Astronomers discover a comet that they believe will crash into Phoenix, Arizona. They attempt to warn officials, but no one believes them.
Similar to Fire in the Sky (1993) besides similar titles. Both movies take place in Arizona and have stars from the terminator franchise. Michael Biehn from this film starred in The Terminator (1984), and Robert Patrick starred in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).
You can't miss us, there's a big white arrow pointing right down on us!
During the comet strike, the Hyatt Regency Hotel (with its distinctive Compass Room revolving restaurant on the roof) can be seen crumbling from the shock wave. As the credits begin, the smoldering cityscape is shown (something about the Phoenix will rise from the ashes)...with the hotel virtually unscathed.
In the movie's premiere telecast, the sequence showing the impact and results lasted 4 minutes. In subsequent airings, the sequence was shortened to 2 minutes.
