“The Core” begins with a series of unexplainable events. People with pacemakers suddenly drop dead in Boston. Pigeons crashing into buildings, vehicles, and windows in London. The space shuttle goes off course to crash land in the Los Angeles channel.
Major “Beck” Childs, played by Hillary Swank, pulls out a map to figure out the new landing coordinates. Never mind that the “flying brick” has limited maneuverability when falling out of the sky to land.
Dr. Josh Keyes, played by Aaron Eckhart, figures out what is wrong with the Earth’s core. He gives his research to the White House science adviser and gets invited to the Pentagon for a briefing.
A motley crew of scientists, astronauts, and a hacker builds an “earthship” to save the planet. We take a journey to the center of the Earth to restart the core with nuclear bombs.
