Tomorrow will mark the fifteen years since “Fight Club” landed in theaters, stirring up controversy while confirming that David Fincher —coming off “Se7en” and “The Game“— was one of the most risk-taking filmmakers in American cinema.

Today, Screen Junkies take on the movie via their Honest Trailer outlet, and they make few nitpicks to the movie. They remind us the 1999 film was coming at the tail end of a decade where guys mired in dull jobs and soul-crushing domestic lives was becoming a common theme. So it wasn’t necessarily anything new. And the trailer also reminds us that the allegedly anti-corporate film was financed by a major studio, and launched a spin-off video game and graphic novel sequel among other things.
