                              ARMAGEDDON
                is now playing in theaters everywhere.

    An asteroid the size of Texas is heading directly toward Earth at
22,000 mph.  NASA's executive director, Dan Truman (BILLY BOB
THORNTON), has only one option -- to send up a crew to destroy the
asteroid.  He enlists the help of Harry S. Stamper (BRUCE WILLIS) --
the world's foremost deep core oil driller -- and Stamper's roughneck
team of drillers to land on the asteroid, drill into its surface using
an ARMADILLO ATV, and drop a nuclear device into the core.  On this
heroic journey, they face the most physically and emotionally
challenging conditions ever encountered ... to save the world and
prevent ARMAGEDDON.
