Synopsis / Plot
The story opens detailing the initial discovery of comet Wolf-Biederman by high school student Leo Biederman (Elijah Wood), who's at a telescope party with his local astronomy club. One year later, after overeager TV reporter Jenny Lerner (Tea Leoni) stumbles onto a story about the approach of an E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event), President Beck (Morgan Freeman) is forced to address the nation and reveal that a comet the size of Manhattan is on a collision course with the Earth. The planet is not defenseless, however: a spaceship has been constructed with the sole purpose of landing on the comet, planting nuclear devices, and blowing the "dirty snowball" off course. On board the space ship "Messiah" is the aging veteran of many assignments, Spurgeon "Fish" Tanner (Robert Duvall), who is twice as old as anyone else in the crew. But, even as the "Messiah" mission gets underway, the men and women of the Earth prepare for the worst, which appears increasingly likely to happen.
