For Immediate Release | jessica drake & Brad Armstrong Unveil the Cover of Their Transformational Showcase ‘jessica drake is Wicked’

Los Angeles, Calif. – (September 5, 2017) – Global adult entertainment innovator Wicked Pictures contract director Brad Armstrong and adult superstar jessica drake today released the cover for jessica drake is Wicked, an all-inclusive performance showcase featuring the three-time AVN Best Actress and award-winning sexual wellness advocate in five cinematic fantasies which redefine and transcend the boundaries of traditional mainstream erotica.

As the striking cover announces, jessica drake is Wicked is a journey across the limits and edges of human sexuality and consciousness. "This showcase by Brad Armstrong features highly stylized vignettes, each with a different theme," the iconic industry spokesperson and sex worker advocate reveals. "I consider it to be one of the most introspective movies I’ve ever made. I challenge the viewer to dismantle their perceptions about what porn is and who the performers are. It’s definitely a statement piece, and I’m forever grateful to Wicked Pictures for demolishing stereotypes and for supporting films which create a dialogue about human sexuality.”

Within the film, jessica explores fluidity in perceived gender norms and sexual preferences, demonstrating without reservation that sexuality, and its expression, is limitless and beautiful. This cinematic tour de force has proven transformative not only for jessica but for the adult genre as a whole, with industry press and mainstream media outlets alike noting the movie’s rich and varied vignettes include a transgender scene pairing the Wicked Girl with trans superstars Venus Lux, Aubrey Kate, and Domino Presley.

jessica is quick to credit Armstrong's visual sense with making the film such an impactful experience, from a hyperreal ‘Cirque du Sex’ featuring Abella Danger, Angela White, Vicki Chase, Brandy Aniston, and Anikka Albrite to an intense interracial blowbang and much more. “I’m very grateful for our Wicked visionary, Brad Armstrong. With his amazing art direction, set design, wardrobe, and styling ability, he created aesthetically sensual environments for some of the best sex cameras have ever captured! This movie is also a showcase for him as well - it showcases his talent as a truly gifted director.” Her other companions on this stylish voyage into desire include Anna Bell Peaks, Lily Lane, Sarah Jessie, Ricky Johnson, Will Havoc, Isiah Maxwell, Small Hands, Dirk Huge, Rob Piper, and Ryan Driller.

From the future shock of DNA and Sexbots to the lush tableaus of desire and abandon depicted in Fallen and Underworld, Armstrong / drake collaborations invariably deliver spectacular art direction, lush eroticism, and flourishes of dark fantasy. Fittingly, these trademark aesthetics are on powerful display throughout jessica drake is Wicked's generous two and a half hour running time. “Brad Armstrong is my favorite director to work for,” jessica enthuses. “Nothing compares to his artistic vision and his attention to detail. I love that he pushes me and constantly challenges me not only to do more but to also to do it better. I know that I can count on him to bring out the very best in everyone. Everything about jessica drake is Wicked is visually captivating thanks to his vision – the cast, the amazing wardrobe, the art direction and the phenomenal locations. A movie of this magnitude demands excellence from everyone involved, and I couldn't have had a more talented director, a better crew, or a better cast to bring this ambitious showcase to life."

For his part, Armstrong enthuses, “jessica was a real trooper. A lot of showcases get shot over a long period of time, sometimes weeks or even months between scenes. We shot a-day-on-a-day-off all the whole way through, so she definitely had her work cut out for her. She had sex with eighteen people over the five-day span of the movie, fifteen of whom she'd never worked with before."

Reflecting on his creative choices, Armstrong adds, "It was great to just do ‘art for art’s sake’ again; styling people to make them look their best and building a cool set where once there was nothing is really satisfying. We got a lot of amazing visuals in every scene, and although each of the concepts is incredibly diverse we seemed to outdo ourselves as the shoot went on. Kudos to the cinematographers, Barrett Blade and Alex Ladd, as well as my set-and-props team, Andy Appleton and Dirk Huge. I couldn't have done it without them.

Both shot and edited in widescreen 16×9 HD, this two-disc Wicked Pictures DVD will be packed with additional content, including three bonus sex scenes, behind-the-scenes coverage, a hot hardcore still gallery and other added-value items exclusive to the physical release. “I am grateful to Brad and Wicked for giving me the chance to bring my dreams and fantasies to life,” jessica beams as she reflects on this groundbreaking production, which will be available as a deluxe two-disc gatefold-sleeved DVD September 13th. “And, most of all, I'm grateful to them for recognizing the importance of diversity and inclusion.”
