With football season upon us, I couldn’t help but think of the number seven (touchdown + extra point) so I’ve gathered three alternative posters for David Fincher‘s moody crime thriller from 1995, “Seven“. Director Fincher, who stated, “I thought I’d rather die of colon cancer than do another movie” after the frustrations of filming “Alien 3“, agreed to helm the film after being sent the “wrong” script from New Line Cinema. They accidentally sent him the original script which included the now famous head-in-the-box ending – an ending New Line had changed to a more traditional detective thriller ending. Fincher and Brad Pitt fought for the original ending and eventually won out.

See you next week…
This week’s movie poster is a REDUX of David Fincher’s dark comic drama, “Fight Club” illustrated by freelance artist Thodoris Laourdekis. The film, which starred Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter, and an unforgettable Brad Pitt, was based on a novel of the same name by Chuck Palahniuk.
Did You Know? Russell Crowe was considered to play Tyler Durden and actually met with a producer to discuss the part, but it was Brad Pitt who ended up with the role, adding $17.5 million to his bank account in the process. Edward Norton was cast by Fincher because of his performance in The People Vs. Larry Flynt, and took the studio’s offer of $2.5 million. It’s good to be the star, yes?
