For Immediate Release | Brad Armstrong's Two-Disc Blockbuster "Holly...Would" Arrives in Stores Today

LOS ANGELES, CA – (SEPTEMBER 30, 2014) – Adult industry powerhouse Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce the arrival of veteran director Brad Armstrong’s Holly...Would in stores. Following the runaway success of Underworld and his current AVN & XBIZ Editor's Choice Aftermath, the director's latest dramatic masterwork is now available as a two-disc, four-hour DVD release with special gatefold packaging. Armstrong's lavish story casts AVN, XBIZ and XRCO Performer of the Year and Wicked Girl Asa Akira as the titular "Holly" - a glamorous, high-class escort in Los Angeles whose livelihood is endangered when someone exposes her lavish operation. Secrets, lies, and murder soon follow in what may well be the most intricate saga the director has ever created. "This year, I focused on storytelling and it's really paid off," he observes. "My other epic release for the year, Aftermath, turned out amazingly well and Holly...Would is right up there with it as two of the very best movies of my career." The award-winning filmmaker is quick to praise his superstar cast just as highly. "I think this may very well be the best film Asa's ever done...And that's saying something. She is excellent in this movie and will definitely be recognized come awards season. And as usual, her sex scenes are completely off the charts. Samantha Saint also did a fantastic job in her role as the undercover cop-turned-escort. At the risk of repeating myself, it may be her best performance as well. It's just that kind of movie where everyone brought their A-game and it shows. Xander Corvus and Barrett Blade brought it for the guys, and, together with a great script, Holly...Would is everything an adult film should be!" For her part, Ms. Akira shares the director's enthusiasm for the project. "I've never been so excited for the release of a movie! It's the biggest one I've ever shot, and it has both the most acting I've ever done as well as the most sex scenes I've ever had in a single production. Honestly, I had sex with more people in Holly...Would than most people do in a lifetime. Obviously, I'm very proud of that!" While she may be pleased with the film's lavish sex and intricate story, Asa saves her highest marks for the veteran filmmaker himself. "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. This experience did not disappoint. I really think it's the best movie I've ever done, and I can't wait to see if everyone agrees!" Specially packaged in a gatefold sleeve featuring Asa, Samantha and such co-stars as James Deen and Barrett Blade, Wicked’s two-disc release delivers maximum value for the consumer’s entertainment dollar. In addition to the 235 minute, nine commercial-scene movie, the title also features two “Director’s Cut” sex scenes as well as three bonus sex scenes.
