Blockbuster Offers 'Bobby' Rental Exclusive10 Apr, 2007 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Through its exclusive agreement with The Weinstein Co., Blockbuster will offer the 20-minute featurette "The Life & Times of Robert F. Kennedy” on rental DVDs of the film Bobby, which hit shelves April 10 from Genius Products.
The bonus featurette underscores the younger Kennedy's championing of civil rights causes with commentaries from director Emilio Estevez, his father, Martin Sheen, and Harry Belafonte.
Bobby, which stars Anthony Hopkins, Demi Moore, Sharon Stone, Elijah Wood, Lindsey Lohan, William H. Macy, Helen Hunt and Laurence Fishburne, among others, revisits the night Kennedy was assassinated at The Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles in 1968.
Future Blockbuster/Weinstein Co. rental exclusives include Miss Potter, with Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor; the Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez double feature Grindhouse, the animated family film Arthur & The Invisibles, and Stephen King's hotel-room thriller 1408, starring John Cusack.
