Blockbuster was a massive part of almost every millennial's life. Many of us spent Friday nights endlessly wandering the aisles of the video store, searching for the best horror movies or the newest big hits to watch while eating our big bowl of popcorn. Who doesn't remember going in to pick up the new release movie you have just been dying to see, only to find it's all rented out, and you have to wait? Then you had to remember the due date because the last thing you wanted was to be charged those pesky late fees on a late movie return. Even though we all loved Blockbuster, most of us don't know about the behind-the-scenes work that went into creating the chain.
