Go, Russia, Go
Somebody speaks about American patriotism?

Comrade Andropov should be a national hero of Russia. Only we can make precise electronics work using rusty metal rod.

What? Hewlett-Packard? US-made? It's those little guys from Taiwan who make the world go round.

Americans? OK, they can drill!

In fact, I liked the movie. It's silly to be waiting for emotional depth or philosophic discoveries in a movie like Armageddon. It's done for entertainment and it entertains! It's fun. Fun for your eyes, fun for your ears. Do you need something else? Ok, what about Bergman? Well, people, there is Bach and there is Bobby Rush. Where do you go to dance? To conservatory? I doubt it. As for action films, Armageddon is not the worst one.

Trivia

This film and Deep Impact (1998) had an unfriendly back and forth, as both projects were green-lit, and filmed through 1997 and 1998. Michael Bay insulted Paramount's project by comparing Téa Leoni's star power to Bruce Willis', leading to Leoni saying that statement was "so Michael" and that it was not clear how firing guns would defeat an asteroid. When Deep Impact (1998) opened strongly at the box-office in May 1998, Paramount then pointed out all the problems that their rival film was having, leading to Willis accidentally revealing that this film was filming new scenes in Europe and Asia.


Quotes

Narrator: This is the Earth, at a time when the dinosaurs roamed a lush and fertile planet.
Narrator: A piece of rock just 6 miles wide changed all that.
Narrator: It hit with the force of 10,000 nuclear weapons. A trillion tons of dirt and rock hurtled into the atmosphere, ...


Goofs

When Harry shoots at A.J, the wound appears on one leg. However, in the next shot, when A.J is hopping, it is clear that the wound has changed legs


Crazy Credits

All initial UK '12' Certificate videos came with the full promo video for Aerosmith's: "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" before the film started. The video only came with the limited widescreen or even more limited 'double feature' boxed video with 'The Making of Armaggedon' as a bonus video. Also some outtakes (1 per character) were featured at the very end of the credits with text underneath saying 'In loving memory of who gave his life saving our planet.' (The outtakes only came with the initial copies on video.)


Alternate Versions

British TV premiere on Channel 5 (March 2002) excluded the wide shot showing the damage caused to New York by the meteor shower.
