Deep Impact – Trailer

Deep Impact is a 1998 science-fiction disaster-drama film released by Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks in the United States on May 8, 1998. The film was directed by Mimi Leder and stars Robert Duvall, Elijah Wood, Téa Leoni, and Morgan Freeman. The plot describes the attempts to prepare for and destroy a 7-mile wide comet, which is expected to collide with the Earth and cause a mass extinction.

Another “space impact” film, Armageddon, was released about two months after Deep Impact in the United States. Deep Impact’s greater scientific credibility was recognized. Armageddon fared better at the box office, but Deep Impact was still a major financial success, grossing over $349 million worldwide on a $75 million production budget. Both films were similarly received by critics, with Armageddon scoring 41% and Deep Impact scoring 46% on the Tomatometer.
