From the Director:
“I’m Justin Dec, the writer/director of the 2019 horror thriller Countdown. I’m a huge fan of your site and alternative movie posters in general. I recently made this alternative poster for my movie to celebrate its release on Netflix this Tuesday, February 1st. I wasn’t a big fan of the way the studio marketed the movie and I always had this exact poster and tagline in my mind. What I love about this poster concept is how it represents something we all see countless times a day: our phone screens. They have become such a huge part of our lives; a distraction from dealing with our jobs, our relationships and even our own dreams and desires. How sad is it that we’re just scrolling our lives away with no idea how much precious time we actually have left? For most of us, the idea of dying is something we don’t ever want to think about, but what if you could find out when it was going to happen? That’s the question at the heart of this concept. By bringing the Countdown app front and center, nestling it in with other everyday apps, this inescapable truth suddenly becomes very tangible and eerily ordinary. If it was that easy, would you dare to tap the icon? Would you want to know? As a fun little Easter Egg, I’ve also set the clock so that the hour, minute and second hands are all on 6: 666. I hope you enjoy the poster!
