Axel Braun's 'Riley Goes Gonzo' Hits No. 1

LOS ANGELESRiley Goes Gonzo, the first movie of adult star Riley Steele under her contract with Axel Braun Productions, has reached the top spot in the AVN Top 200 sales and rental charts.

Directed by four-consecutive-time AVN Director of the Year Axel Braun, Riley Goes Gonzo ganered unanimously stellar consensus on many industry blogs and publications, including a 5A review on AVN.

“I knew we had something special here, but I can’t say I expected it to be this successful,” said Braun, “Riley infused the shoot with so much energy and sexual charge that we all kinda looked at each other and said ‘wow’, and I’m really happy to see that the viewers felt the same way.”

With award-winning videographer Alex Ladd behind the camera, and featuring ABP contract girl Aiden Ashley, Riley Goes Gonzo marks the first time Steele has ever done a blow-bang, both on screen and in real life.

“It was so awesome! Really intense, almost a cathartic experience,” said Steele, who will be seen next in Braun’s upcoming Snow White XXX. “Axel totally allowed me to push my sexual boundaries, and it’s incredibly rewarding to know that the fans love the new me … because there’s a lot more to come!”

The success of Riley Goes Gonzo is particularly sweet for Wicked Pictures, the exclusive distributor of all ABP movies. “Riley has a huge fan following, and Axel has been at the top of his game for years, so while this level of popularity was unexpected, it is not completely surprising,” said Wicked owner Steve Orenstein. “We’ve had a great year so far, with Underworld winning top honors at many award shows, and I’m just happy that we can keep making movies with the emphasis on quality and be appreciated for it.”
