Clever, savagely witty and dark, Fight Club: 10th Anniversary Edition, arrives on Blu-ray Disc (BD) November 17 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Based on the book by Chuck Palahniuk (Choke), Fight Club was directed by acclaimed filmmaker and Golden Globe-nominee*** David Fincher (Se7en, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and stars Edward Norton (25th Hour, Primal Fear) and Brad Pitt (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Inglorious Basterds), whose characters bond over a mutual disgust for corporate hypocrisy and find release in an eccentric , shocking new form of therapy – Fight Club.

The Fight Club: 10th Anniversary Edition BD 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 BD 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 Fincher, Palahniuk, Pitt, Norton and Helena Bonham Carter, “Welcome To Fight Club” featurette, seven deleted scenes, a music video, photo gallery and much more.”

Synopsis: 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.
