NEW YORK (
Blockbuster's (BLOAQ.PK) sale of the company has hit a roadblock, as a judge called the $290 million "stalking horse" bid, "aggressive."
The offer proposed by Cobalt Video, a limited liability company formed by funds managed by Monarch Alternative Capital, Owl Creek Asset Management, Stonehill Capital Management and Värde Partners, is being opposed by 45 creditors, including
Walt Disney(DIS - Get Report), Universal Studios,
Yahoo(YHOO - Get Report) and a committee of unsecured creditors.
All of the creditors, except for Summit Distributors, the movie studio that produces the
Twilight movies, agreed to a standstill on their motions to reclaim assets or liquidate the company. Their oppositions will be heard at a hearing on March 10.
Separately, movie studios made up of
Paramount Home Entertainment,
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment,
Universal Studios Home Entertainment and
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment also formed an ad hoc committee to represent their interests, according to court documents filed on Wednesday.
