Staff Picks (past events)Space Film Festival at HarvardRepertory Series Archive



SPECIAL GUESTS: Alissa J. Haddaji (Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian), Martin Elvis (Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian), and Benjamin Weiss (MIT)

1998 • dir Michael Bay w/Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton, Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler, Will Patton, Steve Buscemi, William Fichtner, Owen Wilson, Michael Clarke Duncan, Peter Stormare • 151 min • 35mm

In his typical over-the-top manner, Michael Bay unleashes Bay-hem in outer space. When a planet-threatening asteroid is discovered on a collision course with Earth, it’s up to irascible, expert oil driller Harry Stamper (Willis) and his team to dig a hole on the asteroid and detonate a bomb that will split it in two and save everyone.

Staff Pick! Cal: “The NASA Nerd-O-Nauts don’t want you to know this is in The Criterion Collection.”

“Armageddon peels your eyelids back and blows your eardrums out until rational analysis is moot.”
– Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post
