LOS ANGELES — Wicked Pictures announced today that it will award runner-up prizes to four contestants in their Beyond the Countdown competition, a writing challenge in which fans were asked to pen a sequel to the studio's Brad Armstrong-directed apocalyptic drama “Countdown.”
Second and third place holders will receive a DVD copy of “Countdown” and an Armstrong Blockbuster Pack containing the films “The Rocki Whore Picture Show: A Hardcore Parody,” “Speed,” “2040,” “Fallen” and “Coming Home.”
Those who finish in the fourth and fifth spots will take home copies of “Countdown” and “The Rocki Whore Picture Show: A Hardcore Parody.”
Wicked’s grand-prize winner will receive the aforementioned DVDs and be flown to Los Angeles on May 20 to join Armstrong and Wicked exclusive Jessica Drake for an afternoon visit to the Griffith Observatory, where they will feast at Wolfgang Puck’s Café at the End of the Universe and witness an actual eclipse through the Observatory's telescopes.
"Countdown” sets its story five days before a massive asteroid obliterates the Earth. The film stars Wicked Girls Drake, Kaylani Lei and Alektra Blue. India Summer, Misty Stone, Dana DeArmond, Lezley Zen, Seth Gamble, Michael Vegas, Bill Bailey, Jack Lawrence, Derrick Pierce, Xander Corvus, Rocco Reed and Randy Spears, in a non-sex role, round out the cast.
