LOS ANGELES, June 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StarStream Entertainment, Inc. (OTCQB:SSET) ("StarStream" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce the premier of "Trouble Dolls" at the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival on June 15 and the theatrical releases of its critically acclaimed films, "Life After Beth" and "Life of Crime," in August 2014.
"Trouble Dolls," written by and starring Jennifer Prediger and Jess Weixler, with strong comedic performances by Megan Mullally, Jeffrey Tambor, and Will Forte, is a buddy film comedy produced by StarStream's Kim Leadford and Daniel McCarney, as well as Felipe Dieppa.
"We're very excited to launch our exciting summer season with the premier of 'Trouble Dolls' at the 20th annual LA Film Festival," stated Kim Leadford, CEO of StarStream. "The success and acclaim of our summer film line up validates the unique strength of our production team and our ability to identify motion picture projects with significant return potential for our shareholders."
"Life After Beth," the ground breaking dark comedy which premiered in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, will debut in theaters on August 15, 2014. The Hollywood Reporter calls "Life After Beth" a "perfectly pitched debut that should benefit greatly from word of mouth and, especially given the top-flight comic talents surrounding lead Dane DeHaan, won't appeal solely to fanboys at the box office."
Starring Aubrey Plaza, Dane Dehaan, Cheryl Hines, Molly Shannon, Paul Reiser, and John C. Reilly, "Life After Beth" was written and directed by Jeff Baena ("I Heart Huckabee"). The film is being distributed by A24, a New York based finance and film distribution company backed by Guggenheim Partners, with a string of recent box office hits, including, "The Bling Ring" and "The Spectacular Now," and is anticipated to generate significant revenue for StarStream, as well as commercial and critical success, in 2014 and beyond.
StarStream's "Life of Crime," the film adaptation of Elmore Leonard's novel "The Switch," starring Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins, John Hawkes, Isla Fischer, Will Forte, and Yasim Bey, and distributed by Lionsgate Entertainment, will debut in theaters on August 29, 2014. Written and directed by Daniel Schechter, "Life of Crime," which closed out the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, was called "a fitting memorial to Elmore Leonard" and "one of the most faithful of the many adaptions of the author's work" by Variety. The official trailer for the film debuted in May and can be viewed at: http://bit.ly/LIFEOFCRIME.
