Movie Vault Attends The Expendables Premiere

August 10, 2010 Posted by Tyler Cruz

Last night,’s resident video reporter Claire Bueno caught up with Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, and Jason Statham at The Expendables premiere.

This marks Movie Vault’s 4th video footage at a premiere. Next week, we will be interviewing Angelina Jolie (and possibly Brad Pitt) at the Salt premiere in the UK.

New Features and Improvements

I’ve been continuing to work on ever since I launched the massive revamp of the site 9 months ago. I don’t want it to fall into disrepair or neglect like before and so am constantly adding new features, making improvements on existing areas of the site, and continuing to add great content to the site.

I recently had a number of changes made, improving some of the administrative and staff functions as well as adding and implementing a lot of social media into the site. I created a Facebook page and had Interberry add “Like” buttons on our news and reviews, added a “Get News by E-mail” feature, and even had Interberry convert our news to an RSS format so that I could set up a Feedburner account and offer RSS for our news.

Please feel free to join’s various social media outlets, or at least “Like” our Facebook page:


My next plan for is to start sending out regular newsletters to our members who did not opt-out of receiving them, which is 1,800 and growing. The newsletters will probably go out twice a month and will contain a summary of what’s new on the site as well as a small advertisement plugging a recently released movie or TV season on DVD/Blu-Ray from Amazon.

In addition, I plan to also start sending out mailings to the double opt-in “partners” newsletter, which is a small list at only 100, but is growing and the users specifically requested to receive movie-related offers, so the conversion rate should be fairly high.

I am also investing a lot into SEO for the site. So far the results have been relatively decent, but I saw a small setback during this past week, so we’ll have to wait and see how things progress over the next month.

The next major thing I would like to do for the site is to acquire the non-dashed domain name, but I’m having trouble finding any contact information for the current owners since it’s a private WHOIS registration and the company’s main website has been down for a few months as well…

So, what do you think about Do you have any ideas or suggestions on how I could improve the site or grow traffic to it?

  1. The best thing about movie vault is the sense of community you get. You can discuss your favorite movies with other movie lovers and hear what films other people rank as the best ever. Movie reviews can cover anything from new releases to old classic films that have been out on DVD for ages. The forums provide you a place where you can basically chat about movies at any time of the day or night with people who care about film as much as you do.

    Hey Tyler!

    What about buying without the “-“?

    I think you lose a lot of visitors that cant find you again!

    Hi Tyler, what about your projects like pokerforums (you could add a magazine part and earn more commissions for poker-affiliate links) and (you could add a content part)

    i think there projects need your attention, too!

    best wishes from hamburg, germany!

    Why not send a letter to that P.O. Box that’s listed in the WHOIS. Then it’ll get to the guy sooner or later. Include a good offer in it–or at least an offer that is good in your opinion–and I’m sure he’ll snag. But, because you own, he’s going to want more. When the .net, .org, and hyphen names get bought out, it means he can charge more.

  6. Wesley says:

    Just sent you a list of suggestions via your contact form.. Some quite serious, most aren’t. But I guess you can keep the programmers busy with some of those 🙂

    Hope you like them!

  10. I haven’t seen it. Thanks for updating, I love to see all the Hollywood flicks. Very soon gonna watch it. It looking a awesome movie, I just watched salt and get stunned with Angelina’s performance.

  11. I certainly think it turned out better that the site’s sale didnt go through when you had on sale a while ago.

    Do you still have plans on selling the site? or do you wana keep it for another few years or so?

  15. Good looking site. I’m sure you are going to get some great suggesstions. The Expendables movie looks pretty interesting too.

  16. Benny says:

    Wow being able to be at a movie premiere and working it is awesome. How do the correspondents for Movie Vault get to be chosen to do that?

    • Andrew says:

      im pretty sure its some freelance person who does one series of interviews and then “brands” it for several different places, or something like that. its not a staffer they fly out there or anything. it doesnt really say anything about the sites size.

  17. used tires says:
