look at the fullscreen version it's just the smaller one blown up on Flash, what utter Bullshit.

I voted number 2, number 1 is cool but Natalie Portman looks more like a man, Number 3 was my favourite except for Portman rubbing her buzz cut which looks like THX or something, and the MTV one sucks donkey dick.

These posters are like a boner made out of punching.

I'm not to keen on the Wachowskis these days, but these are the coolest posters I've seen in years. Brilliance.

Yeah the MTV site is chronically bad. How many people are they employing to tell them that that crapfest is even worth running?

And I'm never going back to UGO, they pretty much put the poster up a day later than everyone else. I can't imagine that was for anything other than to wring as much traffic out of the situation as possible.

I'm not gonna waste energy and get angry at them though, ... at the end of the day, we did get some fecking cool posters...
