IGN posts their V FOR VENDETTA Poster!

Hey folks, Harry here -- this time out it isn't so much German Expressionistic as it is heavily influenced from the Spanish & Argentinian poster art worlds. I hope they did a Polish style and Russian Style posters. THESE are real movie posters - not that standard photographic crap you see all over every other film out there. Here go check it out...

    This gives me great hope for this film after a generally uninspiring trailer. Looks like they know what they're doing. A very literate poster.

    Pretty gnarly. Are all four going to be released equally?

    It'll turn a few heads.

    The "Freedom! Forever!" tag is ruining these posters...

    by LeiaDown&FuckHer

    Outside of that lame and poorly placed and implemented catchphrase these first two of the new V For Vendetta posters that have been revealed have looked great, but that tag really is a detriment to the overall look and style of these posters. It sticks out like dogs balls, take that tag away though (or place it somewhere else where it doesn't clash with the design and style so much) and these would have been truly kickass.

    Remember Remeber...

    by ArtemisClydefrog

    ... how this movie was supposed to come out last week? First time director, again without the consent of Alan Moore. This guy was DP on the Matrix films, yeah? The poster's the dog's cogs, no two ways about it- hell, I'd even be on board if the film had this look, though it'd probably come off more in line with that Franz Ferdinand 'This Fire' video. Whatever. That trailer was a touch underwhelming. The bullet-time swishy knife throw? Ugh. I'll give this a chance, but this still should've come out the weekend of the 5th for that spectacular chronological tie-in.

    Shepard Farey?

    by Nerdboy1423

    This looks like it was done by the artist Shepard Farey (the "obey" campaign, and the "walk the line" poster). Does anyone know who did this one, it's fantastic and original.

  • Nov. 16, 2005, 10:25 p.m. CST

    best of the lot so far

    by LilOgre

    the mtv and aicn posters are good but do not really fit the social circumstance of the film (rebellion to the point of violence within a romantic ideal). this one fits that circumstance well and i like it the best. could become a classic poster a la the first fargo posters.

  • Nov. 16, 2005, 11:08 p.m. CST

    It might be OK

    by Mr.Klaw

    But, within all that terrific art, where was Alan Moore's name? Did he have his name taken off and I missed it? Enlighten me, people. Klak!

  • Will this be another wonderful Moore, ahem, "adaptation" like From Hell and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (oh, excuse me, "LXG")? You know, where they basically just chuck Moore's brilliant story in favor of some shit script by a hack-for-hire?

    by Rindain

    Has the one been posted yet? Of the three I've seen, this is definitely my favorite. Now let's hope they release a new trailer that's equally cool.

    These are amazing so far...some of the best movie posters I have seen in a long time.

    Alan Moore...

    by LeiaDown&FuckHer

    ...doesn't want his name associated with this, or *any* other films based on his works (regardless of quality). He doesn't so much care that they get made, he just doesn't want anything to do with them if/when they do, and doesn't want his name used to justify or sell them either (apparently if he had his way his name wouldn't be credited or on any of these films in any way). He believes that these stories were written for the comic medium, are best told in the comic medium, and should be experienced that way, and as such he wants nothing at all to do with any filmic adaptations of his work, good, bad or indifferent. That's his position on these things pretty much in a nutshell really. As such his lack of clear crediting is hardly that surprising really.

  • Nov. 17, 2005, 12:11 a.m. CST

    nice poster/trailer was still weak though

    by Neo Zeed

    Right now it looks like a cool rental. "Uncompromising vision of the future?" How about showing some of it before you start boasting, Wachoskis? I'm tired of the boasting, because it's usually a sign a flick can't deliver.

    by cherrycola

    BTW, the poster is fucking awesome. You simply cannot compare it with anything else out there presently or recently. I'll bet a studio head or two hates it but who cares...I love it. This movie may, just MAY, redeem the brothers after matrix reloaded and revolutions.

  • Nov. 17, 2005, 1:08 a.m. CST

    by RaylanGivens

    I really dug the aicn's poster, but this poster (the ign one) is the fucking shit. I thought the trailer looked pretty faithful (despite the dagger action waves) since it looks like it has the attack on the television studio and the concentration camp liberation sequences in tact. And each poster has been progressively more "HOLY CRAP!" inducing. I fucking love this poster... hot damn!

  • Nov. 17, 2005, 4:22 a.m. CST

    by Wungolioth every one of them going to feature Natalie Portman sporting the crewcut? Might be good to push a more glamorous shot of her. I know it's integral to the story, but damn, that look is just not flattering for her IMO.

    was changed due to the fact that on 7th July four suicide bombers blew up parts of of the London underground transport system killing 52 innocent people and injuring 700 (it was on the news may have missed it while watching spongebob Squarepants or whatever). The producers deemed that promoting and releasing a movie about a terrorist blowing up London landmarks would be a bit insensitive. Have another poster...

    by Movietool

    Just to shove it up the ass of the creatively dead producers who keep trying to adapt his ideas instead of coming up with their own. I mean, really - how much did Constantine (a pretty decent movie, in my eyes) have to do with the actual comic? Or "League?" Or this one (I've never read the comic, so I can't say)? I like Moore's attitude on this - "fine, take my ideas if you can't come up with your own, but don't expect me to call a piece of shit a gold nugget." I'm actually dissapointed he's letting his royalties get distributed to the other contributors. I'd take that check with glee, myself.
