V for Vendetta, the 2006 dystopian political action film, is now available for audiences to bring home on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.
The 4K UHD release of the film comes from a new scan of the original camera negative. In addition, three new bonus features are on the 4K UHD disc. All of the previous bonus content are on the Blu-ray.
Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V for Vendetta tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey (Portman) who is rescued from a dire situation by a masked vigilante (Weaving) known only as “V.” Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he detonates two London landmarks and takes over the government-controlled airwaves, urging 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 plot to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with fear, cruelty and corruption.
