Wrestling Tie-In Sparks High Interest in Jewel De'Nyle Movie

CHATSWORTH, Calif. - Sinsation Pictures reports that The Notorious Jewel De'Nyle & Shelley Martinez is shaping up as the company's fastest-selling release to date, thanks to fan interest in pro wrestler Martinez.

According to Sinsation president Paul Marco, the online trailer for De'Nyle's movie has received over 9,000 hits in just four days. The company expects the first pressing of the DVD to sell out quickly.

"Turns out a lot of these fans requesting the DVD are from the mainstream market," said Marco. "They are wrestling fans that have been waiting for a long time for a chance to see Shelly naked and this is their chance. And by what I see, it was worth the wait. She is a knockout with a near-perfect body."

Martinez gained a large fan following while wrestling in the ECW federation as Ariel. She was released from her ECW contract in May 2007 and has since moved on to join Total Nonstop Action Wrestling league.

Inspired by the pinup fetishism of Bettie Page, The Notorious Jewel De'Nyle & Shelly Martinez features the two stars in BDSM-themed scenarios; Martinez does not perform hardcore sex. The movie is the first release from De'Nyle's production company Platinum Jewel.

"The popularity of Shelly Martinez and Jewel De'Nyle is unbelievable and I'm hoping to put the two of them in a wrestling ring," said Marco. "I figured Shelly went on Jewel's turf so now Jewel should go on hers. Who knows? It could happen. I plan on contacting Shelly¹s promoters to see if it can be put together."

The Notorious Jewel De'Nyle & Shelly Martinez streets Feb. 11. The movie will simultaneously be available on VOD through sinsationpictures.com, which is powered by AEBN.
