Global Universal Announces Sequel to “Plaster Rock”

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

Los Angeles, CA – (WORLD STOCK WIRE) – July 22, 2010 — Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc., a publicly traded entertainment company (OTCBB: GBHL), and Global Universal Pictures (Global Pictures), GBHL’s Canadian production affiliate, are pleased to announce that they have started pre-production on the sequel to Plaster Rock – Terror on the Tobique, which was released in May, 2010.

“We have arranged our production financing for Plaster Rock II, the sequel to Plaster Rock, and plan to start principal photography as early as this September”, according to Benoit Martin, who is writing the script for Global Universal.

Plaster Rock II will be filmed entirely on location in New Brunswick, Canada. The Plaster Rock theme is a fast-paced thriller-horror film which takes place in remote wilderness where you need more than luck to survive!

“This blueprint for success has become a bankable trademark for Global Universal, as we have successfully financed and completed all of our films ‘on time and on budget’, while putting out a product that has now warranted a sequel”, stated the film’s producer and former director of Plaster Rock, Jackie Giroux.

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.

Global Universal Announces Canadian Broadcast Deal for American Sunset

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

Los Angeles, CA(WORLD STOCK WIRE) – July 06, 2010 —  Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTCBB: GBHL), and its Canadian affiliate, Global Universal Pictures (“Global Pictures”), announced that it recently signed a Canadian broadcast deal that will allow Canwest Television Limited Partnership (“Canwest”, successor in interest to Canwest Media, Inc.) to broadcast American Sunset exclusively in Canada. The sale was arranged through Kaleidoscope Entertainment, Inc., based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, as the Canadian distributor for American Sunset.

GBHL CEO, Gary Rasmussen said “We are pleased to announce this broadcast arrangement with Canwest as it marks the first firm commitment for the film.  American Sunset had an exclusive screening at the Palais during the Cannes International Film Festival this past May and had audiences on the edge of their seats as they experienced the plot twists and turns of this exciting thriller! This prestigious exposure resulted in many potential sales opportunities worldwide for American Sunset, which our sales subsidiary Global Universal Film Group is actively following up on.”  Mr. Rasmussen also stated “making the cover of the Cannes Market News on May 16 during the height of the Cannes festival garnished considerable international attention for American Sunset.  Since this film is a product of Canada, and the late Corey Haim’s birthplace, it is truly fitting that we commence our subsequent sales efforts with a country wide broadcast for all Canadians to see.”

American Sunset starring the late Corey Haim and Frank Molina was directed by Michael Masucci and was also featured at the Canadian Pavilion at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival.  Eric A. Leffler, executive producer, commented, “This was Corey Haim’s last film and we’re all delighted that his abilities as an adult lead actor were finally recognized during the exclusive screening of American Sunset at the Cannes festival. Audiences in France identified with Corey’s character and the harrowing experiences his character underwent, all skillfully portrayed by Corey as a matured actor.  Hopefully soon, audiences worldwide will have the opportunity to enjoy his work and appreciate his special talent.”

During the Cannes International Film Festival, producer Jackelyn Giroux commented, “Myself, as well as the entire cast and crew, were deeply saddened by his untimely passing. Corey dubbed himself the ‘Comeback Kid’.  Although he is gone, we are pleased that Canadians will have the first opportunity to enjoy Corey’s comeback efforts and see his great performance in this exciting film.”
