Wicked Pictures: New to Adult Empire Unlimited!
Something Wicked this way comes.
Wicked Pictures is famous for a lot of things: its high-wattage contract stars, its award-winning parodies and features, and its stable of detail-oriented directors. The company is now bringing all its wicked, wicked ways to Adult Empire Unlimited! Members of the streaming service will be able to access a growing library of Wicked movies that will rotate periodically to provide fresh selections from the company’s rich archives.
Wicked was founded in 1993 by Steven Orenstein as a couples-oriented porn label and quickly established itself as a force to be reckoned with. The signing of Jenna Jameson as a contract star in 1995 helped solidify both the actor and the studio as some of porn’s most popular players. (A 1998 Los Angeles Magazine article famously mused, “Was it Jenna that made Wicked, or Wicked that made Jenna?”) Wicked soon became known for hits like Turning Point and Flashpoint (still Adult Empire’s all-time bestselling DVD).
Julia Ann became another fan favorite when she signed with Wicked in 2002, starring in the now-classic showcase Julia Ann: Hardcore. Directed by Jonathan Morgan, the movie opens with a monologue by Ann that could just as easily be describing Wicked itself: “I believe that it’s very important for someone to keep reinventing themselves in their career.” Wicked has always possessed this capability, while remaining true to Orenstein’s original goal of creating quality adult productions. Wicked became famous partly through its creative synergy with Jameson, and they’ve continued in that pattern via fruitful collaborations with current contract stars Asa Akira, Jessica Drake and Stormy Daniels.
Other hits now available on Unlimited include Manhunters, a bounty hunter drama from director Brad Armstrong, and Operation: Desert Stormy, a satirical wartime adventure set in the Middle East. Wicked has also become known for their famously jam-packed compilations (Blondilicious, Award Winning Sex Stars). Movies from the Wicked library will roll on and off Unlimited, so be sure to check back here on the Adult Empire blog for updates on the latest additions and changes to the company’s lineup.
