Clash of the Titans Available at BLOCKBUSTER Franchise: 28 Days Before Some Other Outlets

Blockbuster's 28-Day Availability Advantage Allows Customers to Rent New Releases Immediately

DALLAS // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Blockbuster Inc. (Pink Sheets: BLOKA) today announced availability of the movie, Clash of the Titans, in BLOCKBUSTER® stores and from BLOCKBUSTER By Mail a full four weeks before it will be available through some competitors. Blockbuster's early advantage reflects its ongoing agreement with Warner Bros to provide customers with the opportunity to rent hit movies the day they are released on DVD. The movie will also be available from BLOCKBUSTER On Demand® on the release date.

"Blockbuster is thrilled to be able to give our customers immediate access to Clash of the Titans. Our four-week advance over key competitors reiterates to our customers that Blockbuster is a leading multichannel provider of home and mobile entertainment. This is possible because of our long-standing business relationships with the major studios including Warner Bros," said James W. Keyes, chairman and chief executive officer, Blockbuster Inc.

Starring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, and directed by Louis Leterrie, Clash of the Titans brings Greek mythology to life with the ultimate battle between man and gods. Perseus, the mortal son of Zeus, fights to save his family from the dark god of the underworld, Hades. Perseus struggles to accept his power as a god, while he leads a mission to stop Hades before he can seize power from Zeus and unleash hell on earth.

"Our customers don't have to wait weeks or years to see new releases. Clash of the Titans is the latest example of our ability to deliver fresh content that can be viewed anytime, anywhere. That means choice to access entertainment through a BLOCKBUSTER retail store, BLOCKBUSTER Express® kiosk, BLOCKBUSTER By Mail, or BLOCKBUSTER On Demand which provides movies over the internet directly to more than 80 models of Blu-ray Players, HDTVs, Blu-ray Home Theater Systems, DVRs and smart phones including T-Mobile's HTC HD2 and Verizon's Droid X," said Keyes.

Blockbuster offers customers early availability of approximately 50 percent of the theatrical new releases as compared to key competitors including box office hits like Sherlock Holmes, Tooth Fairy, Valentine's Day, and Invictus, and the highest grossing film of all-time, Avatar.
