Movie Trailers That Should Have Been #9: The Fight Club

So what was Fight Club about? Was it a movie that grudgingly extolled the merits of facism? Is it an admonition about how feminism has eroded the primal instinct of the males in our society? Is it a warning against consumerism? A parable of how cults rob individuality rather than grant it? A warning about caffeine? A buddy film? A story about overgrown frat boys? A romance with hilariously witty dialogue?

The truth is that Fight Club is likely all of the above … and more! A certain critic named Roger Ebert, though, wished in his review that the movie was more about the latter. To quote:

If it had all continued in the vein explored in the first act, it might have become a great film.

Well, this spoof trailer The Fight Club grants Mr. Ebert his wish. What if The Fight Club was a pure rom-com with a grungy sensibility?

I’ve heard off-hand that there was a rom-com spoof trailer done by the folks behind the Fight Club movie. It makes sense: it goes along with the movie’s theme of pranks and trickery. I don’t know if this is the one, though. My only version of the Fight Club is the standard version, not the nifty super-duper deluxe set. If this is a real movie trailer for the Fight Club movie, let me know.
