An amateur teenage astronomer notices an odd object in the sky and contacts Marcus Wolf (Charles Martin Smith), a professional astronomer who dies before he can alert authorities. 

One year later a journalist investigating a Treasury Department official's resignation uncovers a reference to a so-called 'Extinction-Level Event,' prompting the president to make an official statement.  He reveals that a seven-mile wide comet is approaching earth that will annihilate mankind upon landing, unless a military team led by Captain Spurgeon Tanner (Robert Duvall) can successfully destroy it from space.  The mission is risky, but it's the world's only hope for survival.

Deep Impact was a commercial success, garnering $349 million internationally.
