LOS ANGELES—Wicked Pictures has released the much-anticipated Countdown, a big-budget sci-fi drama that follows several couples as they learn that a massive asteroid is on a collision course with Earth. 

Called Vesta, the asteroid is the size of Arizona and is rocketing toward the planet at 200,000 mph. Scientists say it will create the equivalent of a 15.2 earthquake, and that life as we know it will end.

AVN award-winning director Brad Armstrong's two-disc DVD blockbuster for Wicked Pictures stars Wicked Girls Jessica Drake, Kaylani Lei and Alektra Blue.

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. As Countdown unfolds, the cast realistically portrays a diverse cross section of ordinary people in extraordinary situations.  

In addition to the 168 minute, 16x9 widescreen HD feature, the two-disc DVD includes a plethora of special features, including a behind-the-scenes featurette, “The Girls of Countdown,” extra sex scene footage, a digital copy of the movie, and three bonus Wicked sex scenes.

Countdown costars India Summer, Dana DeArmond, Misty Stone, Lezley Zen, Brad Armstrong, Randy Spears, Derrick Pierce, Jack Lawrence, Rocco Reed, Bill Bailey, Seth Gamble, Xander Corvus and Michael Vegas.
