Peace Arch Entertainment Updates Release of Year End Financial Information and First Quarter Financial Information

TORONTO--(Marketwire - January 14, 2008) - Peace Arch Entertainment Group Inc. (AMEX: PAE) (TSX: PAE), an integrated global entertainment company creating and acquiring critically acclaimed film, television and DVD content for worldwide distribution, today provided an update with respect to the Company's SEDAR filing of its audited financial statements for the year ended August 31, 2007 and its first quarter period ending November 30, 2007.

As announced on December 6, 2007 and as updated on December 17, 2007 and December 31, 2007, the Company has yet to file its financial statements for the year ended August 31, 2007. As a result of not filing its financial statements, it has yet to file its financial statements for the first quarter ended November 30, 2007. Given recent material events such as management changes and the required integration activities related to recent acquisitions, the Company requires additional time to complete its annual financial statements and audit. Once it files its annual financial statements, the first quarter will be filed shortly thereafter.

Peace Arch fully intends to continue to satisfy the provisions of the Alternative Information Guidelines until its scheduled release. On December 13, 2007, the Ontario Securities Commission issued a management and insider cease trade order which shall continue until such time as the statements are filed. Should the Company not file its financial statements on or before January 29, 2008, the Ontario Securities Commission may impose an issuer cease trade order.

Other than the release of the financial statements, the Company confirms that there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that have not been generally disclosed as of the date hereof.
