(VAN NUYS, CA) -- Joone's heavily awarded and highly visible 'Pirates' becomes available July 11th on DVD in mainstream and adult outlets. In May, "Pirates" became the first adult movie to successfully crossover, receiving an R-Rating from the MPAA and worldwide mainstream distribution.
Digital Playground's R-rated "Pirates" DVD is available now to wholesale buyers exclusively through MTI. Pre-book opened on June 20, 2006 and the 'out the door' numbers are staggering. The public interest in "Pirates" has continued to increase since it's original XXX release. Adding to the hype, Digital Playground's new edit is timed to coincide perfectly with the theatrical release of 'Pirates of the Caribbean 2.'
Joone, Digital Playground founder and the director of 'Pirates,' is excited. He says, "I'm extremely pleased that the movie is available for a larger audience. To have achieved this measure of crossover appeal and interest is an honor to say the least." Digital Playground President, Samantha Lewis smiles, "MTI's top retail accounts are buying deep and even our most optimistic projections have been blown out of the water in pre-orders alone. I couldn't be happier, 'Pirates' is truly a milestone; it is the first adult film to cross into the mainstream market and it is a perfect example of true independent filmmaking."
Filmed with High Definition 24p cameras, award-winning director Joone, has created an electrifying, swashbuckling adventure that takes you on a humorous and mystical journey through haunted seas. 'Pirates' features deadly swordplay against CGI skeleton warriors, awe-inspiring INCAN magic, explosive sea battles, and over 300 special effects.
