San Jose, Calif., Jan. 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- From action to romance films, subscribers on local news and events site Buckaroo.com now have access to upcoming movies.

"As a local tool, we want to provide news and entertainment for the smallest of communities in North America," said Alan Fisher, Co-Founder and Chairman of Buckaroo's parent company Iron Speed, Inc. "Showing local entertainment in tight knit communities can be a difficult task. Adding movies to Buckaroo's daily updates helps us achieve that goal."

"We're excited to show our users additional fun things to do in their community," adds Fisher. "If the majority of people read the news online, why not have access to local entertainment all in the same place?"
