Outer space can hardly contain all the stars that round out the extraordinary cast in this spellbinding thriller about a five-mile-wide meteor on a catastrophic collision course with earth. Sean Connery (“Dr. No”), Natalie Wood (“West Side Story”), Karl Malden (“Birdman of Alcatraz”), Brian Keith (“The Hallelujah Trail”), Martin Landau (“Crimes and Misdemeanors”), Trevor Howard (“I See A Dark Stranger”) and Henry Fonda (“The Best Man”) shine in this sci-fi special effects spectacular that rockets across the screen like a speeding comet. A brilliant scientist, Dr. Paul Bradley (Connery) is summoned to Washington by NASA chief Harold Sherwood (Malden), who informs him that a huge meteor will smash into earth in six days. The only chance to destroy the meteor is to work with the Soviets, revealing to them top nuclear secrets. But as the clock is ticking, fragments of the meteor come crashing to earth, causing avalanches, earthquakes and tidal waves.
