Google the words “Netflix” and “Blockbuster” together and you’ll learn how the latter, once-invincible, major video chain turned down Netflix’s offer to be its streaming provider 18 years ago.
But if you want to stream Blockbuster, a 2018 French-language, English-subtitled romantic comedy debuting tomorrow, January 24, avoid Google and go straight to Netflix’s Blockbuster page.
Non-Netflix subscribers who want to see an English-subtitled trailer for the film should similarly avoid YouTube and head to that same Netflix page.
For a non-subtitled French-language trailer, however, stay right here:
The film synopsis? “Dumped over a video he made to amuse his ailing dad, a heartsick Jeremy [Syrus Shahidi] hatches an elaborate scheme to win back his superhero-loving girlfriend Lola [Charlotte Gabris].”
Blockbuster, Netflix’s first original feature film released in France, was produced by Virginie Films and Rosebud Entertainment Pictures, and directed by July Hygreck.
