Did you hear about that asteroid that passed by Earth the other day? Neither did we. Apparently we’ve had a few close calls over the years, and movies like Armageddon and Deep Impact (both released in 1998) explore the effects of an asteroid or meteor hitting the Earth. Both those movies, however, end with the planet still standing, even if it’s going to be difficult to find a Starbucks or free wi-fi for a while. In When Worlds Collide (1951), there’s no such luck -- our only hope is to catch a cab off Earth just before it’s demolished by a rogue star.
