LOS ANGELES—June is busting out all over for Vivid Entertainment, which has two movies topping the AVN Retail Buzz best-seller list this week. The two titles—both hotly anticipated—are Kendra Exposed, the controversial sex tape footage of E! Television Network star Kendra Wilkinson, and Batman XXX: A Porn Parody, a sexy spoof of the campy 1960s show. Together they claimed top spots on the AVN charts for the week ending June 11.
AVN bases its statistics on rental figures from traditional retailers and sales from traditional and online retailers.
Vivid is the world's leading adult film company and is known for its high-quality feature productions as well as its creative imprints. Kendra Exposed was distributed through the company's popular Vivid-Celeb imprint, famous for celebrity sex movies starring Pamela Anderson, Kim Kardashian, country singer Mindy McCready and others.
"We were immediately excited about our acquisition of the Kendra footage, knowing that she had a big following from The Girls Next Door and her own current show, Kendra, both on the E! Network," said Vivid founder/co-chairman Steven Hirsch.
Batman XXX: A Porn Parody was produced and directed by Axel Braun of Axel Braun Productions and distributed by Vivid.
"We got unbelievable support for this movie from Vivid. They totally understood our detailed and faithful approach to the characters we were parodying," said Braun.
"Whether it's comic or celebrity, adult movie fans expect Vivid to deliver quality productions that resonate with their individual tastes" said Hirsch. "We knew that the combination of Axel Braun with a revered comic character would create a winner and working on this movie with Axel motivated us to create a new imprint based on comic superheroes."
