The blockbuster website is sending fans into a frenzy over a possible comeback

The Blockbuster website now has an interesting message that’s got fans buzzing.

WASHINGTON — Social media and the internet are hoping for a potential comeback for the blockbuster video, but it’s probably a good idea to curb those expectations.

A burst of nostalgia for the once-dominant video rental chain rose this week as fans discovered its site. Blockbuster.comShe was live and prominently carried the phrase, “We’re working on rewinding your film.”

Fans on social media immediately began speculating that Blockbuster Video, which once had 9,000 stores nationwide, could make a big comeback or do… something? No one seems to know for sure, and the vague wording on the site can mean all sorts of possibilities.

It’s important to note that the site didn’t suddenly come back online. The phrase “We’re working on rewinding your movie” has been around since at least last November, according to the Wayback Machine Internet Archive.

Nobody can imagine what’s really going on. So let’s rewind a bit. dish network acquired the Blockbuster brand in 2011 and has reportedly not responded to requests for comment on recent website speculation.

However, the decline of the franchise is well documented. Netflix started out with DVDs shipped right to customers’ doorsteps. Then came streaming services. Now there remains only one of the last blockbuster stores in the world, located in Bend, Oregon. The “last blockbuster” hasn’t posted anything out of the ordinary on his social media accounts lately.

For what it’s worth, the official Blockbuster Twitter account joked last week about a “new business idea” it had.

“We will come back as a bank and use VHS and DVDs as currency. Time to visit your mother.” the account tweeted.
