CANOGA PARK, Calif. — Five new ethnic female performers are featured in Mercenary Pictures' Black Moon Risin' 10, shot under the expert directorial eye of adult veteran Tina Tyler.

The title, in stores now, stars Angel Cummings, Aryana Adin, Bella Moretti, Melody Nakai and Taylor Layne, as well as CJ Wright, Mr. Marcus and three-time AVN Male Performer of Year, AVN and XRCO Hall of Famer, and Mercenary Pictures owner Lexington Steele.

"It takes time to find the girls we cast in the Black Moon Risin' series," Steele said. "We want a pretty face, of course, but it's also important that they can perform. Fans watch our movies because they want to see things that they don't see or can't do at home. These girls are new but they bring more ability to a scene than the average Jane."

Steele emphasized that bringing the same budgets and production values to Mercenary Pictures' ethnic movies have been important since he started the company.

"The girls in Black Moon Risin' 10, and in all our ethnic movies, are some of the finest women to be found anywhere," he added. "These women can only be showcased in first class locations with a cast that knows what works best on camera with an experienced director to capture it all. That's what Mercenary Pictures brings to all our movies."
