In the future the earth's core suddenly ceases to spin, spawning a series of catastrophes worldwide.  A crew of scientists are sent in a special craft to the planet's center; once there, they plan to detonate nuclear blasts at strategic locations to launch the core back into motion.

Complications occur along the way however, and crew members struggle for solutions to save the planet from certain destruction.  Meanwhile, above ground, a hacker is employed to keep the entire project a secret to prevent worldwide panic.

The Core was a commercial success, earning $73 million at theaters.
