Vivid Studio Insider For August 30, 2013
WOLVERINE XXX RELEASED ON VIVID.COM, IN STORES SEPT. 10th - Vivid has released Wolverine XXX: An Axel Braun Parody online at vivid.com. It is also available on VividTV and the DVD version will be in stores on Sept. 10th. Axel says he has approached his latest adult parody movie with his usual attention to the minutest details: “Wolvie has always been one of my favorite superheroes, and I wanted to do him justice. Even though Hugh Jackman did a terrific job making the character his own, there were several things that always bothered me, one being his height (Wolverine is supposed to be much shorter), and the other one the fact that in six movies he still hasn’t worn the iconic yellow/blue costume…so I decided to fix all that.” In Wolverine XXX Tommy Gunn plays a mysterious mutant superhero with an unbreakable skeleton, retractable Adamantium (the indestructible metal alloy bonded to Wolverine’s skeleton and bone claws) and an overly developed sex drive. He eventually discovers that he has been used and experimented on as a living weapon by several governments and agencies over the years, each altering or wiping his memory to suit its needs. While unraveling the threads of his past, Wolverine encounters other fascinating characters and, of course, hot sex occurs at every turn. Axel adds: “This is a career-defining role for Tommy Gunn. He put a lot of focus and energy into it and he is absolutely superb as Wolverine. Aiden Ashley commands the screen in every scene as Domino, and the banter between Derrick Pierce as Deadpool and Xander Corvus as Spider-Man is all kinds of awesome. There’s a lot of story, a lot of fun, a lot of really cool costumes and plenty of sex…so hopefully adult movie fans will love it as much as I do.” The cast also includes Allie Haze as Rogue, Andy San Dimas as Jean Grey, Asa Akira as Mariko, Charmane Star as the handmaiden, Maya Hills as Lady Deathstrike, Evan Stone as Sabretooth, Lexington Steele as Nick Fury, and Mike Moz as Professor Xavier.
In an online review of the movie, CHUD.com reported: “The funny thing about Wolverine XXX: An Axel Braun Parody is that it’s not so much a parody of a Wolverine movie or TV show, but rather of the original source comic itself. The framework storyline is straight out of a comic in terms of length and some of the shot compositions look like they belong in a comic panel. Everybody’s in their classic comic get-ups, like a fantasy cosplay session come to life. I half expected to see some old ads for sea monkeys and get a no-prize for watching… By now, Braun and his troupe of regulars have got these parodies down to a science. Wolverine XXX has suitably sharp writing and characterization and never tries to overextend itself (namely, a key fight between Wolverine and Sabretooth is handled smartly). Non-sex stuff is 20-ish minutes out of a 104-minute movie. Vivid has been riding the formula of these parodies like a (silver) surf board for a while and there’s no reason to think that’s going to stop anytime soon.”
MIAMI GEARS UP FOR ‘VIVID LIVE’ LAUNCH – The grand opening of the new Vivid Live gentlemen’s club in Miami is not until September 12, but folks in Florida are already gearing up. The Miami New Times newspaper carried a pre-launch story by its sex-fetish columnist Ciara LaVelle under the headline: “Vivid Live: A Miami Strip Club from the Folks Who Brought You Weinergate.” In a story that featured a sexy photo of Tera Patrick, LaVelle wrote: “There's a new strip club in town, and it comes with one of the biggest names in adult entertainment. Vivid Live, a strip club concept by celebrity porn company Vivid Entertainment, is scheduled to open next month just outside Miami Springs. Vivid, for you pervs pretending you didn't know, is the company that distributed Kim Kardashian's sex tape, Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham's sex tape, and most recently, Weinergate, Anthony Weiner's not-so-secret (sexting partner) Sydney Leathers' solo porn project.” She reported that after a $10 million investment in the club “the owners opted to partner with the porn giant instead... the business plan: target upscale clientele… with 22 VIP suites and four ‘extra-exclusive luxury sky suites.’ … There'll also be a cutting edge sound system, 20-foot projector screens, and 40 plasma TVs showing sports. Also drawing in the hornballs: Boobs. Lots and lots of boobs.” The story noted that “the club opens with an appearance by adult star Tera Patrick on Sept. 12, which just so happens to be Thursday meat night. What luck.” Photo from Miami New Times, courtesy Vivid EntertainmentTera Patrick, host of Vivid Live's grand opening.
HUFFINGTON POST & OTHERS ON SYDNEY – The roll-out of the Sydney Leathers Weiner and Me video continues to attract attention. Huffington Post reported: “Fresh off last week's classy performance at a New York City strip club, Sydney Leathers continues to thrust herself into the limelight with a full-fledged porno. The Vivid Entertainment produced film is titled, what else, but Weiner and Me. The film comes off the heels of a licentious video in which Leathers shamelessly stars, but this time, she goes all the way. Anthony Weiner's latest sexting partner has proven to be taking full advantage of her newfound notoriety, divulging her seduction secrets one day and making appearances on Howard Stern. Huff Post won't be featuring the extremely NSFW video, but a promo featuring Leathers auditioning for her male counterpart was posted on the Huff Post site.” The story of the release of the tape was covered by the Phillip DeFranco Show and others, and YouTube also had a trailer of the video.
