Not only are these movies basically identical in plot, look at those movie posters! We almost thought they were for the same film. Both films tell the story of a doomed earth with a deadly asteroid heading straight for it. The big difference? Everyone remembers Armageddon; no one remembers Deep Impact! There were minor differences, and hugely different endings (no spoilers here!) but at their core, the two films were about the same exact thing. Clearly, fans responded to their fave telling of the story at the box office!
