VAN NUYS, Calif. - Digital Playground is hustling to keep up with the record number of pre-orders for Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge.
Distributors have confirmed that Digital Playground is preparing to ship the most copies of an adult movie ever at one time as the street date of Sept. 27 approaches. While the mass quantity of Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge on DVD and Blu-ray is on track to break shipping records, the company said it still may not be enough for every store to meet the growing demand by fans to own a copy. The sequel is drawing significant attention from both the adult and the mainstream entertainment industries, the company reported.
Some of the top adult distributors in the country have recently expressed their excitement about the release. Shannon Nutt, editorial director for Adult DVD Empire, expects the movie to "stake its claim as the first breakout adult movie on the Blu-ray format. All indications right now point to this being the biggest hit of this year...and perhaps 2009 as well."
IVD's Director of Public Relations, Alexandra H., added, "Pre-order sales for Pirates II have gone through the proverbial roof. Store owners have been calling their IVD Sales Reps about Pirates II for months, because they say their customers are practically begging for the DVD."
Debi Yoskey, buyer for GVA-Cleveland, said, "I have never given a pre-order to any studio, for any title, in excess of my pre-order for Pirates II. The success for us has been enormous and I don't want to run out."
Samantha Lewis, Digital Playground's CEO said, "on behalf of our sales team, I would like to thank each and every one of our distributors for their phenomenal and continued support of our studio and titles. The pre-orders we have received for Pirates II are staggering and incomprehensible. It is a unique time in our industry and we are at the forefront of a major fight against piracy. I am excited to be able to offer this title exclusively on DVD and Blu-ray to our loyal customers and to bring something to the table that will raise everyone's margins again. We will be working harder than ever, behind the scenes, to make sure the consumer is demanding it."
