VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR MAY 1, 2015
“SO MANY ZEROES” IN COURTNEY SEX TAPE BID – The internet has been buzzing all week after TMZ revealed that Vivid wants to distribute a solo sex tape starring Courtney Stodden. It went even more insane after Courtney got a $1-million offer from Vivid. TMZ then ran the headline “I never Seen So Many Zeroes!!” The TMZ report also said: “Courtney Stodden has a million dollar money maker -- so says Vivid Entertainment boss Steven Hirsch ... who's seen her sex tape and is now willing to put his money where her hoo-ha is. When TMZ broke the story that the 20-year-old's solo vid was getting shopped around ... Hirsch said he was impressed by what he'd seen. Now we know just how impressed. Hirsch fired off a letter to Courtney offering her $1-million to lock up exclusive rights. The letter hints at bonuses ... saying there's potential for her to make even more than the mil. Ball's in her court now -- but we're guessing she's on board, and reached that decision in less time than it took for you to read this sentence. See ya at the AVNs, Courtney.

AVENGERS 2 XXX NAMED AAN’S “FRIDAY 5 STAR FEATURE” – Avengers 2 XXX: An Axel Braun Parody was released only last week, but already it is attracting positive media and website attention. All Adult Network named it a “Friday 5 Star Feature.” National Features and DVD Editor Art Koch wrote: “The wait for the follow-up to Braun’s first Avengers parody for Vivid is over and the wait was well worth it. With a great cast reprising their roles, plus new ones this has plenty of action going on with the likes of Mockingbird, Hawkeye, Captain America, Wasp, Spider-Man and more. Once again Braun and his long time collaborator, Eli Cross, take you on a superhero journey in adult fashion as only these two can.” Koch adds: “The film is extremely well crafted, the costumes and action sequences are excellent. The cinematography, music and performances by the cast are all just what you would expect from Braun. Once again his attention to detail is spot on and the art and set decoration by Kylie Ireland and Andy Appleton is tremendous. The writing is crisp and performed well by the cast. Lastly, and not least, the sex scenes that take place provide plenty of steam and are cleverly done considering the costuming.”
