The Wachowski Brothers film adaptation of Alan Moore's comic hits theaters and IMAX March 17.

The official movie Web site has posted a Berlin press conference conducted with director James McTeigue, producer Joel Silver and actors Natalie Portman, Stephen Rea, Hugo Weaving and John Hurt. View videos and photos here. You can also view Reuters’ clips from the interviews and movies here.

Here's how the movie is described: "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 life-and-death 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 cruelty and corruption."

Meanwhile, Portman talked with Comic Book Resources about her role in the film.
"I read the comic after I read the script and I I really think it's an action movie and a graphic novel that talk, that make you think a lot about violence, how we categorize violence, how we differentiate between state violence and individual violence, and how we define terrorism and all of that, and I think it deals with really relevant issues and after I read it, it just made me think so much about all of my pre-conceived ideas about all of these topics," she told the fan site.
