Years after the video rental franchise that once boasted more than 6,000 stores across the USA shuttered a lot of them, Blockbuster has reportedly been able to stay open in Alaska due to spottier internet service there, making it harder to stream movies on services like Netflix.
"If only there were a fun movie themed way for them to draw people in", Oliver said.
A jockstrap from the film Cinderella Man at Russell Crowe's Art of Divorce auction. Even that sentence is absolutely incredible to say out loud.
The HBO show also bought Crowe's director chair from American Gangster, the vest he wore in Les Miserables, and a hood he wore in Robin Hood. The bad news is, we didn't do it. "I'm sorry", he said, before a pause.

Severe storms risk on Sunday PM

The store's General Manager Kevin Daymunde told Hollywood Reporter he had no idea Oliver's team would do that but that he would be "very honoured to showcase that collection".
The prankster revealed he spent $7,000 on the odd memorabilia item during his weekly show Last Week Tonight on Sunday and explained he was sending it to a Blockbuster store in Anchorage, hoping the interest will keep the place open.
"People have been calling and coming in, wanting to know when it will all be here ..." There are some remaining holdouts in OR and Alaska, with one of the first ever Blockbusters recently shutting down in Texas.
"We didn't just get a jockstrap".
In case you missed it, Crowe recently auctioned off a bunch of his old crap after finalising his divorce from ex-wife Danielle Spencer.
