LOS ANGELES — AMKingdom's next feature movie “Saving Humanity” has generated steady media buzz both in mainstream and adult since it began principal photography last month, landing coverage ranging from Esquire magazine to MTV's Guy Code and the NerdReactor.com blog.
AMKingdom intends to seek a R-rating from the MPAA for the film, which will receive theatrical, DVD, VOD, and cable distribution. AMKingdom.com owner Kim Nielsen said he plans to first release “Saving Humanity” as an R-rated movie, followed by a Director’s Cut, which will include sex scenes.
Principal photography on “Saving Humanity” resumes April 27-May 2 and May 4.
In addition to adult industry media, Nerdist.com, NPR, MTV, ToplessRobot.com, and others have covered the making of the movie. James Deen leads the cast, while Andy San Dimas, Celeste Star, Riley Reid, Tara Lynn Foxx and Sativa Verte each have prominent roles.
The original feature also stars Skin Diamond, Tara Lynn Foxx, Cindy Starfall, Ana Foxxx, Anthony Rosano, Seth Dickens, and Beryl Aspen.
Some online publications sought out the high-profile Deen during their first experience on an adult entertainment set. “The film set is just as professional, efficient and hard working as any other in Hollywood, if not more so,” quipped ShalomLife.com writer Ele Boddie.
MTV’s Guy Code also had insight about “the craziest stuff we discovered on the set” of “Saving Humanity,” ranging from urban legends to the perks of being on a film set, adult or otherwise.
The nerd blog NerdReactor.com looked to gain more information on the technical and sci-fi aspects of the film by asking the cast to answer some video game and time travel questions, in line with the story arc of the project. Nerdist regular SexNerdSandra queried Deen on everything from robots and dildo packaging to masturbation.
ToplessRobot.com, home of “nerd news, humor, and self-loathing,” covered production aspects of the film, including the writing process.
Nielsen remarked, “Many productions, whether mainstream or adult, shy away from having the media get an inside peek. They want to keep as much under wraps until the film is released. We invited the media to visit the set of ‘Saving Humanity’ because we have an immense sense of pride about our project, and we think we’ve cast the most professional and gifted talent in the industry.
“By opening the doors to mainstream outlets, we’re able to shed some light on how our industry operates: in a professional, organized manner, just like any film production should. It’s a delight to see media help us break down myths about the adult industry.”
He added, “We enjoyed having the media visit during our initial shooting days. We’re looking forward to opening set to even more media at the end of the month.”
