NEW YORK CITY — Lucas Entertainment has gone live with a promotional microsite tied to the pending release of its "Men of Israel" sexpic. The all-male blue movie is believed to be the first shot on location in the country with an all-Israeli cast. will feature exclusive content including director Michael Lucas' production blog, as well as "behind-the-scenes video clips and images, profiles and galleries of the stunning cast," said Patrick Collins, Lucas Entertainment's publicity director.

"This is the premiere site for information about this groundbreaking film."

Lucas called the film his "most personal and important project to date." It has been the subject of scrutiny on a variety of gay gossip and media blogs, as well as from mainstream news outlets such as Yedioth Ahronoth, one of Israel's largest newspapers.

"I travel to Israel at least twice every year, and I knew Israel would provide a group of gorgeous newcomers and breathtaking vistas to film," Lucas said. "This is an important film not only for our industry, but also for Israel itself."

Five hardcore vignettes will begin streaming on the microsite beginning July 6. The two-disc DVD with limited-edition packaging is scheduled for release July 22.

The cast includes freshly recruited local talent Jonathan Agassi, Avi Dar, Morr Fox, Guy Ronen, Matan Shalev and Naor Tal.

A forthcoming edition of the studio's "Michael Lucas' Auditions" pro/am series, set for release in early September, also will feature footage shot in Israel.
