LOS ANGELES—With interest driven by the release of two wildly popular trailers on YouTube, Axel Braun's Batman XXX: A Porn Parody, a sexy spoof of the '60s TV show, is in demand and has sparked interest among dozens of mainstream outlets, including New York Magazine and Ain't It Cool News.
The movie is available today, May 24, in adult video and comic book stores nationwide and online through shopvivid.com.
"I've gotta say, in my opinion as a Professional Batmanologist, this thing looks hilarious, awesome, and hilariously awesome," wrote Chris Sims on ComicsAlliance.com after viewing the trailer. "For one thing, considering how good the costumes are and how new that footage of the Batmobile looks, this might be the first pornographic parody that actually has higher production values than the source material."
Mike "The Birdman" Dodd of thisweekingeek.net said the movie is "Fantastic! I haven't been entertained like this in a really long time. You nailed everything! It's the coolest porn in the history of mankind."
Lewis Wallace wrote on the wired.com site Underwire, "The colorful costumes, the corny dialogue, the cartoon punches, the vintage Batmobile — the SFW trailer for parody porn flick Batman XXX nakedly nicks the style of the campy '60s television show from which it takes its name."
Upon viewing the second trailer released on YouTube, Lying in the Gutters writer Rich Johnston wrote on BleedingCool.com: "This was huge... Batman performing the Batusi...everyone loved it ..."
Paul Fishbein, who reviewed the actual movie on AVN.com, gave it five A's, the magazine's highest rating, and wrote: "Extremely well directed, Batman XXX: A Porn Parody never forgets that it's a sex movie, but it just looks and feels so much like the original that it really works on all levels. This is a can't-miss hit that should play for years to come on broadcast and VOD platforms and break some DVD sales records as well."
"The amount of interest that this movie has been getting is absolutely amazing, and actually quite humbling," said award-winning director Axel Braun, already working on Superman XXX: A Porn Parody, to be released under the newly-created imprint Vivid-Superhero. "I was very lucky," adds Braun, "I had an amazing cast of incredibly talented people who shared my passion for this project, a crew that pulled all the stops to help me realize my vision, and the support of the best Adult company in the world."
