Rejoice, Disillusioned White Dudes! Fight Club’s Getting a Graphic Novel Sequel
If the Star Wars prequels taught us anything, it's that people love it when their favorite film universes get rebooted with annoying tiny kids in them, right? Of course they do! That's probably why Chuck Palahniuk recently revealed that he'll be returning to his 1996 novel Fight Club to tell the story of Jack and Marla's son -- but from the point of view of Tyler Durden. Yay?Read on...
Silicon Valley Fight Club
If Tyler Durden was a software engineer instead of a projectionist (or, if Michael Bolton directed his rage towards humans, and not copiers) the Fight Club that we love to pretend to emulate would probably resemble this.

The First Rule Of Ferris Club Is You Do Watch This TrailerFor those of you who don't know, there was a theory developed in recent years that in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Ferris is merely a figment of Cameron's imagination, designed to help him break out of his reserved shell and actually live a little. The obvious comparison here is to Fight Club, and so the theory has been nicknamed The Ferris Bueller Fight Club Theory. Now, it seems unlikely that this is was intended the case, though it holds up surprisingly well with the content of the film. That said, if the initial trailer for Bueller had looked more like this video, then the crackpot idea would be far more than just a theory. Presented with apologies to David Fincher and John Hughes, Ferris Club:Read on...
