We've always known how much America loves easy, affordable entertainment, and today we can prove it two billion times over, said Scott Di Valerio, chief financial officer of Coinstar, Inc. and interim president of Redbox.

Just 18 months ago, we rented our one billionth DVD and we couldn't be more excited to celebrate this remarkable second rental milestone with our customers, he said in a statement.

The company's two billionth disc rented was the film Drive, starring Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan and Bryan Cranston. The film was rented at a McDonald's restaurant in Philomath, Ore.
