In possibly the best home video prank since the Elite Night of the
Living Dead disc started up with a scratched-up print and out of sync music
before revealing the beautiful new restoration, the new Fight Club
Blu-Ray doesn't even start up with the movie at all. Pop the disc in your
blu-ray player and this is the menu that will pop up-
Terrifying, no? Especially for the guys who absolutely don't get the film
and somehow see it as machismo fantasy- it's going to ruin their day. Of course,
after a few seconds the menu disappears and the real one pops up. Kudos to David
Fincher for messing with his fans like that. Drew Barrymore apparently gave the
ok to her good pal Edward Norton for the joke, and Fox implored reviewers not to
reveal it before release this Tuesday.
I can't really think of a better prank for someone to pull. I think a know a few guys who would throw the Blu-Ray player out the window when they saw that. Nice one, Fincher.
