Though Rotten Tomatoes may have rated it poorly, Armageddon is a well-loved movie about the period of time after NASA discovers that a huge asteroid rivaling the size of Texas is due to impact the Earth in under a month. NASA then puts together a rag-tag team of deep core drillers in an attempt to save the planet.
– NASA actually uses Armageddon as a part of their management-training program and asks new managers to find as many errors in the movie as they possibly can. So far, 168 have been found.
– This is the only film that allows the actors to wear real NASA space suits, as these suits often cost around $3 million each.
