It seems like our wildest 90’s dreams have finally come true—Blockbuster has opened up another store in London’s Shoreditch neighborhood. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to rent your favorite classics like Saving Private Ryan or Good Will Hunting. The only title available in the entire Blockbuster, in fact, is Deadpool 2.

In a two-day nostalgia-driven marketing tactic, the pop-up store will be giving away exactly 1,989 copies of the anti-hero’s sequel to commemorate the year the first Blockbuster opened in London.



Have your old Blockbuster card on hand? You’ll receive an authentic VHS case for Deadpool 2 and a free digital download code for the movie. Without an original Blockbuster card, though, you’ll have to attempt to impress cashiers with your own “superpowers” to try and receive a Superhero Edition card and copy of the movie to take home.

After closing two of its remaining stores in July, Blockbuster only has one store left operating in the U.S. This may be your last chance to enter through the doors of the once popular rental giant. If you miss the good ol’ days of watching your favorite flicks pre-streaming services, you better act fast because this London Blockbuster will only be open for two days: September 17 and 18.
