Gay Porn Times has confirmed that Falcon Entertainment has acquired Massive Studio, the boutique label founded in 2003 by director John Bruno. It is the latest episode in gay adult’s ongoing consolidation. The studio told me Massive’s catalog (14 films) and website are now under the Falcon umbrella, joining the Falcon Studios, Jocks Studios, Mustang Studios and Falcon International labels. “John has developed a strong brand that will perfectly compliment our other studios,” company Director of Promotions Troy Prickett told me yesterday. “Massive will become an important part of Falcon Entertainment’s move to having strong online properties.” CLICK HERE for more details…

The relaunched Massive website (CLICK HERE) is scheduled to go live today with fifty erotic vignettes. The site is being launched in advance of the Folsom Street Fair this weekend in San Francisco, where Falcon will unveil a joint Mustang-Massive booth display. A free one-day trial membership will be offered to fans at the festival.

Mr. Bruno told me he believes the Massive and Mustang aesthetic are a good match. “Not many other websites offer that kind of masculine, muscular men,” he said. “Most of them go the RandyBlue or CorbinFisher route. So this is going to be something different.”

He said a DVD titled THE MEN OF MASSIVE will street October 28, which collects eight scenes originally streamed online and featuring a mix of new and proven talent. Mr. Bruno also confirmed new Massive Studio content will debut in a similar fashion — that is, they will debut new scenes online and then compile them for DVD release further down the line. “But I am looking forward to returning to my HARD COPS and HARD MECHANICS series at some point,” he said.

Performers set to appear at the Massive-Mustang Folsom booth include Dillon Buck, Jake Dakota, Wolf Hudson, Dominic Pacifico and Josh West, as well as Steve Cruz and Leif Gobo, who wrapped BLUE MOVIE for Mustang earlier this week.

Falcon’s acquisition of Massive Studio is the latest in a string of similar moves: Titan Media purchased the MSR Videos catalog several years ago; and Channel 1 Releasing absorbed both All Worlds Video and Catalina Video.

This year alone, Dark Alley Media acquired PrimePork Studios, Raging Stallion Studios purchased High Octane, and Bear OmniMedia purchased Brush Creek Media.

    well they already tried to benefit from another studio’s name by naming a new model of theirs, “Colt” so now with this news of Massive coming on board it looks like they once again have no focus to what works with Falcon. boy are they desperate over there. i haven’t watched anything from their studio for years! Get a grip Troy!

    denis – I think perhaps you need to get a grip. Bruno is now apparently the top director at Falcon, so it only makes sense that they would buy out his old studio as part of the deal. It’s just business.

    And in return for a small equity stake they probably got the catalog cheap I agree just good deal making.

    Lot of consolidation among the ole DVD Studios on the way The Webbies are killin em!

    Denis – you are obviously clueless – Troy had nothing to do with it – the owner of Falcon, Steve Johnson, did! DUH.

  5. denis on September 25, 2008 12:45 pm

    you all cannot deny that the days of falcon leading the pack, so to speak are dead! not since mr. rutherfords rein have we seen anything half as good come out of that studio. chi chi did good, but only together with rutherfords crew! it is business, you are right, bad business, more of the same from mr. johnson and his crackpack.

    Except for the fact that JC is completely wrong in saying that Falcon bought the DVD library, they did not, they only partnered on the website.

  7. Stanly on September 25, 2008 3:35 pm

    Massive who? Good luck with that!

  8. J.C. Adams on September 25, 2008 4:28 pm

    Hey, TJ — Thanks for the comment. But I went over the details of the acquisition with Falcon directly. They told me they bought Massive Studio’s catalog and website.

    Regards,

    I’ve always really liked Massive’s movies…hope they keep up the quality.

    Maybe TJ should have written the PR since he knows so much. Also, to the brilliant Denis: “more of the same from mr. johnson and his crackpack.” You are obviously an idiot, the deal was made, well before his departure, by the biggest crack-pack of them all, Tina Montgomery – now what do you have to say? I mean does it take a rocket scientist to figure out that decisions made by the former disgruntled employee, who has resorted to being quoted on the DK site, will be felt for some time to come? Use your brains people, if you have any.

    I find John Bruno’s work, both at Massive and at Mustang, to be some of the hottest porn around. In fact, of the porn DVDs that I have purchased, as opposed to merely renting, over the last five years, half of them are directed by Bruno. His tastes must coincide well with mine. He likes well-built, unshaven hairy guys, as do I, and reaally butch sex.

    Normally I’d just tell Denis that just because he doesn’t care for the product doesn’t make it bad, but the level of his vitriol clearly displays an ax to grind. Whether he’s a disgruntled ex-employee, or a particularly nasty competitor, I don’t know, but it’s clearly personal.

  12. Brian on September 26, 2008 5:36 am

    Cunty- You know that it is pretty sad when anyone resorts to being quoted on the DK abortion. A sure sign of being a “Z” Lister.

  13. Blah-Blah-Blah on September 26, 2008 6:27 am

    Bruno belongs in the Steele, Donovan, Blakk class of Directors. Blehh.

  14. TJ on September 26, 2008 9:14 am

    JCA,

    Darling, you need to contact John Bruno directly who told me Pulse Distribution bought the DVDs and Falcon partnered on the website.
    :)
