Synopsis

Box set containing two popular action movies. 'Mr and Mrs Smith' (2005) stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as John and Jane Smith, a suburban couple whose marriage has started to go a bit stale after five or six years. Both wish for more excitement in their relationship, but as it happens, each of them is finding plenty of thrills elsewhere. Both Jane and John are world-class assassins who will take on perilous missions for the right price, but neither is aware of the other's secret life - Jane thinks her husband runs a successful construction company, and John believes his wife works on Wall Street. However, when John and Jane are both assigned to take out the same target, one Benjamin Danz (Adam Brody), they become aware of each other's secret lives, and suddenly both their careers and their marriage go through some dramatic and potentially deadly changes. 'Fight Club' (1999) is adapted from Chuck Palahniuk's novel and explores themes of masculinity and violence in contemporary society. Edward Norton stars as 'Jack', a bored insomniac, determined to inject some excitement into his life. He meets Tyler Durden (Pitt), a charismatic soap salesman who believes that the only way to escape the banality of modern existence is through violence. To these ends, Jack and Tyler set up 'Fight Clubs', where men can engage in brutal bare-knuckle fights. However, friction develops between the two men when they both become rivals for the attentions of Marla (Helena Bonham-Carter).
