Amarillo, Texas (PRWEB) March 26, 2010
Be the first to rent or buy Warner Bros. releases The Blind Side(available now) and Sherlock Holmes (available Tuesday, March 30th) at all Hastings Entertainment stores. Every Hastings store has at least 100 copies to rent and there are plenty of copies if customers want to own one. According to a Wall Street Journal article from Feb 28, 2010, “Redbox customers won’t be able to rent new Warner Bros. DVDs until 28 days after their release.”
“Movie fans have lined up to get The Blind Side and are eagerly awaiting Sherlock Holmes this coming Tuesday,” said Victor Fuentes, Vice President of Movies, Books and Electronics at Hastings. “It’s really important for Hastings to offer The Blind Side and Sherlock Holmes DVDs and Blu-Rays when the doors open on release day. We take great pride in having a huge movie selection on day one and we know our customers expect the latest releases in our movie departments every week,” said Fuentes.
