Ep. 370: Deep Impact (1998)


Episode 370 of the GenreCast takes us back to 1998 to discuss the OTHER asteroid movie of that year, Deep Impact. Back on Ep. 291, we talked all about Michael Bay's take on the genre, so this week we're talking Mimi Leder and her approach to the disaster film. Deep Impact boasts a star studded lineup, including Tea Leoni, Morgan Freeman, Elijah Wood, James Cromwell, and many more. It's a race against the clock, sort of, as America tries to stop an asteroid from wiping out life on earth. With a similar plot to Armageddon, we discuss what sets Deep Impact apart. We're talking twin movies, nationalism, disaster movies, and much more in our look at Deep Impact.
