* TheCriterionCollection: [[http://www.criterion.com/films/578-armageddon/ Spine # 40, to be exact.]] This was the final film they released on LaserDisc and one of the final films released on that format before Hollywood and Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo switched to DVD, which Disney did starting with the [[WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyGoldClassicCollection Walt Disney Limited Issues and Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection]] after starting with a WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyMasterpieceCollection DVD of ''Disney/MaryPoppins'' the year prior.

* CaliforniaDoubling: The New York City scenes at the beginning were actually filmed in the Spring Street Financial District of Los Angeles. They actually manage to cover this up seamlessly for the most part, except for one shot of a guy in his car where you can see palm trees in the background.

* CreatorsApathy: According to Creator/BenAffleck on the DVD commentary:
--> I asked Creator/{{Michael|Bay}} why it was easier to train oil drillers to become astronauts than it was to train astronauts to become oil drillers and he told me to shut to the fuck up. So, that was the end of that talk.
** Regarding the line of "they don't know jack about drilling":
---> I mean, this is a little bit of a logic stretch, let's face it. "They don't know jack about drilling"? How hard can it be? Aim the drill at the ground and turn it on.

* MathematiciansAnswer: in some markets, this film was advertised as starring "Oscar winners Ben Affleck and Billy Bob Thornton". While it is true that both these men won Oscars, neither of them won for acting.
* MoneyDearBoy: The reason why why Billy Bob Thornton was in this movie, which he wasn't shy to admit as soon as his contractual obligation to advertise the movie ended. He did say, however, that he didn't think it was that bad of a movie.

* OldShame: Subverted. In an interview with ''Miami Herald'', Michael Bay said "I will apologize for ''Armageddon''", and explained how being forced to film the whole movie in 16 weeks caused the crew's performance to suffer, but later added on his website's forum that his words had been taken out of context and he actually was proud of the movie.
