For Immediate Release | Wicked Pictures Presents Brad Armstrong’s Two Disc Urban Epic ‘Ethni*City’

LOS ANGELES, CA – (FEBRUARY 24th, 2017) – Blockbuster creator Brad Armstrong and Wicked Pictures are pleased to announce Ethni*City is now in release. The veteran director’s first project since The Preacher’s Daughter won a total of nine 2017 AVN and XBIZ Awards (including Best Drama and Feature Movie of the Year, respectively), Ethni*City is that rare couples film which seamlessly blends intriguing storytelling with passionate, meaningful erotica. Shot on location in and around Los Angeles, Mr. Armstrong’s latest production examines a diverse group of African American men and women whose relationships interweave until the fateful night their destinies collide with dramatic – and sometimes tragic – consequences.

Boasting a powerhouse ensemble cast toplined by Misty Stone, Kira Noir, Prince Yahshua, Chanell Heart, Osa Lovely, September Reign, Ricky Johnson, Yasmine de Leon, Sarah Banks, Jezabel Vessir, Sadie Santana, Dirk Huge, Nat Turner, Tyler Knight, Eddie Jaye, Stallion and more, Ethni*City is available online at wicked.com and as a deluxe two-disc DVD with collectible packaging and exclusive bonus content, including a special non-sex cut of the movie. To view the safe-for-work trailer, visit https://youtu.be/LLKMEe8Dn90.

Ethni*City follows an array of richly delineated characters whose lives reflect virtually every sector of modern LA’s cultural matrix. From power-suited attorneys and football greats to emergency medical technicians and police officers, friendships are forged, promises are broken, and tensions flare as relationships intersect and collide. The movie’s realistic characterizations and high production values are complemented by six intense sex scenes. From a couples encounter showcasing Misty Stone and Eddie Jaye to a four-way featuring Sarah Banks, September Reign, Dirk Huge and Nat Turner, viewers are certain to find the sex every bit as exciting as the story.

While Armstrong has created all-black productions before – his Wicked Passions vignette release A Touch of Seduction received nominations for All-Black Release of the Year (XBIZ) and Best Ethnic Themed Release-Black (AVN) – Ethni*City’s mainstream-quality screenplay and uniformly excellent acting take his vision to the next level. “Everyone gave 100% in this movie,” the director says. “Their understated, natural performances make you believe every word, and make you feel like you’re right there inside the story with them.”

For his part, Wicked Pictures President and Owner Steve Orenstein couldn’t be more pleased with Ethni*City. “When traveling the country meeting and training retail staff we met employees of color who would complement the quality of our movies and hoped we could create the same high quality product where the whole cast looked like them, and their customers. With Ethni*City Brad has done exactly that. We hope this movie will be well received and we look forward to delivering more.”

Packaged in a special keepsake sleeve, Wicked’s two-disc DVD delivers maximum value for the entertainment dollar. In addition to the 141 minute movie, the special features include a 42 minute non-sex cut of the film, three bonus sex scenes, character auditions, bloopers, photo galleries, trailers and other bonus content exclusive to the physical release.
