Mercenary Issues 'Lex Deluxe' Edition of <i>Black Reign</i>

CANOGA PARK, Calif. - Mercenary Pictures has released Black Reign 12: Lex Deluxe Edition, the latest volume of the company's AVN award-winning ethnic line.

Black Reign 12 stars Donna Red, Leilani Li, Misti Love, Lexani Banks and Mya G opposite Mercenary owner Lexington Steele, who directed the movie and appears as the sole male performer in all five scenes.

"I have always positioned Mercenary's ethnic titles -- Black Reign, Ebony XXX and Black Moon Risin' -- as the company's premier productions," Steele said. "I've seen many companies short change the budgets of their ethnic movies and give them a low priority. However, presenting black and ethnic women on a pedestal and shooting them in some of the best locations available has always been a point of pride with me."

Steele emphasized quality as the prime directive in his choice of directors and performers. Black Reign was named AVN 's Best Ethnic-Themed Series for 2005 and 2006.

"Mercenary doesn't shoot any girl that walks through our doors," he said. "We're only interested in casting the sort of women who know what they sexually like and who are comfortable working in adult. All of our directors, including Tina Tyler, Jimmy Scaffnetti, Marco Banderas, Don Picone and myself, know good gonzo is about bringing out the performer from everyone in front of the lens."
