1998 Certificate: 12


There's only going to be one winner in the matter of Earth versus unstoppable asteroid, but President Morgan Freeman, astronaut Robert Duvall and plucky newshound Téa Leoni are out to save as many lives as they can before the space rock hits. Released two months before the bigger, dafter Armageddon, this is an altogether more tense and believable disaster epic with a raft of familiar faces including Elijah Wood, Vanessa Redgrave, James Cromwell, Dougray Scott and ER's Laura Innes.
