Something is up with the classic Blockbuster Video brand like the official site and its social media accounts have been reactivated. Blockbuster Video is owned by Dish Network and nothing has happened since it met its demise.
If you go to the website, you get the classic log with a caption that reads: “Please be kind while we rewind” and “We’re working on rewinding your movie.” There’s really nothing else to go from, no other details have been shared, but something is definitely happening, we’ll just have to wait and see what the fuss is about.
At one point, Blockbuster had over 9,000 locations, but it filed for bankruptcy in 2010, and by 2014, virtually all of the chain’s corporate stores had closed, and now only one was left alive in Bend, Oregon. There’s a documentary about that shop.
I’m not sure what will happen, but it’s safe to say they won’t be reopening any video stores. Perhaps it will be another attempt at a streaming service? They teased something like this about a year ago.
I have no idea! It might not even be that big, but there’s definitely some hype! Let’s hope it’s something nice!
