Fight Club: 10th Anniversary Edition out on Blu-ray this month
10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION - FOR THE FIRST TIME ON BLU-RAY
Definitive Version of Fight Club, Remastered Frame-by-Frame by Director David Fincher and Featuring Knock Out Performances From Oscar Nominee Brad Pitt And Golden Globe Winner Edward Norton, Fight Club Scuffles Onto Blu-ray Disc on 23rd November From Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned. Clever, savagely witty and dark, Fight Club: 10th Anniversary Edition, arrives on Blu-ray on 23rd November from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Acclaimed filmmaker and Academy Award nominee David Fincher (Se7en, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) spent hours analyzing every shot in his cult classic, making painstaking alterations to almost every frame for this ultimate high-definition release.
Based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk (Choke), Fight Club is a pitch-black comedy that follows a ticking-time-bomb insomniac (Edward Norton; The Incredible Hulk) seeking an escape from his mundane existence and white-collar job in American society. Finding solace only in feigning terminal illness and attending support groups, he meets the feisty chain-smoking vixen Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter; Terminator: Salvation; Harry Potter films) who immediately gets under his skin with her unconventional outlook on life.
Upon returning from a business trip, he stumbles upon a more intriguing character, the subversive soap salesman, Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt; Mr. and Mrs. Smith). The two quickly become friends, bonding over a mutual disgust for corporate hypocrisy and find release in an eccentric, shocking new form of therapy - Fight Club. A brutal, bare-knuckle underground secret society run by the premise that men are only able to find freedom when they are willing to risk death, the club escalates to a whole other level, where the boxing matches and harmless pranks soon lead to an out-of-control spiral full of twists and turns towards oblivion and ironically, self-discovery.
The Fight Club: 10th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray is packed full of punches with all-new bonus materials including two interactive featurettes - "A Hit In The Ear: Ren Klyce and the Sound Design of
Fight Club" which allows users to remix four key scenes themselves with the help of
Oscar-nominated sound designer Ren Klyce; and "Insomniac Mode: I Am Jack's Search Index," giving viewers the ability to access any part of the disc's extensive bonus material via interactive tools.
The Blu-ray also features behind-the-scenes with Fincher, Pitt and Norton as they accept the Guy Movie Hall of Fame honor for Fight Club at SPIKE TV'S 2009 GUYS CHOICE Awards, commentary by David Fincher, Chuck Palahniuk, Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter,
"Welcome To Fight Club" featurette, seven deleted scenes, a music video, photo gallery and much more.
Fight Club has received numerous accolades over the years - listed as one of the "50 Best Guy Movies of All Time" by Men's Journal in 2003; the quote "The first rule of Fight Club is you don't talk about Fight Club" was voted #27 of "The 100 Greatest Movie Lines" by Premiere in 2007; Empire readers voted the film as the ninth and eighth greatest releases of all time in 2004 and 2006, respectively; and it received the "Guy Movie Hall of Fame" honour at the 2009 Spike TV Awards. The DVD itself is one of the top-performing titles of all time.
A lonely, isolated thirty-something young professional in an unidentified, semi-stylized city, seeks an escape from his ordinary life with the help of a devious soap salesman. They find their release from the prison of reality through underground fight clubs, where men can be what the world denies them.
