Fight Club at 15: David Fincher Is Coming to Comic-Con!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

In one of the bigger surprises for this year’s Comic-Con, it was announced that David Fincher will be at the San Diego pop culture fest this year for a very special panel on Saturday, July 26 to talk about his film that went from cult favorite to Hollywood classic. It will be 15 years ago this October that the revolutionary film Fight Club stunned audiences.

Brad Pitt in Fight Club

Fincher has more than set himself apart as a filmmaker, from Se7en through The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to what we’ve seen so far from the Gone Girl trailer. But for his fans, Fight Club holds an incredibly special place.

Movie Fanatic will be there to bring you all the details as Fincher convenes a special panel to talk about Fight Club and how he brought the un-filmable Chuck Palahnuik novel to life, And word is he will have “special guests.”

Sure, one might think that Edward Norton or Brad Pitt would be there. But, for our money, we would die a geek death if Palahnuik showed up and he and Fincher talked about bringing the power of that novel to the big screen.

Watch Fight Club online, relive those Fight Club quotes and prepare to get excited to delve deeper into a filmmaking masterpiece. We will bring you our full report from the panel as soon as the panel concludes. 

I guess the take-away here is after 15 years, it is finally okay to talk about Fight Club.
