'Batman v Superman XXX' Sales Soar as Mainstream Pic Sinks

Los Angeles - Proving that even bad word of mouth is better than no word of mouth at all, Wicked Comix reports that this weekend’s theatrical release of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been a boon to sales for director Axel Braun’s Batman vs Superman: An Axel Braun Parody.

Despite less-than-rave reviews for the mainstream BvS, interest in the superhero showdown has fueled increased sales for Braun’s XXX version.

In contrast to negative advance reviews of Dawn of Justice—the film currently has only a 30 percent “fresh” rating on the review aggregate site RottenTomatoes.com—the X-rated spoof has earned critical acclaim for Braun’s vaunted attention to detail and high production values. Though the director’s effects-laden saga has sold steadily since its debut in June 15, 2015, sales spiked dramatically as audiences across the globe geared up for Dawn of Justice.

With Giovanni Francesco, Ryan Driller and Brendon Miller reprising their roles as Batman, Superman and the Joker, Braun's movie made a mark at the 2016 AVN Awards, earning Kleio Valentien a Best Supporting Actress trophy for her portrayal of the villainous Harley Quinn. The movie film was also honored for Best Screenplay, Best Art Direction, Best Special Effects and Best Makeup.

Batman v Superman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody has proven to be a favourite in the mainstream press as well, with profiles appearing in such outlets as former Village Voice editor Tony Ortega's The Lip.TV, MTV UK, Perez Hilton, Digital Spy, The Daily Star and many others. To date, the movie's SFW YouTube trailer has been viewed nearly 1.7 million times.
