Global Universal’s “Plaster Rock” Officially Selected To Feature At The Silver Wave Film Festival

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

October 28, 2010 Los Angeles, CA – (WORLD STOCK WIRE) – Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTCBB: GBHL), and its affiliate, Global Universal Pictures (“Global Pictures”), was honored at a New Brunswick, Canada, entertainment luncheon, where it was announced that Plaster Rock — Terror on the Tobique, had been officially selected, from among numerous quality films, as a feature presentation film at this year’s Annual Silver Wave Film Festival. More information on the film, and the Plaster Rock trailer can be viewed at: www.plasterrockmovie.com.

This will be the Silver Wave ’s 10th Annual Film Festival, which selects feature films, documentaries and short films produced around the World, but highlights film makers in the New Brunswick area. CBC television is one of the sponsors of the film festival, and offers a lucrative distribution deal to selected winners.

The Fredericton News Channel in New Brunswick, Canada, covered the exclusive luncheon, which named its official selections from among more than 80 films in competition at this year’s event, to be held November 4th in Fredericton.  Global Universal Picture’s film Director, Jackie Giroux, was featured in the Fredericton News Channel’s coverage of the luncheon event (http://frederictonnewschannel.com/).

Plaster Rock was named an official selection based on its favorable reviews and the success of its limited theatrical release at The Grand Cinema Three in Grand Falls, New Brunswick, before it went to the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival in May, 2010.

Jackie Giroux, the film’s director, stated, “Last year we were honored to have our film, American Sunset, selected to officially open the Silver Wave Film Festival, and this year we thrilled with being honored once again having Plaster Rock featured as an official selection. This validates the quality of feature films that the Global Universal team can produce. Plaster Rock is our third feature film produced in less than two years, with our fourth film, “The Night”, currently in post-production, and already developing a following stemming from the film’s cast, including a Hollywood newcomer and child star, Ian Hamrick, as well as Lalesha Railsback, daughter of well known actor Steve Railsback.”

Global Universal is pleased to play such a distinguished role in the Silver Wave Film Festival, and looks forward to continue its production of quality feature films for the world to enjoy.  Last year’s opening film, American Sunset, starring the late Corey Haim, is now available on DVD only at www.AmericanSunsetTheMovie.com

Plaster Rock is an action packed thriller-horror film with humorous and egotistical characters. The story depicts eight young men and women, celebrities in their own mind, who are paid to compete in a cross-country skiing contest in the wilderness of northern New Brunswick, Canada. However, once left in the wilderness, they soon discover there is a hidden agenda behind this strange, but profitable  outing. Each participant is led to believe they must be the superior, lone survivor in order to collect the lavish cash reward. The plot takes a spell binding twist when the participants begin to realize that they must collaborate together in order outsmart their mysterious host.

About Silver Wave Film Festival: The Silver Wave Film Festival is jam packed with exciting film events and video programming with diversity and depth. The Festival is the brainchild of the board and staff at the New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-operative.

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

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.
