Armageddon (1998) (part 7 of 13)

Well, it’s time for another sequence where some Dramamine would be handy. There are tons of quick cuts of various stuff happening at “Kennedy Space Center, Florida”, according to the ever-helpful caption. Of course, we didn’t really need that, since Truman just said they were all going to Florida, but let’s move on.

Voicing over this scene are several news reporters all talking about the dire situation that the planet is in. Of course, Michael Bay can’t just leave things at that, so we only get to hear a couple seconds of each news broadcast, with a few even being cut off in mid-sentence. Also, for some reason, CNN is the only network name-dropped here. The last of these newscasts states that “there could be a very serious problem.” I guess they’re a little behind.
