One of the most iconic films in 1999 is the US film ” Fight Club “but in an interesting development, the ending has been removed for viewers in China and replaced by a screen with a message saying the authorities won.
The original ending saw Edward Norton’s narrator killing his imaginary alter-ego Tyler Durden, played by Brad Pitt before bombs destroyed buildings in the climax to a subversive plot to reorder society, dubbed Project Mayhem.
In China, before the explosions, a message now says the police foiled the plot, arrested the criminals and sent Durden to a “lunatic asylum”.
The new finale tells viewers that through the clue provided by Tyler, the police rapidly figured out the whole plan and arrested all criminals, successfully preventing the bomb from exploding.
It further says after the trial, Tyler was sent to lunatic asylum receiving psychological treatment. He was discharged from the hospital in 2012
