The documentary shines a light on the three of the biggest nuclear threats we face including an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, and human error.

Are you ready for a REALLY scary movie? Countdown to Zero, produced by Lawrence Bender (An Inconvenient Truth and Inglourious Basterds) illuminates just how close we could be to witnessing a massive nuclear catastrophe that could launch us into the next ice age. And no, it doesn’t star Bruce Willis or Will Smith. The documentary shines a light on the three of the biggest nuclear threats we face including an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, and human error. The doc includes interviews with President Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, Tony Blair as well as former CIA operative Valerie Plame. Hey, it even gets a thumbs up from UN Secretary Bann Ki-moon.
