What’s inside the FedEx package that Chuck Noland never opens during all those years stranded on that island?
BEST EXPLANATION: Narratively speaking, the package serves as a nifty framing device: the movie opens with a woman handing it to a FedEx deliveryman—and ends with Chuck finally returning the box to the Texas studio of its sender. And it kinda works as a nice symbol: the angel wings drawn on the box perhaps representing Chuck’s hope of a miraculous rescue.
While its clear the package’s contents are meant to remain unknown, director Robert Zemeckis once (jokingly) claimed it was a waterproof, solar-powered satellite phone.
