(VAN NUYS, CA) -- Digital Playground is very pleased to report Mondays' premiere of "Pirates" a total success. Co-produced with Adam & Eve and directed by DP's multi-award winning director, Joone, "Pirates" is a monumental step towards the eminent merging of the entertainment industries. The mainstream premiere boasted many "firsts" for adult entertainment; it was held at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood with full red carpet services, a complimentary bar, a real pirate band, fire breathers and gift bags.
AVN concurs; Editor in Chief, Mike Ramone writes, "Digital Playground pulled out all the stops at the "Pirates" premiere, which had the feel of a XXX-rated 18th Century theme park. DP has definitely upped the bar for adult premieres and at the same time laid down the gauntlet to other companies to follow suit." AVN staff writer, Peter Stokes raves about his experience, "['Pirates' is] nothing less than a cinematic porno tour de force. Mixing adult fare with elaborate costumes, exotic locales, stabs at acting and an actual story line is treacherous territory indeed for a triple X attempt, yet "Pirates" pulled it off with nary a hitch." XBiz Publisher and President, Alec Helmy also agrees, "'Pirates' redefines adult film making and has earned its place in the history books of erotica."
Digital Playground founder and director of "Pirates", Joone says, "I know I've hit my mark when my competitors offer praise and congratulations." David Joseph, President of Red Light District Video acknowledges, "I enjoyed the evening and I thought "Pirates" was done extremely well." Director, Producer and industry gossip leader, Mike South praises the Joone production, "'Pirates' has lived up to its hype. Look for it to sweep at AVN's 2006 Award Show." Robert Lombard, President of Creative Image Management and Casting raves, "It was a Fantastic evening for the Digital Playground team. They definitely have broken 'new' ground and surely will give the other big companies a run for the 'major' awards in All categories." Stuart Altman, Filmmaker and Commercial Director writes, "I have not seen a bigger production, intricate story, and a visually astonishing film outside of the Hollywood Machine than what was presented in the screening of "Pirates". Filmmaker Joone has raised the level of adult films being produced today, with the use of special effects, camera techniques, and production design. "Pirates" has the hottest talent in town, which left everyone in the theater begging for more." Waat Media also agrees, "A fabulous production, beautiful talent and a storyline better than many mainstream Hollywood films..."
Adult industry film critics and fans come together about the production. Roger Pipe of RogReviews.com writes, "The battle for movie of the year may very well be over. "Pirates" is a perfect blend of technical brilliance, entertaining story-telling, gorgeous babes and hot sex. If anyone thinks that an adult movie can't have an intriguing script, comedy, action, romance, hot girls, pirates good special effects and white-hot sex scenes then they need to see "Pirates" right away." Fleshbot's Gram Ponante says, ""Pirates" is the one porn movie this year that can be watched with the sound turned up and no fast forward. Jesse Jane, Carmen Luvana, and Janine are at the top of their athletic game and Evan Stone and Steven St. Croix are hilarious." a fan that goes by "AC" writes to Janine, "There are multi-million dollar, Hollywood actresses that can't pull off a character like you did."
The stars of the movie flock to the premiere, all are eager to walk the red carpet and when the theater lets out, everyone is smiling. Adam & Eve contract star, Carmen Luvana is overwhelmed by the audiences reaction to the movie, "this is the best production I have ever done. The scene with Jesse Jane is the best thing I have ever seen myself in. I absolutely loved it." Jesse Jane beams, "Filming 'Pirates' was the most outrageous and intense experience I've ever had." Tommy Gunn boasts, 'if I was only remembered for one film, this would be it." Evan Stone gives high props stating, "...never before in the history of porn has a movie been made of such grandeur and epic proportions as Joone's ''Pirates'...this is one of the most inspiring movies I have ever done to date." Superstar Janine gushes, "The scale of this production is nothing I've ever experienced even in mainstream film." "Digital Playground President, Samantha Lewis is smiling too, "It is with honor and privilege that we present "Pirates" to our customers, clients, associates and friends."
