<i>Sunny Loves Matt</i> Signals Leap Forward for Sunny Leone

LOS ANGELES – Vivid Entertainment contact performer and Penthouse Pet Sunny Leone's boy/girl debut in Sunny Loves Matt signals a new direction for the starlet's career and is generating a huge industry and consumer buzz.

Shannon Nutt at DVD Empire said of the release, "Sunny may love Matt, but if our pre-book numbers on this release are to be believed, everybody loves Sunny. This is one of the most talked-about adult releases out there right now, starring one of Vivid's most popular talents, and we expect it to be a big hit with our customers. Everything about this release screams 'blockbuster.'"

Vivid national sales manager David Peskin concurred: "The pre-book numbers are through the roof, both on DVD and Blu-ray. Consumers keep calling and e-mailing from all over the world asking when they can purchase it. This is undoubtedly one of the biggest titles of the year."

While it's natural for sales people to be enthusiastic about a company's release, the director of Sunny Loves Matt also was excited by the movie. Veteran director B. Skow told AVN, "It's a totally different type of movie than Vivid normally puts out. It's an all-sex movie with tons of tease. Sunny does her first boy/girl scene and also a threeway with Monique Alexander and a guy. She also does a girl/girl scene with AnnMarie. The scenes are lit beautifully and the tease is shot POV style so you're real close to the girls. There's a good 15 minutes of tease before each scene."

Perhaps best of all, for fans seeking to maximize their entertainment dollar, Sunny Loves Matt features a long run time. Skow noted, "The movie is three hours and 20 minutes long. We took a lot of things like ads off the DVD so we could include all the scenes and extras."

For her part, Leone indicated that Sunny Loves Matt signaled the opening of a new career vista. The exotic starlet told AVN, "One of the last movies I made was The Sunny Experiment and one of the scenes I did was a threesome. I really wanted to jump into the scene, but I couldn't because of my contract. That's when I decided I wanted to go in a new direction with my career. I re-signed with Vivid to do more movies, and I'm looking forward to doing more scenes like the ones in Sunny Loves Matt."

Apparently she's not alone in that.

Sunny Loves Matt also stars Megan Monroe, Rebeca Linares, Charles Dera and Matt Erickson.

Sunny Loves Matt ships on March 6 and will be in stores March 13. For more information, contact David Peskin at (866) 466-6969 ext. 108 or [email protected].
