Fight Club is just about the definition of 'cult classic', and despite a relatively poor box-office showing in 1999 and plenty of controversy surrounding its themes, the adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel is beloved by rebels, outcasts, and pretty much anyone else who enjoys a good punch-up. So, square up as we explain exactly how to watch Fight Club online from anywhere.
Released: October 15, 1999
Director: David Fincher
Cast: Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, Helena Bonham Carter, Meat Loaf, Jared Leto
Run time: 2h19m
Perfectly-cast Edward Norton stars as the unnamed Narrator, a chronic insomniac dissatisfied with his life who flits between support groups for various different ailments. After meeting Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter), the Narrator bumps into the charismatic Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). They have a fight outside a bar. They like it.
From there on, the Fight Club is born, and with the help of recently passed Meat Loaf's Bob Paulson and a young Jared Leto, things go, quite predictably, a little too far. Despite the movie having one of the wildest and best-known twists in cinema, though, we won't be ruining that one – just in case.
Endlessly quotable – have you found the right time to say that you don't want to die without any scars? – and oozing toxic machismo, Fight Club is the kind of film that deserves a rewatch once in a while.
However, viewing options around the world are somewhat varied, so below we're going to outlining, region-by-region, how to watch Fight Club online anywhere in the world.

Can I watch Fight Club on Netflix?
The answer to that is yes – in some locations. If you're in the UK or Australia, then you can watch Fight Club on Netflix. However, in the US, Canada, and elsewhere in the world, Fight Club is not available on Netflix, and is hosted on a number of other streaming services.
Don't despair, though. If you've got a Netflix account and you live in the US, for example, just follow our tips below on how to watch Fight Club and plenty more on Netflix without having to take the next flight to London.
How to watch Fight Club from outside your country
If you're away from home, regional restrictions will prevent you from streaming content from your usual streaming platform – quite possibly stopping you from watching Fight Club on the streaming service you're accustomed to.
Thankfully, the solution is pretty simple. Downloading a VPN will let you change your IP address – meaning you can connect to a server based back home and watch geo-blocked content on sites like Netflix no matter where you are.
