For all the people who love to talk out of their ass about how much Vivid sucks … well apparently, they are sucking all the way to the bank. Their latest release starring Montana Fishburne, who Mike South recently said “Montana Fishburne may have a famous father, but she’s a nobody. Sorry.” Well that nobody just moved over 25,000 pieces in the first 30 days. Just so we can get some perspective here, many studios are reporting that they aren’t moving more than 1,000 in the first 30 days of release and a really good release will move 2500 in the first 30 days. 2,500 vs 25,000. That is off the charts amazing. So let’s do the math. If a good feature film will move 2500 pieces at a rate of $12 (typical wholesale cost of a quality feature film) – that’s $30,000. Montana made Vivid $300,000 just on first month wholesale DVDs. That doesn’t include future DVD sales, international distribution, VOD, cable and hotel rights, and the projected shit ton of money they will make on her website they created.
From TMZ – Montana Fishburne officially has plenty more opportunities to piss off her father — we’re told her first XXX movie was such a hit … the porn company that shot it just offered her a multi-picture deal.
Vivid Entertainment prez Steve Hirsch tells TMZ, the first shipment of Montana’s porn sold out across the country — more than 25,000 copies in total — and we’re told even more DVDs were placed on backorder.
According to Steve, Vivid has officially offered Laurence Fishburne’s 19-year-old daughter — aka “Chippy D” — a multi-picture deal to cash in on all the success … although it’s not clear how many adult flicks that actually entails.
As we first reported, Laurence’s close friends offered to buy up every last copy of Montana’s porno for $1 million — but by then it was too late … the DVDs had already been sent out.
No word yet if Montana will take Vivid up on their new offer.
