Director Michael Bay has offered fans an apology for his critically-ravaged disaster movie Armageddon, insisting he would re-shoot the blockbuster if he was given the chance. The movie, starring Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck, was the biggest grossing release of 1998, raking in over $553 million (£345 million) at the global box office. However, critics hated Armageddon, and now Bay admits the whole project was rushed and marred by a series of problems during production. He says, "I will apologise for Armageddon, because we had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks. It was a massive undertaking. "That was not fair to the movie. I would redo the entire third act if I could. But the studio literally took the movie away from us. It was terrible. My visual effects supervisor had a nervous breakdown, so I had to be in charge of that. I called (fellow director) James Cameron and asked, 'What do you do when you're doing all the effects yourself?' But the movie did fine."
