epic

Here is my best explanation:

'blockbuster' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'start of exciting film' is the subsidiary indication.

'start of' says to take the initial letters.

'film' becomes 'pic' (I've seen this before**).

The initial letter of 'exciting' is 'e'.

'e'+'pic'='epic'

'a' is the link.
