V for Vendetta

Trivia: In the scene where Evey gets her hair cut, it was Natalie Portman's real hair they cut. They had only one shot to capture that scene, and everybody was quite nervous if the scene would turn out usable.

Trivia: When V is trying to get to the subway train he drags himself along the tile wall because he is injured. Look at the wall and you'll see a 'V' in blood.

Trivia: The scene with the dominoes was achieved completely physically. Weijers Domino Productions from the Netherlands took three days to set up 22 000 dominoes for the scene and actually had to do it twice because of issues with the camera angles the first time around.

Trivia: The flashback in which V escapes from the flaming Larkhill facility was done in-camera with CG only for touchups because of cost issues. Stuntman Chad Stahelski wore only a G-string and cooling gel to protect him from the flames while performing the stunt.

Trivia: Allegedly most of the books in V's Shadow Gallery are actually pulp romance novels, fishing manuals and technical journals, hence why they're all arranged so none of the spines are visible.

Audio problem: When V says that he has never danced to any of the songs on his jukebox, a song is playing in the background, yet there is no record seen playing on the jukebox. This occurs even after V presses the button to activate the song.

More quotes from V for Vendetta

Question: Was any explanation ever given for why V's signature flower was changed to the Scarlet Carson for the movie when in the graphic novel it's the Violet Carson (keeping in tone with his obsession with the letter V)? It doesn't seem to serve any plot significance so I'm rather puzzled why they felt a modification was necessary.

Answer: The Violet Carson is an uncommon rose, and the requirement to frequently require a rose in a state of perfect bloom meant that production crew were required to purchase hundreds of roses during the course of production. As such, they chose to go with a more common rose, the Grand Prix, which they renamed to the fictional Scarlet Carson to tie the name in to the original. There's also the point that the Violet Carson is named after a real person, a British actress who passed away in 1983. Her family might well not appreciate having her name prominently associated with a serial killer anti-hero in a major Hollywood movie.
