Adonis Pictures Joins Paladin Video for US DistributionVAN NUYS, Calif. - New company Adonis Pictures has announced that Paladin Video will now take on all of Adonis' U.S. distribution, effective October 1, 2005.
Founded in late 2004 by former GayVN Managing Editor Jeremy Spencer and his business partner Billy Hudson, Adonis Pictures is quickly making a name for itself as a competitor in the gay market. Using only the best talent and crew working today, Adonis' goal is to continue making high-end, quality product and joining forces with Paladin will ensure just that.
"We are really thrilled to be coming on board with Paladin," Spencer said. "Being part of a group of such incredibly talented people, many of whom I have been a fan of for many years, is almost surreal. From Colt and Bel Ami to Hot House and Studio 2000 to Kristen Bjorn and MSR, Paladin distributes only the highest-end product and we are humbled to be associated with such amazing companies."
"I had heard of Paladin long before I even got into the industry," Hudson comments. "I knew that the Paladin name had a lot of history and this is the best thing that could have happened to Adonis. We are incredibly excited to grow as a company with Paladin in our corner."
Stan Loeb, owner of Paladin Video, said, "We are very pleased that Adonis has joined the family of companies that are distributed by Paladin. They're the new kids on the block and we look forward to a long and happy future with them."
The first movie that Paladin will represent is Adonis' fourth feature, a Michael Zen-directed vampire movie entitled Thirst, starring superstar Rod Barry in dual roles and Adonis Exclusive Andy Kirra. The release date for that is October 28, 2005, just in time for Halloween.
Paladin will carry Adonis' three previous titles – Running Wild, Lust Counseling and Bed Heads – as well as Mike Donner's new film Star Crossed, which will release in November.
