Empire Blasts Into New Year With Video Release of Hollywood Comedy "2 Dudes And A Dream"

MALIBU, CA--(Marketwire - November 27, 2009) - Empire Film Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: EFGU) (http://www.empirefilmgroup.com) will launch its 2010 schedule with the January 12 DVD and Blu-Ray release of the acclaimed indie-comedy, "2 Dudes And A Dream" starring Brian Drolet ("The Hills") and Nic Nac ("Van Wilder"). Videos will be available at most major sell-through accounts and major video rental outlets, with DVDs priced at $14.95 suggested retail and Blu-Ray units priced at $19.95 suggested retail.

Empire's support for the film's video release includes a high-profile internet campaign conducted by OSEO Marketing, and a mainstream media publicity blitz coordinated by 42 West Public Relations. College campuses across the country will be covered with posters promoting the video release, a strategy which has proven successful for comparable appeal films from National Lampoon.

"Empire is on an enhanced schedule for new release video titles every month during 2010," said Dean Hamilton-Bornstein, CEO of Empire Film Group. "Our January launch with the video release of '2 Dudes And A Dream' will establish a great platform for a record sales year at Empire," he concluded.

"2 Dudes And A Dream" tells the story of two aspiring stars struggling to break into Hollywood through any means necessary. The film was produced by Cole Payne and directed by Nathan Bexton. Comedians Brian Drolet and Nic Nac portray an unlikely duo that become the best of friends as they struggle together to pursue their dreams, one aspiring to be an actor and the other fighting against all odds to become a model. Their journey to the red carpet is less than simple and more than hilarious as they encounter a non-stop barrage of obstacles and whacked-out characters, all inspired by the crazier-than-fiction reality that pervades much of the movie industry.

"2 Dudes And A Dream" combines the raw honesty of indie-cinema with the mainstream appeal of major studio hits to deliver a comedic film that will appeal to many different audiences. With the quirkiness of "Napoleon Dynamite" mixed with a seasoning of raunchiness a la "The Hangover," it's no surprise that Movie News has called the film "Hilarious, edgy and surprisingly true... definitely the funniest spoof of Hollywood ever."

The film is a 2009 production, rated R, with a running time of 88 minutes. DVD item number is 3833, Blu-Ray item number is 0833.
