Due to a shuttle's unfortunate demise in outer space, NASA becomes aware of a doomsday asteroid that is on a collision course with Earth. It seems that the only way to knock it off course is to drill into its surface and detonate a nuclear weapon. But as NASA's under-funded yet resourceful team train the world's best drillers for the job, the social order of the world begins to break down as the information reaches the public and hysteria results. As high-ranking officials play politics with the effort, the drilling team all faces deep personal issues which may jeopardize humanity's last chance...
When NASA's executive director, Dan Truman (Billy Bob Thornton), makes the terrifying realisation that the Earth has just 18 days before it's obliterated by a meteor the size of Texas, he has only one option - land a ragtag team of roughneck oil drillers, led by their boss Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis), on the asteroid and drop a nuclear warhead into its core. Entirely re-mastered with bonus special features, spectacular special effects, laugh-out-loud humour, great characters, riveting storytelling and heartfelt emotion make Armageddon an exhilarating thrill ride you'll want to experience like there's no tomorrow!
