(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce that Jonathan Morgan's AVN Award Nominee Hercules is coming to DVD in a deluxe 2 disc collectors edition that includes such special, never-before-seen features as an Alternate Ending and Multiple Story Lines & sex Scenes. This big budget production was the first video of Wicked Girl Julia Ann's exclusive contract with the company, and features a cast of nearly thirty adult performers. Hercules will be in stores April 23rd, 2003.
An Editor's Choice in Adam Film World, this spoof of mythology's most notorious hero was dubbed "A lewd laugh riot and a hardcore history lesson you'll never forget" by Editor-in-Chief Jeremy Stone. Praise for the deluxe DVD edition has been just as high, with AVN's Wayne Hentai calling it "A colossal comedy of mythic proportions, with almost as many DVD extras as there are gods in the Greco-Roman pantheon!"
Indeed, this landmark DVD finds Morgan returning to the same comedic roots that made his Double Feature the most acclaimed comedy in AVN history (it won ten AVN Awards, including Best Director, Best Comedy, and a Best Actress nod for Serenity). In addition to Julia Ann as Hera and Evan Stone as the titular hero, the DVD also features a stellar performance by Randy Spears that saw the veteran actor collecting a Best Supporting Actor - (Video) trophy at the 2003 AVN Awards. In addition to fellow Wicked Girls Sydnee Steele and Stephanie Swift, the cast also includes Lezley Zen, Zana, Dee, Fujiko, Gina Ryder, Flick Shagwell, Mike Horner, Ron Jeremy, Steve Hatcher, and many more.
In addition to the all-new features mentioned above, this new Widescreen Edition of Hercules also features 3D Menus, Jump From Script, Multi-Angled Orgasms, Multi-Version Scene, Director's Diary, the Girls of Hercules, the Boxcover Shoot, the Trailer, Preproduction, Deleted Scenes, 5.1 Digital Surround Sound, DTS, Audio Commentary with Jonathan Morgan, Julia Ann, and Randy Spears, an Interview with Julia Ann, All Access: The Making of Hercules, Blooper Reel, Star Galleries, a BTS Photo Gallery, Audio Bios, Chapters, Wicked Casino, Photo Gallery, Wicked Web Hyperlink, Motion Menus, Wicked Awards: Winners and Nominations, and a Company Profile.
Reflecting on this production, Jonathan Morgan observes, "I'm always trying to raise the bar for myself, and I love it when other directors engage in healthy competition. These people help me to push myself, to advance, to do better work. So, we pulled out the big guns with Hercules." and Wicked Pictures' Head of DVD Production David Crawford is similarly proud with this landmark DVD, saying, "I'm really excited about the menu designs and the multiple storylines. They allow you to see what happens to the characters outside of the original story. "This is by far one of our best titles. I really wanted to take what we do with DVDs to the next level, and I believe we have with Hercules." for more information on Wicked Pictures' award-winning DVDs, please contact:
