Global Entertainment Holdings Announces “Plaster Rock” Now Available on DVD

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

December 22, 2010, Los Angeles, CA — Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: GBHL) announces the commercial release of the latest movie, “Plaster Rock – Terror on the Tobique”, produced by its Canadian affiliate, Global Universal Pictures. The film is being released by another subsidiary, Global Universal Film Group. “We are excited to be releasing this film to the public”, stated GBHL CEO, Gary Rasmussen. He continued “revenues from the release of American Sunset are being realized in this fiscal quarter and now Plaster Rock will ramp up revenues in the first quarter of 2011. Our previous film, American Sunset, starring the late Corey Haim, is scheduled to be released as an AppFlik on Apple iTunes before year end and, depending on how well it is received, we will also consider releasing Plaster Rock as an AppFlik.” The Plaster Rock DVD, along with a Free Plaster Rock Hat, is now available at: www.PlasterRockMovie.com.

“Plaster Rock – Terror On The Tobique”– Based upon events that actually occurred near the filming location, four young men and women are boated into a hunting lodge in the wilds of northern New Brunswick, Canada to partake in a cross country ski race in which the winner will reap a cash prize of $250,000. Each contestant is a former athlete or high-profile celebrity who has already received a deposit of $25,000 for their time just to travel and enter the race in the desolate area known as “Plaster Rock.” The only problem is, once left at the lodge by boat, there is no way out, and each contestant begins to realize they have more at stake than the cash prize.

Plaster Rock is a fast-paced thriller-horror film which takes place in remote wilderness where you need more than luck to survive!

Jackie Giroux, the film’s co-creator and director, commented, “…the use of a professional magician as an integral part of a films’ plot is very rare. What makes our film unique is, we utilized the world renown talents of Peter Loughran, Master of Illusions. Peter has created original Illusions for top magicians around the world including Criss Angel for the popular television program called “MindFreak!” Peter gives an amazing performance in Plaster Rock.”

Peter Loughran states, “It was really a thrill for me to take a break from designing magic and illusions, and sharpen my acting skills to become one of the central characters in “Plaster Rock.” My character was based on one of the oldest unsolved mysteries in New Brunswick, so it was equally challenging to research ‘this very real psycho’ and sink my teeth into a very meaty role, while creating many of the illusions in the film..” Peter’s site www.masterofillusions.ca has over three thousand fans.

The femme fatale, Lalesha Railsback, is no stranger to horror films, since her father, veteran actor Steve Railsback, played Charles Manson, of the critically acclaimed film Helter Skelter. Ms. Railsback commented, “My dad has always been a method actor, and I have learned so much from his days at The Actors Studio.” Lalesha has been acting since she was fifteen years old, and co starred in movies such as Coo Coo Cafe with Barbara Carrera (directed by her Mom, Jackie Giroux), and The Mondavi Gang, which she co-directed. Most recently, she co-stars in another Global Universal film produced by Jackie Giroux, and currently in post production, The Night, which is due to be released in February of 2011. “Global Universal has been so dedicated to the up coming new talent, and enabled us to work together as a family, which is rare in the film business today”, added Lalesha Railsback.

Plaster Rock had a limited theatrical release at the Grand Falls Cinema Three, with Iron Man 2 and Nightmare on Elm Street, in May of 2010. Both Kirk Davidson, of K-93 FM Radio, and Kelsey McDonald of The Victoria Star News, gave Plaster Rock very favorable reviews.

Director Michael Masucci Recognized By Global Entertainment Holdings For His Outstanding Work On American Sunset

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

GBHL announced today that the Company is recognizing Film Director, Michael Masucci, for his outstanding job performance as Director of “American Sunset”, an exhilarating film starring the late Corey Haim and Frank Molina.

(I-Newswire) Los Angles, CA, November 17, 2010 – Global Entertainment Holdings (OTCBB: GBHL) announced today that the Company is recognizing Film Director, Michael Masucci, for his outstanding job performance as Director of “American Sunset”, an exhilarating film starring the late Corey Haim and Frank Molina.

“I am very happy about how the film is being received;” stated Michael Masucci, Director. He continued; “from fantastic responses at the film festivals at: AFM (American Film Market), Silver Wave Film Festival, and Cannes International Film Festival to the exit reviews at the film’s limited theatrical release in Canada and the USA, I am elated.” And now it is available to the public on DVD and Blu-ray. Since Corey passed away there has been an outcry from his fans inquiring how they can obtain the movie; “it’s fulfilling to see that they are at last getting their chance.”

“We see it as ‘small town boy does well’ kind of story” stated Global Universal’s Jackie Giroux; speaking of Masucci. We are very proud of his work and wanted to give him the public recognition he deserves.
For Masucci the road to the director’s chair began shortly after earning his BA from The University of Scranton, in Scranton Pennsylvania. He enrolled into the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute. He would appear as an actor in a series of commercials, Off Broadway plays, and low budget feature films where he began working behind the camera as well. “I learned about the art of filmmaking by working and watching other filmmakers while on the set, it was a tremendous learning curve. I got to the point where I had worked in every facet of the filmmaking process both in front and behind the camera and the next natural step for me, was to direct.”

American Sunset is a thriller about a husband who awakens to find his wife missing followed by a call from an elusive character with a mysterious voice asking, “Wanna play a game?” The game is simple: a clue, a riddle, and a life hanging in the balance. The film unravels a mysterious conspiracy with numerous spellbinding maneuvers revolving around a kidnapping ploy to rob a devoted husband of his true love, while playing a game that prolongs her safety by correctly responding to riddles, which if to replied incorrectly, will surely result in fatal consequences.

The Movie, American Sunset, produced by Global Universal Pictures, in cooperation with Global Entertainment Holdings, is NOW AVAILABLE in DVD and Blu-Ray formats on the film’s Official website:
www.AmericanSunsetTheMovie.com, as well as the Company’s Tribure to Corey Haim website: www.CoreyHaimRemembered.com.

Global Entertainment Holdings recently announced that it has retained Level 4 Stonehenge Development Partners to implement its new technology, an advanced streaming technology for video distribution, called AppFlik™, that will offer American Sunset for download on Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) iTunes App Store. The Company expects that American Sunset will be one of the first of many films that it will bring to the world using this state-of-the-art technology.

“I’m truly grateful to all the executives over at Global Universal and I just hope that American Sunset continues to be successful and people buy the DVD, and support the movie. We had a crew of roughly 60 people on American Sunset, and the film is a testament to the talent and hard work of the crew, which are all deserving of paramount recognition. I anticipate that the film will continue to do very well for us all.” Stated Masucci.
Michael Masucci has several Film and TV projects in development, slated for 2011.

American Sunset DVD also includes in the Bonus features, – The Behind the scenes making of American Sunset, the theatrical trailer, and a musical tribute to the cast and crew. You can find it at www.globaluniversal.com.

Global Entertainment Holdings Implements New Embedded Application Technology For Movie Distribution

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Los Angeles, CA – November 10, 2010 – Global Entertainment Holdings (OTCBB: GBHL) announced today that its sales and distribution subsidiary, Global Universal Film Group, is implementing the latest video distribution technology, called AppFlik™. The application differs from current streaming resources in that it functions as a securely embedded movie to prevent piracy. The movie is loaded into an application with free social networking capabilities that interact with viewers worldwide. Security against theft is greatly enhanced, there are no streaming or buffering issues, and the delivery is a hi-resolution viewing experience.

According to Gary Rasmussen, CEO of Global Entertainment Holdings, “The digital distribution of movies is highly efficient, cost effective and profitable. This new delivery technology is fantastic – our films will now be available to our customers any place, at any time, with no packaging, no shipping or logistics to worry about. Plus, the security features of AppFlik™ provide safe electronic distribution of our movies.”

Global Entertainment has contracted Level4 Stonehenge Development Partners to embed and market its movies for these downloadable applications. Our first AppFlik™ movie is “American Sunset”, featuring the late Corey Haim (www.AmericanSunsetTheMovie.com), which is expected to be available for sale on Apple’s iTunes app store before year’s end. The AppFlik™ is being featured initially on iTunes since the very successful iPhone and iPad are currently the viewing screens of choice. However, with the introduction of other platforms (i.e. Google TV, Apple’s iTv, Sprint’s EVO 4g and DroidX), the sky is the limit for this form of digital distribution.

‘Plaster Rock: Terror on the Tobique’

With an all New Brunswick cast and crew, Plaster Rock: Terror on the Tobique was filmed in the rural community of Riley Brook.

Director Jackie Giroux caught wind of a murder story in the area in the 1930s and Plaster Rock became her next project. While four former female and male athletes are set to participate in a wilderness cross-country skiing contest, set in a remote location only accessible by boat, they quickly realize there’s more than $250,000 on the line. It’s their lives. The quest to survive includes a solid cast of New Brunswick actors, including: Jessica Holt, Christine Johnson, Eric Leffler, Michael Mascucci, Frank Molina, Jason Nicholson, Lalesha Railsback, Kelsey Wilson and Peter Loughran.

Global Universal Successfully Enters Online DVD Sales With Popular Demand For American Sunset

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

GLOBAL UNIVERSAL SUCCESSFULLY ENTERS ONLINE DVD SALES WITH POPULAR DEMAND FOR AMERICAN SUNSET

Oct. 13, 2010 Los Angeles, CA – (WORLD STOCK WIRE) – Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTCBB: GBHL), and its Canadian affiliate, Global Universal Pictures (“Global Pictures”), announces the on-line distribution of the Company’s action thriller, American Sunset, exclusively on the film’s website: www.AmericanSunsetTheMovie.com, operated by Global Universal Film Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of GBHL.

Due to an overwhelming demand from moviegoers, predominantly the late Corey Haim’s loyal fan base, Global Universal has launched the Company’s DVD sales division. With the Company having experienced a number of orders far in excess of what it had anticipated, just on the first day of availability, it was necessary for the Company to outsource the production of additional copies of the film.

“As is frequently the case with mainstream Hollywood, the movie has met its fair share of resistance. Corey Haim was a much admired Child Actor and Teen Heartthrob. His extraordinary talent was well recognized by distinguished critics at a very young age, firmly planting the establishment of his persona as the adorable little boy next door.” stated Jackie Giroux, American Sunset’s Producer.

“It’s well known how unforgiving Hollywood can be to grown up child stars, but the fans emphatically embrace him still… We have received abundant correspondence demanding an opportunity to see his final contribution to the film industry and the world. In the exclusive behind the scenes footage, Corey stated “I Want Everyone to See This Movie”, and his public will now have the opportunity to enjoy his exceptional performance in American Sunset. It is in his memory, and with this resolve that we move forward, passionately, to make this production, and others still to come, a smashing success.” concluded Ms. Giroux.

The Highly Acclaimed Film, American Sunset, features Corey Haim in his final performance as an adult leading actor. “Corey brought American Sunset to life with his outstanding performance.” stated Gary Rasmussen, CEO of Global Universal Film Group. He continues: “Between the talented cast, the exceptional directing, and the spellbinding plot of this film, it leaves nothing to be desired but a need to watch it again. We expect our internet sales to reflect these factors, as the popularity of this film continues to grow.”

American Sunset unravels a mysterious conspiracy with numerous spellbinding plot twists revolving around a kidnapping ploy that robs a devoted husband of his true love, while playing a game that prolongs her safety by correctly responding to the kidnapper’s riddles. One wrong answer means fatal consequences. As the pursuit to save his wife plunges Haim’s character deeper into a corrupt world, the greedy, deceptive and immoral motives become increasingly obvious; this is not just a random kidnapping for money, this is deadly personal.

The Movie, American Sunset, is NOW AVAILABLE in DVD and Blu-ray for distribution worldwide on the film’s Official website: www.AmericanSunsetTheMovie.com. Please visit the site and view the trailer.

Award Winning Producer, Jeffrey Bowler, Joins Global Entertainment Holdings, as Chief Consultant for U.S. Production Subsidiary

Los Angeles, CA – (World Stock Wire) – August 30, 2010, Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: GBHL), is pleased to announce that Jeffrey Bowler, an award winning producer/executive, has joined the Global Universal management team.  Mr. Bowler will serve as consultant to the Company in charge of building our U.S. production company, Global Universal Entertainment.

GBHL’s CEO, Gary Rasmussen, stated that “Jeff Bowler will drive the day-to-day business of Global Universal Entertainment and expand upon our already successful film business by developing film and television opportunities, as well as building an ‘in-house’ sales team.”

Mr. Bowler was the co-founder of the highly successful film and TV production company Insomnia Media Group, which had a housekeeping deal at MTV and Paramount, as well as a first look deal at Fox TV Studios.  Mr. Bowler recently produced the thriller “Across The Hall”, starring the late Brittany Murphy and “The Grand”, featuring Woody Harreslon and Ray Romano.

Prior to his tenure at Insomnia, Mr. Bowler was a top executive at World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: WWE), an integrated media organization and recognized leader in global entertainment. Prior to WWE, he served as an executive with Bandai Entertainment (The Power Rangers), a subsidiary of Namco Bandai Holdings (USA) Inc., the premier distributor of Japanese animation on DVD and programming for television broadcast in North America.

“The immediate goal is to establish a footprint in the television world for Global Universal and in concert expand the feature film business in the United States with a focus on films in the $5 Million to $15 Million range, starring ‘A-List’ actors.  The next phase of building our U.S. operations will be starting or acquiring a foreign sales division that will aggressively pre-sell, market and sell the films produced ‘in-house’ to help reduce our capital exposure in producing the films”, commented Jeffrey Bowler.

Global Entertainment Holdings Finalizes Joint Venture With Arthur Wylie’s Global Renaissance Entertainment Group

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Los Angeles, CA – (WORLD STOCK WIRE) – July 7, 2010 — Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTCBB: GBHL), is pleased to announce that it has recently completed an exchange of shares with Arthur Wylie’s Global Renaissance Entertainment Group (GREG). This was the final step towards commencing activities under a Joint Venture company formed last October with GREG called “Global Renaissance Funding” (GRF). GRF is 51% owned by Global Entertainment Holdings and will endeavor to raise capital for a slate of films to be jointly produced by GREG and Global Universal Entertainment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of GBHL, and with Global Universal Pictures, its 30% owned Canadian affiliate.

Gary Rasmussen, CEO for Global Entertainment Holdings, remarked that, “With the finalization of our Share Exchange agreement, Global Entertainment Holdings now owns an equity interest in GREG, an indirectly in the Omar Tyree properties, and GREG is now a significant shareholder in our public company, GBHL, providing both GREG and GBHL with a vested interest in one another.”

Last year, Mr. Wylie and Omar Tyree, the New York Times bestselling author, whose works have been read by millions, structured an exclusive deal to adapt his popular novels into film. Leslie, a supernatural thriller set in New Orleans, along with his best seller Flyy Girl are the first of Tyree’s novels to be adapted to film by GREG and to be funded through GRF. Omar Tyree books have been sold and read by over 8 million people. Leslie and loyal Flyy Girl readers will provide a “built-in” audience for the film.

Leslie is intended to be just one of several films planned for production this Fall at the newly formed Wylie Studios in Southeastern Michigan. Arthur Wylie, CEO of GREG, has begun securing production rights from many of Hollywood’s super-producers to produce high quality productions with better pricing. Plans are to operate from the 104-acre studio complex, which is located in the City of Allen Park, just ten miles outside of Detroit, Michigan, until they secure a more permanent site for their productions. What is now the studio complex was formerly the headquarters and warehouses of Montgomery Ward.

The vertical integration of the studio into the production structure of GRF and Global Universal will facilitate many upcoming film productions with reduced labor rates, hefty tax incentives from Michigan and enhanced production scheduling. “This paves the way for our companies to commence working on raising capital and starting the production of films in Michigan”, stated Gary Rasmussen, GBHL CEO.

A recent article in Crains Detroit Business News attests to the fact that Arthur Wylie and GREG have established a major presence in Allen Park, Michigan. “I believe that all businesses must get back to the fundamentals of business, financing and protecting investors’ equity, by utilizing a more efficient combination of debt, equity and tax incentives than typically structured by Hollywood”, stated Arthur Wylie, GREG CEO.
