The adult film industry has been on the cutting edge of technology for years, but it has only been in the last couple of years, that the industry has realized the potential of tapping into the nerd/fan culture of superheroes in an attempt to boost sales and interest in performers and creative talent. We took a look at the complete AVN Awards 2012 nominations list to see just how many superhero/nerd culture films made the list.
Exquisite Films has announced the latest property to get the adult film treatment is the Tomb Raider franchise, with Tomb Raider XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody. Principal photography has wrapped, and we have exclusive pictures from the set.
The AVN Awards takes place January 21, 2012 in Las Vegas, and is the adult film industry equivalent of the Academy Awards. This year, Vivid Entertainment’s Spider-Man XXX: A Porn Parody has been nominated for 16 awards, including Best Cinematography and Best Director in the Parody category. Axel Braun, director, says part of the success of the film is due in part to the mainstream media coverage, and comic book professionals.
Exquisite Films scored huge prestige points in the race for the 2012 AVN Awards, earning 29 nominations across a wide array of categories. The 2012 AVN nominations for Exquisite reflect the company’s commitment to crafting the industry’s hottest and highest-quality parodies, with big-budget features such as Saturday Night Fever XXX, Rezervoir Doggz, and American Dad! XXX grabbing nominations in top categories including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director – Parody, Best Music Soundtrack, and multiple nods in AVN’s Best Parody categories. The company’s Extreme Comixxx division earned Best New Line and Best Marketing Campaign – Company Image nominations, as well as multiple nods for megahits The Justice League of Porn Star Heroes, Supergirl XXX, and Captain America XXX.
I’m sure there are a lot of people who have been begging for their favorite adult actresses to have a little more depth in their performances. Extreme Comixxx is answering the call with a brand new 3D flick featuring parodied versions of Catwoman, Emma Frost, Zatanna and Supergirl.
Take the jump for a look at the actresses in full costume.
“Iron Man XXX: An Extreme Comixxx Parody,” the blockbuster adult movie of the year is now shipping around the world. Advanced coverage of Extreme Comixxx’s trailers and promotional art appeared on popular sites ComicBookMovie.com, Break.com, Uproxx.com, and Gawker Media’s Fleshbot.com. The result was hundreds of thousands of views and large consumer demand. Record pre-orders for “Iron Man XXX” eclipsed Extreme Comixxx’s bestseller “The Justice League of Porn Star Heroes,” prompting the studio to urge retailers and distributors to order now.
Well here is something you don’t see every day (because I don’t write every day like I’m supposed to, BAZINGA!), news that an adult movie has won an award for production. Extreme Comixxx’s The Justice League of Porn Star Heroes: An Extreme Comixxx Parody, picked up NightMoves magazine’s 2011 Best Feature Production award.
I don’t care what you say about the adult film industry creating these parody movies about comic book and pop culture properties, because it is the exact same thing the industry has done since its inception. Granted the titles aren’t as clever as they once were, but mashing up these two genres has attracted the attention of many, and there are people out there who want to see what pron valley is bringing.
Case in point – the latest trailer (SFW because the Robot Overlord told me to make it that way) of Extreme Comixxx’s Iron Man XXX: An Extreme Comixxx Parody has arrived, giving us a first look at Seth Gamble as Tony Stark and Heather Starlet as Pepper Potts.
If you’re life hasn’t seemed as full or complete as it was several months ago, it’s probably because I haven’t been on the site lately, which means my coverage of comic porn parodies has been quite low.
Time to fix that with some cover art for the upcoming Iron Man XXX: An Extreme Comixxx Parody.
Hey kiddies! While the adult film industry seems obsessed with making films parodying comic book franchises, it’s even better when the tables are turned and the parodies get parodied.
Case in point – The Dark Knight Rises XXX: A Porn Parody Parody. The porn parody adaptation hasn’t been made (yet), but that didn’t stop this awesomely awesome bit of awesome from hitting the Internetwebs this week.
It is safe for work if that kind of thing is important to you.
