It’s been 16 years since the release of a cult classic that has gone on to achieve not only popular acclaim, but critical as well. Fight Club is a film that dared to question not only our own ideas of freedom, but our inability to see the world for what it really is. Mostly stoner ideology if you will. I kid…I kid. But it’s impact on popular culture can’t be denied. If you were to simply walk up to a random individual and ask, “The first rule of Fight Club is…”, there is a good chance that individual will finish the statement. Some might argue that Fight Club is simply a projection of “angst-y”, white-male rage. Others might say, “Hey, it’s Brad Pitt shirtless!” But with a film this unabashedly popular, it seems only fitting that a sequel of sorts is on the way:
Some imaginary friends never go away…Ten years after starting Project Mayhem, he lives a mundane life. A kid, a wife, pills to keep his destiny at bay. But it won’t last long; the wife has seen to that. The time has come…Rize or Die.
