Though the chain didn't explain why it chose to reactivate its website (which had been dormant before) with the cryptic message, Blockbuster joked about making a comeback and rebranding as a bank on March 15.

Many took to social media to express that there might be a reason to believe something big is in the works for the video rental chain.
