Global Announces Major Deal to Produce "Screwballs" Sequel

Goofy Comedy Classic Goes Virtual in "Virtually Screwed"; Company Aims to Take Advantage of Incredibly Successful Youth Market

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - June 10, 2008) - Global Entertainment Acquisition Corporation (PINKSHEETS: PSRZ) announced today that the Company will capitalize on the wildly successful "Screwballs" and its sequel "Screwball Hotel." Global Entertainment will option the screenplay "Virtually Screwed" and will produce the full length feature in the next few months. "Screwballs" and "Screwball Hotel" have been seen by audiences all over the world and have been distributed by both Universal and Warner Brothers. The films have been wildly popular with the teenage and young adult audiences, and have been very profitable receiving tremendous advances from both domestic and international distributors with distribution in 48 countries around the world.

"We are aiming at the same audience who made movies such as '40 Year Old Virgin,' 'Knocked Up,' 'SuperBad' and the 'American Pie' Series blockbuster hits," says Global's CEO, Maurice Smith. "Our strategy is to produce outrageous comedies that are aimed squarely at the incredibly successful youth market," Smith went on to say. In keeping with his "out of this world" crazy comedies, Smith has set the plot for the new film to be "out of this world and into the virtual world" of Video Games thus hoping to attract the many millions of computer game players worldwide. "I smell a big hit," said Smith.

Global Entertainment has acquired an option to produce a motion picture based upon the teen comedy screenplay "Virtually Screwed." This is based upon the success of the previous films in this series, one of which was released in the U.S. by Warner Brothers and another by Universal Pictures, while foreign sales for one was handled by Arnold Kopelson ("PLATOON," "THE FUGITIVE," "SEVEN," "OUTBREAK").
