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.”
