UPDATED: Fight Club is…well I can’t really tell you about. The rules

Posted by LiveFor on November 12, 2009

fightclubFirst Rule: You do not talk about Fight Club.

Second Rule: You do not talk about Fight Club.

Third Rule: When someone says “Stop” or goes limp, the fight is over.

Fourth Rule: Only two guys to a fight.

Fifth Rule: One fight at a time.

Sixth Rule: No shirts, no shoes.

Seventh Rule: Fights go on as long as they have to.

Eighth Rule: If this is your first night at Fight Club, you have to fight…

Okay, okay. I’ll tell you. Where’s the harm.

The awesome David Fincher directed, Fight Club, is on its way to punch you in the neck Blu-Ray style. It is due out on 23rd November here in the UK and the 17th over in the USA.

I still remember when I first watched it with my good mate Del and just being amazed by it all, especially the bit…well if you’ve seen it you know. If you haven’t seen it, watch it. Then watch it again.

Brad Pitt and Edward Norton just owned the screen.

If only the Ferris Bueller Tyler Durden theory really worked.

Okay, here is what is on the Blu-Ray:
# New HD Master Supervised step-by-step by director David Fincher
# Exclusive to Blu-Ray:
# A Hit in the Ear: Ren Klyce and the Sound Design of Fight Club
# An interactive experience introduced by the sound designer Ren Klyce, in which the user can mix the sounds of selected scenes of the movie.
# Insomnia Mode: I am Jack’s search Index
# A new navigation mode, that allows the user to tag any topics during the movie and access to all content available in the disc that refers to the tagged topic.
# Flogging Fight Club
# Backstage at the Spike TV Awards: Hangout with Brad Pitt & Edward Norton in the Green Room shortly after being inducted into the Spike TV ‘Guy Movie Hall of Fame’.

Turns out that Fincher thought it would be funny to use the menu from a sweet bubble-gum romance – Never Been Kissed – the farthest possible thing from the very dark “Fight Club” — that was a much bigger box office success when both films were released in 1999. Barrymore’s inexpensive comedy grossed more in U.S., on initial release. Of course, “Fight Club” has developed a loyal and vocal fan following over the past decade, and it is listed in the top 10 of Total Film’s and Empire magazine’s Greatest Films of All Time lists.

UPDATE:You can see the film for free on the big screen next Tuesday at midnight but only if you like in LA or New York. If you are in NYC click here.  If you want to join Project Mayhem in Los Angeles click here.
