NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment, a leading producer of lifestyle media, announced today the release of Curiosity: How Will the World End? on DVD this month under its exclusive home video license agreement with Discovery Communications.
Thirteen centuries ago, Mayan priests warned of a global apocalypse that would end the world on Dec. 21, 2012. With the date quickly approaching, people are wondering if there is any truth behind the cautionary prophesy or if it is just a myth. Hosted by Samuel L. Jackson, this CGI special explores the five most probable cataclysmic events that could one day end life on Earth.
Discover how a mega-earthquake in small town Tennessee could shake the world to its core, how a super storm could submerge our major cities under water, and how geysers in Yellowstone could create a blast the strength of 1,000 atomic bombs. These events have already happened in Earth's four billion year history, but the real question is what comes next and can mankind survive?
This DVD includes three bonus episodes and has a total run time of 220 minutes and an SRP of $14.98. Street date: December 4, 2012.
