LOS ANGELES, CA – (April 1, 2016) – Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce the release of award-winning director Brad Armstrong’s Sexbots: Programmed For Pleasure.  A glimpse into a future where scientists have created the ‘Ultimate Sexual Companions’, this new production featuring Wicked Girls Asa Akira, jessica drake and Stormy Daniels in their first tandem sex scene is now available at retail outlets nationwide.

Expanding on the cyberpunk style he established in the award-winning blockbuster 2040 (which has since been popularized in such mainstream Hollywood fare as Ex Machina), Armstrong’s latest release follows a team of dedicated scientists who’ve spent a decade perfecting lifelike “Sexbots.” But the day before the Asa-Bot (Asa Akira) is set to be unveiled to the world, she malfunctions and ‘loves’ the lead scientist (Brad Armstrong) to death in an intense anal scene. The high-tech lab goes into lockdown and Asa comes face-to-face with eight security technicians. Before they know what hit them, Asa seduces them in the biggest gangbang of her career. Soon she liberates two other Sexbots (jessica drake & Stormy Daniels) and activates them for a spectacular round of “erotic interfacing.”

An expert blend of sex, style and storytelling, Sexbots: Programmed For Pleasure received a five star editor’s choice review from AIP Daily, with the site’s reviewer enthusing that “the action stays intense throughout and Asa, in particular, does a great job of driving each of the scenes!” (To read the review in its entirety, please visit  http://aipdaily.com/2016/review-of-sexbots/.)

For her part, Akira is characteristically candid when discussing her new release. “You’ve definitely never seen me in a gangbang like this one. You’ve also never seen all three Wicked Girls in a three-way! My favorite scene in the movie is the anal scene where the Asa-Bot comes to life and literally fucks the life out of her creator! I can’t wait for everyone to watch this movie. It’s completely unlike any movie I’ve ever shot before, and I’m confident people are really gonna love it.”

jessica drake shares her co-star’s enthusiasm, adding. “Sexbots is awesome, it depicts futuristic sex gone awry – but the viewer won’t mind. When the  Asa-Bot unleashes the Stormy-Bot and I, the scene that follows is one of the best ever! It’s the first scene with all three current Wicked Girls, and I’m glad to have been in the middle!”

Stormy Daniels is quick to celebrate the director’s ability to bring his complex cyberpunk vision to life so skillfully. “It was such a pleasure to work with Brad Armstrong on this. His talents as a director, designer and art director really shine. The scene featuring myself, jessica and Asa, like the movie itself, is just amazing. I can’t wait to hear what the fans think of it!”

“Sexbots is the perfect blend of story & sex,” Armstrong says succinctly of his new release. “It’s one of the most elaborate gangbang movies ever made – the sets, costumes and storyline are all feature quality but the sex is as raw as it gets. The opening anal scene with Asa and I sets up the story, and from there we move into the main body of the movie, where she once again proves why she’s one of the most prolific performers in porn history. She takes on eight superstuds for 45 minutes of oral, anal and DP action that’s certain to land her in the Gangbang Hall of Fame.” The male talent includes Eric John, Dirk Huge, Eric Masterson, Jovan Jordan, Marco Banderas, Ramon Nomar, Steve Holmes and Tommy Gunn. Of the history making Wicked Girl three-way, Armstrong adds, These porn superstars have never worked on camera together before. Trust me, it was definitely worth the wait!”

Both shot and edited in pristine 16×9 widescreen HD, the Sexbots: Programmed For Pleasure DVD features three bonus sex scenes, a sensual still gallery, exciting trailers and other exclusive content. And it all comes encased in a stylish O-card depicting the trifecta of cyber-sexy Wicked beauties.

The Rise of the Sex Machines has begun. Audiences everywhere are invited to experience the action-packed future of erotic gratification. As Brad Armstrong says, “If a gangbang movie and a feature had a baby….It would be Sexbots.”

Brad Armstrong’s Dramatic Two-Disc Blockbuster ‘Starmaker’

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Los Angeles, CA – (September 16th, 2015) – Filmmaker Brad Armstrong’s ‘Starmaker,’ the anxiously-awaited follow up to his 2015 AVN Best Drama, Best Director and Best Screenplay winning blockbuster ‘Aftermath,’ is now shipping to retailers. Starring Wicked Girls Asa Akira and jessica drake, this explosive look at the dark side of Hollywood is the crowning achievement of a year that has seen the contract director earning critical raves and high profile mainstream attention with such smash hits as ‘Magic Mike XXX: A Hardcore Parody.’

Slated to arrive in retail outlets September 23rd, the acclaimed director’s new release finds him not only returning to, but expanding upon the blockbuster territory he mined so successfully in such Editor’s Choice blockbusters as ‘Aftermath’ and ‘Holly…Would.’ “‘Starmaker’ is by far one of the biggest and best acted films I’ve ever made,” Armstrong reveals. “The entire cast did an incredible job, and I expect to see them all nominated for their performances in the upcoming awards season. With a mainstream-length script and eight sex scenes, ‘Starmaker’  is this year’s epic. It’s three and a half hours of pure adult entertainment.”

‘Starmaker’ is the story of Mia (Asa Akira), a struggling actress who meets Jeremy (Tommy Pistol), an aspiring scriptwriter. Together, the two hatch a plan to blackmail famous movie producer Martin Anderson (Armstrong) by staging and secretly filming his illicit encounter with Mia. Martin caves in to their demands, but his no-nonsense, hard-as-nails wife Elise (jessica drake) is having none of it; she enlists the help of a hired thug (Kurt Lockwood) to put a stop to their scheme and make sure the story never makes it into the press.

For three-time AVN Best Actress award winner drake, the challenge of bringing a character as vividly written as Elise to the screen was one she couldn’t have been happier to accept.  “When I first read the part of Elise, I loved it and hated it all at the same time,” she reveals. “It is by far one of the juiciest roles I’ve played in my entire career, and it aligned me with some of the best players in porn…Tommy Pistol, Kurt Lockwood, Brad Armstrong, and best of all, it led to more sex with Asa Akira! It’s dark and gritty. It is not a love story. It’s full of action, passion, desperation and fucking. With this script, sex, acting, and art direction, the real Star Maker here is Brad Armstrong. I’m honored to have been a part of the project, and I’m grateful to Wicked Pictures for continuing to produce quality feature movies that fans want to watch.”

Akira’s praise for the iconic filmmaker is equally enthusiastic. “Brad Armstrong is a director I’ve looked up to since before I was in the business, so it’s always such an honor when he casts me in something. It was very humbling to be in a movie alongside such great actors. I was definitely inspired to bring my A-game! Brad, as usual, wrote a really exciting script and brought the best out of me – every time he puts me in one of his big movies, I’m both flattered and intimidated, which is a very fun and encouraging combination. Watching jessica play an evil bitch was pretty awesome, and a treat I don’t think many people have had the pleasure of experiencing. Who knew she’d be so good at being the polar opposite of her real-life self? And Kurt and Tommy, both guys who are known to be some of the best actors in the business, did not disappoint. It’s rare that guys can both act AND fuck my brains out, and they most certainly can. And did!”

Shot and edited in 16×9 HD, the two-disc ‘Starmaker’ DVD package delivers dramatic performances and intense eroticism from such A-list performers as Kaylani Lei, Amia Miley, Courtney Taylor, Jeanie Marie Sullivan, Kalina Ryu and more. In addition to the epic 219 minute feature, which comes encased in deluxe gatefold packaging, the release also contains extensive behind-the-scenes footage, three Bonus Sex Scenes, a steamy photo gallery, trailers and other exclusive content.

‘Starmaker.’ It’s the crime saga that will shock viewers. It’s the thriller that will keep audiences riveted. It’s the adult masterpiece that will keep couples aroused. As the director says, “the script, the acting and the intense sex makes ‘Starmaker’ the complete package.”
