Deep Impact (1998)

TV reporter Jenny Lerner (Téa Leoni) believes she is tracking down a sex-scandal story of Presidential indiscretion until she discovers a huge comet is on a collision course with Earth. Spurgeon Tanner (Robert Duvall) is the astronaut leading a mission to intercept the threat in space.

The chilling gravity of the situation is hauntingly evoked by the national lottery that’s put in place to choose who will “survive” in an underground retreat.


Director Mimi Leder adds gripping immediacy to executive producer Steven Spielberg’s loose remake of Rudolph Maté’s movie When Worlds Collide (1951) and caps it all with a spectacular display of epic destruction.
