Details Release Date: Mar 28, 2003; Rated: PG-13; Length: 135 Minutes; Genres: Action/Adventure, Sci-fi and Fantasy; With: Aaron Eckhart and Hilary Swank

The world's molten core has stopped spinning! The planet will be thrown into electromagnetic turmoil unless Aaron Eckhart, as a sexy professor with unwashed hair, leads a team of physicists and space-shuttle pilots in a journey to the center of the earth, where they must set off a series of nukes to get that hot and gooey global center on its axis again. The Core feels like the sort of thing you might have caught on TV during a rainy Saturday afternoon in the late '60s. It's a schlockier Armageddon crossed with Fantastic Voyage, minus the fun.
