LOS ANGELES, CA — The Mayans predicted that the end of the world would happen on December 21, 2012, but what would happen if Armageddon were to arrive a few months ahead of schedule? More importantly, what would you do if you found out you only had five days to live? Wicked Pictures has released the first trailer for award-winning director Brad Armstrong’s two-disc DVD blockbuster, Countdown.
As the trailer unfolds, it is revealed that a group of fringe astronomers have been monitoring a rogue asteroid. They've discovered that Vesta (the second largest asteroid in the solar system) has fallen out of its regular orbit due to a collision with several other objects in space. It’s the size of Arizona and weighs 300,000 metric tons — and it’s hurtling towards earth at approximately 220,000 miles per hour. Should it reach our planet, life as we know it will end.
With this fascinating concept in place, the DVD’s compelling story follows several groups of people as they spend their final days preparing for the inevitable. From the President and his Cabinet to the everyday man on the street, everyone prepares for “The End” in different ways. Some “prep” with courage, some with fear and others with unexpected humor.
Actor / director Armstrong has secured a typically high-powered cast for his latest couples-oriented mega-production, with Wicked Girls Jessica Drake, Kaylani Lei and Alektra Blue sharing the screen with 2011 AVN Best Actress India Summer and other acclaimed performers, including Misty Stone, Dana DeArmond, Lezley Zen, Seth Gamble, Michael Vegas, Bill Bailey, Jack Lawrence, Derrick Pierce, Xander Corvus, Rocco Reed and industry veteran Randy Spears in a special non-sex role.
Countdown arrives in stores nationwide April 18, 2012.
