‘Pirates’ pic unbuckled

Big-budget porn gets H'wood preem

HOLLYWOOD — Porn stars and pirates dropped anchor Monday at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theater for the red-carpet premiere of the $1 million porn movie, Digital Playground’s “Pirates.”

Starlets like Jesse Jane and Janine bared breasts as well as teeth for a cadre of photographers. Still clad in swashbuckling gear, a post-screening Evan Stone said he was “dumbfounded” to see himself on the silver screen for the first time.

Directed by Joone, “Pirates” measured its production in weeks rather than days and spent five months in post for special effects such as CGI skeletons.

However, the reality of watching a 129-minute porno proved too much for some audience members. The full house began to trickle out after an hour, preferring to wait in front of the theater and poke through their goodie bags, which, of course, included a copy of the “Pirates” DVD that goes on sale Sept. 26.

The cast included a bevy of actors who claim to live full time as pirates and have the wardrobes to prove it. Sal Santoro, who moonlights as captain of the Lord Blacksmith ship, said pirates and porn stars have a lot in common, besides a shared affinity for, er, booty.

“Pirates are outcasts who live by a certain code,” he said. “They’re good-hearted, but at the end of the day they have jobs to do.”
