Landmark Year for Platinum Studios

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Aug 05, 2011 -- Platinum Studios, Inc. (OTCBB: PDOS), an entertainment company that controls an international library of over 5,000 comic book characters which it adapts, produces and licenses for all forms of media, has been highlighted in entertainment trade publication Daily Variety.

Platinum Studios Chairman & CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg sent the article to investors and fans yesterday via the corporate newsletter, stating, "We were excited to hear the perspective of reporter Marc Graser and his perception of our corporate strategy in the wake of the release of our blockbuster film 'Cowboys & Aliens.'"

Graser states in the article, "In an unusual deal -- one that few creatives other than George Lucas have been able to broker -- Platinum has retained full rights to (the underlying comic book property) 'Cowboys & Aliens' with the exception of films, which DreamWorks, Universal, Paramount and Imagine share. U distribs domestically."

For Platinum Studios, the film "Cowboys & Aliens" marks the first of many upcoming projects based on the property. The book has been republished by HarperCollins Publishers and is now on the New York Times bestseller list; a mobile game and iOS game are available for purchase; a children's interactive e-book, "Cowboys & Aliens: The Kids," is available to download as well.

Variety quoted Rosenberg as saying, "For us, it's about the whole brand and the world that comes along with it. The film is just one part of the story. We have no limit to the different worlds and characters we can play with," Rosenberg said of the elements that appear in a 10,000-page bible penned for the property in 1997.

In addition to "Cowboys & Aliens," Platinum Studios is developing "Unique" at Walt Disney Pictures with "Harry Potter" producer David Heyman, "Vice" with producer Andrew Lazar and Top Cow Productions, Inc., a feature film project at Sony Pictures Animation, and "Blood Nation" with producer Alexandra Milchan. Platinum Studios is also developing "MetaDocs" for TV with Syfy, FremantleMedia and Landscape Entertainment.
