LOS ANGELES—DreamZone Entertainment has inveiled the official website for director Lee Roy Myers’ upcoming adult epic, Romeo & Juliet. Boasting a classy design and smooth, easy navigation, the site features an extensive photo gallery, complete synopsis with cast info, links to media coverage and a teaser trailer.
Starring Rocco Reed and Chanel Preston (pictured together) as the star-crossed lovers, this passionate reinterpretation of the classic tragedy is slated for release on Feb. 7, 2012.
“Romeo & Juliet is a flagship release for DreamZone, and this new dedicated website will be the hub for an extensive publicity campaign leading up to the movie’s release in February,” said DreamZone VP of Sales, Adam Hasner. “Based on the pre-release exposure we’ve received from the mainstream media thus far, we fully expect Romeo & Juliet to break through the traditional barriers between adult and mainstream movies. It’s a very unique project with major production values and strong couples’ appeal. No other adult studio has produced anything like this movie, and we’ve seen an immediate rush of interest from press and consumers alike. This website is designed to maximize exposure as we continue to aggressively promote Romeo & Juliet to a broad and open-minded audience looking for an adult movie that is both romantic and sexually explicit.”
DreamZone scored a publicity coup when the first photos from Romeo and Juliet appeared as a 48-hour exclusive on the irreverent mainstream movie site, FilmDrunk.com. The unusual behind-the-scenes story of a real-life, on-set romance between Rocco Reed and Chanel Preston became a sensation on the web, as FilmDrunk jumped on this angle to spread the buzz about DreamZone’s Romeo and Juliet to millions of online visitors. The movie’s Feb. 7 release date is strategically placed to deliver the DVD just in time for Valentine’s Day.
“Rocco and I knew each other, and we’d even appeared in some of the same movies, but we never worked together directly until this movie,” explained Chanel. “From our first conversation on the set, we both felt a connection, and when we finally did our sex scene together, it was amazing! It was more than just a performance.”
Award-winning director Lee Roy Myers stated, “DreamZone’s Romeo and Juliet is the most unique, passionate and exciting movie of my career. It’s a contemporary take on Shakespeare that includes all of the sex deemed too steamy for conventional adaptations of the play. I was thrilled to shoot this erotic romance for DreamZone. I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished with this version of Romeo and Juliet, and I’m confident that this movie is going to find a big audience, way beyond the usual numbers for an adult release.”
Unlike Shakespeare’s play, all of the characters in DreamZone’s Romeo and Juliet are written as adults. AVN Award-winning Best Actresses abound: Lady Capulet is played by India Summer and Romeo’s ex, Rosalyn, by Andy San Dimas. Anthony Rosano plays the antagonistic Tybalt. The top-shelf supporting cast includes multiple AVN Hall of Famer Tom Byron as the patriarch, Capulet, Brian Street Team as Romeo’s loyal friend Benvolio and Ann Marie Rios as Polly, a thoroughly new take on Juliet’s attendant (and lover).
Romeo and Juliet will be released Feb. 7, 2012. For Dreamzone sales, contact Adam Hasner at 609-426-1777, ext. 228, or by email at [email protected].
