Armageddon is a 1998 American science fiction disaster film directed by Michael Bay, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and released by Touchstone Pictures.
The film follows a group of blue-collar deep-core drillers sent by NASA to stop a gigantic asteroid on a collision course with Earth.
NASA scientists, led by Dan Truman, plan to trigger a thermonuclear detonation at least 800 feet (240 m) inside the asteroid to split it in two, driving the pieces apart so both will fly past the Earth.
NASA contacts Harry Stamper, considered the best deep-sea oil driller in the world, for assistance.
All seems lost until Independence's Armadillo arrives. However, flying debris from the asteroid damages the triggering device, requiring someone to stay behind to manually detonate the bomb. The bomb successfully splits the asteroid, avoiding the collision with Earth. and Grace get married, with photos of Harry and the other lost crew members present.
