Axel Braun (born Alessandro Re) is an Italian adult film producer and director known for his productions of porn parodies.
The son of Lasse Braun, he is an AVN Hall of Fame, XRCO Hall of Fame and NightMoves Hall of Fame inductee.
Braun has directed over 500 movies since 1990. Braun's movie Batman XXX: A Porn Parody was the best-selling and best-renting title of 2010 and Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody is to date the best-selling adult movie ever. Due to the success of Batman XXX, Vivid Entertainment created a new line to capitalize on the superhero and sci-fi genres called Vivid Superhero and Braun was named leading director for the initiative. In 2013, Braun left Vivid and signed an exclusive directing contract with Wicked Pictures to launch Wicked Fairy Tales and Wicked Comix, two imprints dedicated exclusively to fairy tale and comic book parodies.
Braun filed a federal lawsuit against 7,098 individuals who he alleged illegally shared digital copies of his movie Batman XXX: A Porn Parody on October 29, 2010. In May 2014, Braun announced two new policies for his productions, with the first being that he would no longer forgo the use of condoms in his videos, while the second is that he would require full-panel STD/HIV tests no older than seven days and personally cover the cost for the test if a performer's current test is older.
Braun was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2011 and into the XRCO Hall of Fame in 2014. He has won the AVN Best Parody award for seven consecutive years in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Braun is the only adult director to have won the AVN Director of the Year award more than once, as he has won four consecutive times in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. In January 2015, 24 XXX: An Axel Braun Parody became the first parody ever to win the AVN Movie of the Year award. Braun won the top award again in 2016 with Peter Pan XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, and in 2017 with "Suicide Squad XXX: An Axel Braun Parody" scoring an unprecedented AVN Movie of the Year three-peat.
Braun is the owner of Level 5 Post, a post-production company that supplies editing, authoring, graphics and special effects to many adult and mainstream companies.
