First fight scene, without Tyler

This just came out a few days ago, weirdly coinciding with my whole little obsession with Fight Club:

If you haven't seen David Fincher's movie Fight Club, there will be spoilers below. Also, go see it. Right now. We mean it.

Now that that's out of the way, here's a treat for movie fans: a video/VFX guy called Richard Trammell has digitally removed Tyler Durden from the legendary scene in which The Narrator fights with Tyler Durden for the first time.

Of course, this really makes sense because, as we find out later in the movie, Tyler Durden doesn't actually exist and The Narrator really is hitting himself in that empty parking lot.

Without Durden visible, the scene becomes even more eerie than the original, and makes us wonder what the movie would look like if someone completely removed Durden from all scenes.

He's the man.
