These movies are so similar, upon first look at the movie posters, you might actually think they’re the same thing. Honestly, the real difference here is that Bruce Willis is in the more successful movie (Armageddon). These films have the same exact plot, that an asteroid is about to hit the Earth and wipe out everyone. The people of Earth shouldn’t worry because a ragtag team has assembled to take on this asteroid and save everyone. In Armageddon, the team tackling the asteroid is American, whereas in Deep Impact the team is Russian. Minor details.
