    Does anyone remember how to get to the hidden contents of the Fed Ex package in Castaway? I ran a search throughout the HTF and couldn't find anything.

    Thanks for the help.

    Kevin, keep in mind that the reveal of the FedEx contents is intended as a joke. I've seen posts on here before where people thought Zemeckis was serious.

    The actual contents of the FedEx package:



    If you watch the opening to the film, you see the ranch with the wings symbol. You see a package with "wings" travel to another country to be received by a man. This man is married but having an affair. His wife sent out a divorce package to him.

    What was going back was the package that Chuck Noland refused to open. Inside that package was a reconcilation "gift" of some sort that never made it home in time.

    Ahhh, thanks fellas. That dvdeastereggs site is a good one. I knew that it was supposed to be a joke from Zemeckis, I just couldn't remember how to access it.
