HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla., Dec. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Movie Studio, Inc. (OTC:MVES) (the “Company”) www.themoviestudio.com proudly announces the introduction to Network Affiliates, Vendors and Content Providers The Movie Studio, Inc. acquisition of Emerging Pictures and new content and marketing initiative prior to re-integration of the proprietary asset movie theater commercial Video on Demand Network.

About The Movie Studio acquisition of Emerging Pictures

Emerging Pictures Commercial VOD (Video on Demand) platform is a B2B Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime for movie theaters. The platform provides seamless point to point distribution while lowering cost for theaters, film makers and distributors. The technology also totals consumer demand for motion pictures providing advanced analytics while utilizing the data to match and deliver content in order to capitalize on profits. This enables providers and exhibitors to be more effective and advanced in their distribution tactics and user interface design decisions.

Historically, the technology at hand has forced filmmakers and studios to provide physical copies of their films, DVDs or digital copies on hard drives to distributors and theaters across the globe. All too often the films are ultimately copied and pirated, resulting in a loss of revenues. Emerging Pictures Commercial VOD (Video on Demand) platform helps to prevent piracy with the goal of increasing overall revenues for film-makers, studios, distributors and theaters. The proprietary platform differentiates from the traditional process abolishing piracy of motion pictures. 

“By initiating vendor and theatrical application of the acquired proprietary commercial VOD platform developed by Emerging Pictures, The Movie Studio could maximize, utilize, enhance and expand its footprint to theatrical distribution and gain market share of our independent films and other films companies with possible revenue shares,” announced Lorne A. Wray, the Executive Vice President.

“The acquisition of the Emerging Pictures Platform in theater venues is positioned in the sector with a disruptive technology and combined with a disruptive marketing strategy could not only deliver movies to the theaters but also combine a digital out of home (DOOH), mobile and various print initiatives as ‘Traffic Drivers’ that could provide a unique model for large scale integration of our content,” Gordon Scott Venters, President and CEO stated today.

“Listing on NASDAQ represents a major milestone for our Company and its shareholders, reflecting the significant progress our team has made in preparing CB4211 for clinical trials, and in securing our leadership position in the development of MBTs, a new class of therapeutics with the potential to treat a wide range of age-related diseases,” said Simon Allen, CohBar CEO. “We believe that our NASDAQ listing will significantly enhance our visibility in the marketplace, attract institutional investors, and ultimately help us to realize greater value for our shareholders as we expand our pipeline of novel therapeutics that harness the power of the mitochondria and its encoded peptides.”

About CohBar’s Lead Program 

CohBar’s lead preclinical development program is based on MOTS-c, a mitochondrial-derived peptide (MDP) that was discovered in 2012 by CohBar founder Professor Pinchas Cohen and his academic collaborators, whose research has shown that MOTS-c plays a significant role in the regulation of metabolism.
