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.

It’s A Wrap! Plaster Rock, Global Entertainment Holdings’ Third Feature Film of 2009, Completes Production!

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

Los Angeles, CA – (WORLD STOCK WIRE) – December 22, 2009 — Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTCBB: GBHL), and Global Universal Pictures, a partially owned subsidiary of GBHL, announced production completion of their third feature-length, motion picture for 2009, Plaster Rock.

GBHL CEO, Gary Rasmussen, stated “Our unique financing strategy coupled with an experienced production team has certainly been proved to be a winning combination. Three major motion pictures financed and completed in just over twelve months in this uncertain economy speaks volumes as to our development strategy. Our first two pictures, Blue Seduction starring Billy Zane and Estella Warren and American Sunset starring Corey Haim have been successful and we expect continued success and profitability with the Murder/Horror thriller Plaster Rock.

Global Universal Pictures, an affiliated GBHL company, is engaged in the production of high quality, genre pictures with recognizable name talent. Jackelyn Giroux, President of Global Universal Pictures and the writer, producer and director of the movie said “Filming Plaster Rock in the wilderness at the New Brunswick location where the actual events of the true story took place adds to the “magic” we believe the audience will experience when they see this entertaining thriller.”

Adding to the excitement of filming the entire production around the remote Tobique River is the variety of talent starring in Plaster Rock. Lead actress in the film playing the former Miss America beauty Michelle is Jessica Holt. Fresh off her success starring in the award winning short film, A Dark Radius, Ms. Holt is a leading lady of many talents. A successful script writer, she is “at home” on both sides of the camera. Jessica is a skilled carpenter and experienced in the art and props departments. Skilled in special effects she is also a “Gun Wrangler” (set firearm specialist).

Christine Johnson starring as the vivacious Roxy also brought many talents to the Plaster Rock set. Christine is not only an accomplished actress she is a singer/songwriter, model and trained dancer in hip hop, jazz, modern and ballet. Fluent in English and French, she is one of many New Brunswick natives appearing in Plaster Rock.
