Universal Pictures Home Ent. will show Justin Dec's Countdown on home entertainment platforms, soon. The release will take place in early January on various formats. Rated PG-13, this horror title focuses on a killer app', that can determine when the user will die.

Byrne (The Wolf of Wall Street), Talitha Bateman and Peter Facinelli. A look-ahead to the film's impending release are hosted here.

Dec has talked about the film and its themes. At Collider, Dec said of the story: “what’s this movie about? What does this mean? If you take away the magic of it all, it’s a story about’s a story about how people cope with death. And if you found out you were going to die, what would your priorities be?” Well, your priorities would probably not be showing up for work, for the week. Dec also mentions that the film is about our growing addiction to technology: “I want it to be there in the subtext. I didn’t just want to say our phones are killing us — a lack of balance is what’s killing us.” Technology continues to creep into everyone's life. And, Dec's first feature will cover all of these topics and more.

Countdown will show on home entertainment platforms on January 7th. On this date, Countdown will be available on most Digital platforms.
