Wicked Pictures ships ‘Barbarella XXX: An Axel Braun Parody’

Riley Steele leaps to superstardom in the debut release from Wicked Comix.

Wicked Pictures has started shipping Barbarella XXX: An Axel Braun Parody. The specially-packaged, two-disc DVD arrives in stores nationwide March 25. 

A perfect synthesis of Braun’s legendary attention to detail and the high production values consumers have come to expect and demand from Wicked Pictures, Barbarella XXX marks the debut of Wicked Comix, a new imprint dedicated exclusively to comic book parodies.

All Wicked Comix titles are being helmed by Braun, who is currently in production on Batman v Superman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody.

A campy, tongue-in-cheek spoof of Jean-Claude Forest’s classic sci-fi comic strip and Roger Vadim’s 1968 film adaptation, Barbarella XXX: An Axel Braun Parody stars ABP contract star Riley Steele in the titular role made famous by Jane Fonda.

Her co-stars include Wicked contract star Asa Akira as The Great Tyrant, ebony starlet Chanell Heart, and hot newcomer Rachael Madori, while adult industry legends Tera Patrick and Ron Jeremy provide hilarious non-sex cameos.

“Riley just nailed the Barbarella character and the true spirit of the movie,” said Braun.

“She is so beautiful that most people aren’t used to noticing just how good an actress she is, but in this movie her screen presence is undeniable, and she really went the extra mile to make the role her own, in all its campy, bubbly, sexiness.”

“I am very proud of the work she did, and the scene between her and Asa was absolutely scorching, to the point where we called cut at the end of her scene and they kept going at it for another 15 minutes. Now THAT is chemistry!”

Steele more than shares Braun’s enthusiasm, confiding, “I was so excited and nervous about playing this role because I’m such a fan of the original. But I have to say when I saw the final result I just stared aghast at the screen the whole time – it’s so amazing, and sexy, and funny! Axel has once again topped himself and I am really proud to be a part of this awesome movie.”

For Wicked Girl Akira, Braun’s new film gave her an opportunity to flex her muscles in new directions.

“I had a wonderful time playing The Great Tyrant for Axel,” she enthused.

“Between the elaborate set, beautiful wardrobe, and crazy hot sex with Riley, I feel very honored to be a part of this big, fun production.”

The dynamically-packaged double disc release comes packed with exclusive content, including three bonus sex scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, still galleries, trailers and more.

Barbarella XXX: An Axel Braun Parody is already attracting international attention, with the French television program Le Journal Du Hard airing a detailed profile of the film featuring interviews with Braun, Riley Steele and Michael Vegas. Le Journal Du Hard has aired since 1991 on Canal +, Europe’s most popular TV channel.

For his part, Wicked Pictures president and owner Steve Orenstein couldn’t be happier with the consumer interest and media attention the first Wicked Comix release is already generating.

“From the very beginning,” he said, “it was clear that Barbarella XXX had struck a chord with a wider demographic than we expected. Axel really believed in this project and infused it with his usual maniacal attention to detail, and that incredible degree of passion and involvement that are uniquely his, all of which really shows in the final product. Needless to say, all of us at Wicked are thrilled with the result, and I’m sure the fans will feel the same.”

Barbarella XXX: An Axel Braun Parody arrives in retail locations nationwide Wednesday.

Join Riley Steele as she melts the screen as the intergalactic heroine who saves the galaxy “one fuck at a time.”
