It's actually a silhouette of a vase.

Sam Rockwell! In a movie that more than 10 people might see? Well, maybe not. Why isn't Sam Rockwell more famous?

Yay! Choke was great! Or, was that Naked. It might have been Invisible Monsters. Or, wait, Lullaby? I don't know, it's hard to tell because all his books are the same.

"It's actually a silhouette of a vase."

That is one of the best comments I have ever read. A few too many psychology classes.

whats funny is that if it were a woman with a man in her mouth it would be a whole different story . . .

@Julian: You are correct. If it was a woman with a man in her mouth it would be a story about a woman whose mother(/father) tells her she is the last descendent of Christ and who fakes choking in restaurants and is befriended by a man who works in a mental institution, only spoiler, ***'* *** *** ** ** ******** * *******.

I appreciate that we can combine launch-era Ipod ads with relevance-era Chuck Pahlaniuk to create a daring blend of cutting-edge circa 2001.

I like Chuck Palahniuk's work but hated this book. If the movie is anything like the book, it'll all be put together in the last five minutes of the movie with every loose end being tied at once. Still, I'm going to go see this because Sam Rockwell's pretty awesome.

And the poster looks like a bunny and a chicken.

yay! i can't wait. i thought choke was great!!! hope they do survivor next!

Chuck Palahniuk's works never cease to amaze me. Though the portrayal of Fight Club with Edward Norton and Brad Pitt was spectactular, it still didn't meet my standards to the book.

Though I was hoping Invisible Monsters would have been the next film adaptation, there's nothing stopping me from seeing Choke. It was an alright read.
