(PRWEB) December 5, 2007
Running for 4 weeks from 5th December 2007, Jon Voight shares his thoughts and experiences of the films he has appeared in, his career, his favourite films, who he likes to work with, what Christmas means to him and any manner of topics in a world wide exclusive blog at Blockbuster.co.uk.
This is the first time that Jon has contributed to a blog, it is not just an interview; the articles are written by the man himself. Jon has been known to offer controversial opinions in the past so we will have to see how much he reveals in his blog.
Blockbuster.co.uk is well known for being the first to offer DVD rentals for new DVD Releases and this is the ideal complement to the release of the Transformers and Bratz DVDs. Jon Voight plays a significant role in both films. He became famous by his breakout role in Midnight Cowboy over 30 years ago (1969) and has received numerous awards since then including an Oscar for the leading role in "Coming Home".
Jon has appeared in around 50 movies including - Deliverance, Heat, Mission Impossible and Pearl Harbour and he has working alongside some great names such as Ben Affleck, Nicolas Cage, Robert De Niro, Matt Damon, Danny DeVito, Dean Stockwell and Dustin Hoffman. Playing alongside Helen Mirren, he also stars in National Treasure: Book of Secrets, due for release early next year. With such a star-studded past the Jon Voight blog is bound to contain some interesting and previously unknown comments about his film career.
To mark the launch of this special blog, new subscribers using the voucher code of VOIGHT1 will be offered one month's free rental instead of the normal 2 weeks free trial, very apt for this time of year of family entertainment.
Transformers is the Sci-fi action blockbuster of the year that will appeal to everyone, having spectacular Sci-fi stunt chases and military hardware and curious mechanical objects that can be dismantled and put back together. With simple plots, noisy action and funny comments is it worth a watch.
Bratz: The Movie is the long awaited live action film of one of the most popular toylines in the world, it is a multicultural musical extravaganza, great for daughters who are followers of fashion providing glamour in high school and dwells on the importance of friendship and self expression.
Blockbuster Inc. (NYSE: BBI and BBI.B) was founded in Dallas, Texas in 1985 and is a leading global provider of in-home rental, retail movie and game entertainment.
In 20 years, Blockbuster has grown from a single video rental store to nearly 9000 company-operated and franchised stores throughout the United States, its territories and 23 other countries.
The first Blockbuster store in the UK opened in March 1989 (Walworth Road, London) and the UK is now the largest Blockbuster business outside the US, with around 700 stores and about 4.2 million member accounts.
Blockbuster's goal is to be a complete source for movies and the company is continually looking for ways to offer its customers more value, choice and convenience. To this end, in September 2002, Blockbuster UK introduced its online DVD rental service. This service has grown and now allows customers to have access to almost every DVD available in the UK.
Blockbuster.co.uk provides the latest releases and also gives its customers much more choice from classic titles, foreign films, music DVDs, interactive game DVDs, language DVDs and popular TV series.
