'Amazônia: Release' Unleashed on Wholesale Market

SAN FRANCISCO — Athletic Model Guild's "Amazônia: Release," the second half of the two-part gay porn thriller from AMG Brasil, is now shipping wholesale nationwide via Paladin Video and internationally through COLT Studio Group.

The title, which currently is available to the public through the AMG web store only, will go on sale at retail locations worldwide Dec. 7.

Both DVDs rotate around the story of a young American, late Buckshot Man Danny Roddick, who is captured and held hostage by a band of savage Amazon Indians. Filmed in the topical rainforest outside Rio de Janeiro, the film has an edgy, fast-paced plot, the company said, which allows Roddick and costars AMG Brasil cover man Ricardo Onça to flex their acting muscles.

“We’ve put a lot of sweat in our previous tropical productions, but this really is our most ambitious film to date,” AMG President Dennis Bell said. “There’s so much attention to detail, and we had the hottest and horniest with us on the set. The final orgy sacrifice is a signature trademark of our Suruba [Portuguese for “orgy”] line."

"Amazônia: Capture and Release" is the first of AMG Brasil’s features to be released as two separate DVDs. Both films contain hardcore, outdoor action of group scenes and interracial sex. Roddick stars alongside a group of 16 Brazilians, many of whom have graced previous AMG Brasil box covers. DVD extras include model galleries, XXX trailers and DVD commentary by Dennis Bell, Christopher Trout and Roddick himself.

“'Amazonia: Capture'" Part One has topped the JRL Charts and has been a great seller for us since it launched last month,” Bell said. “We’re sure with the full story on both disks now available, we won’t be able to keep it on the shelves.”
