Armageddon (1998)


Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

Michael Bay directed this science fiction action thriller in the When Worlds Collide tradition. After astronomy students discover a comet-asteroid collision, an asteroid fragment “the size of the Super Dome” threatens. It’s destroyed by a secret USA defense in space, but a large chunk veers off toward Singapore. With another asteroid “the size of Texas” en route, a plan is devised to send oil drillers to land on the asteroid and drop a nuclear device down a 1000-foot shaft, a scheme calculated to crack the asteroid into two halves, saving Earth.

NASA begins a crash program to train beer-besotted oil roughnecks for the mission. During a stopover to refuel at the Mir Station, the space station is accidentally destroyed, so a Russian cosmonaut also joins the team. Produced by Bay, Jerry Bruckheimer, and Gale Anne Hurd.
