A full decade after its original release, Wicked Pictures' feature Flashpoint
has hit the coveted #1 spot on Adult DVD Empire's bestseller chart.
Directed by multiple AVN award-winner Brad Armstrong, Flashpoint
stars Jenna Jameson, Sydnee Steele, Jill Kelly, Asia Carrera and Mike Horner in a big-budget porn variation on Backdraft
. The movie was Wicked's first to be issued on DVD and has remained a strong seller ever since, winning several sales awards from Adult DVD Empire.
"I'm not surprised, because I know how well Flashpoint has consistently done for the past 10 years," Wicked Pictures head Steve Orenstein told AVN. "It is our best selling movie of all time and has been the best selling movie of all time for DVD Empire as well. It is a big-budget movie, directed by Brad Armstrong and starring Jenna Jameson with a great story, strong sex, fire trucks and pyrotechnics. I'm thrilled that this movie as well as other big movies of ours have withstood the test of time and still seem big 10 years later."
"I've worked at Wicked for almost two years now, and I don't think I've ever seen Flashpoint
drop off the Top 100 list on Adult DVD Empire," added Wicked's Bonnie Kail. "In fact, I'm pretty sure I've never seen it drop off the top fifty, and I'm on there a lot."
Wicked recently discontinued the original Flashpoint
DVD to make way for a 10th anniversary special edition, Flashpoint X
. The new special edition DVD will include four discs loaded with extras, including a new interview and commentary with Armstrong, Jenna's scenes uncut, never-before-seen footage and ten bonus Jenna Jameson sex scenes.
Kail attributed the recent sales spike to the buzz surrounding the upcoming special edition. "It's the biggest movie we've ever had at Wicked, and I feel like this is the release that made Jenna a superstar. Flashpoint
is one of the all-time classics in that it's ten years old but doesn't feel dated at all."
