Paramount at the Movies Presents: Fight Club [R]

Movies | 08/25/2023 | 8:00PM

1999 | R | Runtime: 139 minutes

In this adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s 1998 novel, Brad Pitt stars as Tyler Durden, a sociopath filled with anarchic rage, who organizes an underground organization of “fight clubs.” These clubs, in which young men with white-collar jobs engage in no-holds-barred bouts, spread across the city. But Tyler has far more insidious plans — he enlists the aid of his unassertive friend, Jack (Edward Norton), to destroy conventional “society” through a deadly series of bombings. When Jack realizes the nightmarish and shocking truth, he fights to bring Tyler down.

Did you know?

  • Author Chuck Palahniuk has stated that he found the film to be an improvement on his novel.
  • (at around 34 mins) When The Narrator hits Tyler Durden in the ear, Edward Norton actually did hit Brad Pitt in the ear. He was originally going to fake hit him, but before the scene, director David Fincher pulled Norton aside and told him to hit him in the ear. After Norton hit him in the scene, you can see him smiling and laughing while Pitt is hurting and swearing.
  • During the shooting of the film, Helena Bonham Carter insisted that her makeup artist (Julie Pearce) apply all of her eye makeup with her left hand, because Bonham-Carter felt that Marla was not a person who would be particularly skilled at (or concerned with) correctly applying makeup.
