DALLAS // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Blockbuster Inc. (NYSE: BBI) (NYSE: BBI.B) is giving students another reason to work hard in the classroom. Through the "Good Grades, Free Rental" program, children in kindergarten through 12th grade who earn an A or B average on their report cards can head to participating BLOCKBUSTER® stores nationwide to receive a free BLOCKBUSTER Favorites® movie rental.

"Blockbuster wants to help show students one of life's great lessons: hard work has its rewards," said Justin Lewis, chief marketing officer for Blockbuster.
