It's already been available for import from Germany for some time now.

Ah, you're right. I had completely forgotten about the import. Well, with little info posted... I had to ask.

This has got to be one of my favorite movies.

Hopefully they did a new transfer for this 10th anniversary. I have the German version and it's pretty unimpressive.

Yeap, this is fine for now, so I can wait.

p.s. speaking of D-Theater, so when will say 'Alien' or 'Moulin Rouge' be released?

The first rule of Fight Club on Blu Ray is "you don't talk about fight club on Blu Ray."


Great news. This is a favorite of mine also.

Read the book. I like the movie, but the book suggests a different meaning for what it's about (even though much of the movie is straight out of the book), and I think the book is better. YMMV.

Here's a great line from the book that I don't think is in the movie:

Marla comes in the back door with a canister of lye flakes. "At the store, they have one-hundred-percent-recycled toilet paper," Marla says. "The worst job in the whole world must be recycling toilet paper."

I've read the book and it is enjoyable, but I like the movie more.

Amazon doesn't have a date yet - the preorder just says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives."

Not to put a damper on the party, but where is the source of this news? I'm not seeing it anywhere. Not that I don't trust the OP, I just don't want to get my hopes up yet.

That's what it says now. That ain't what it said before. I got the date specifically from Amazon over the weekend.

this needs to be true. i'm getting so sick of all of the terrible movies that keep coming out before gems like fight club. i believe october would be the 10th anniversary, so that makes it seem more likely.
