I think I already saw this one...

And as I recall, the book was way better than the movie.

-- LIMA -- Dozens of people living in a Peruvian town near Lake Titicaca reported vomiting and headaches after they went to look at a crater apparently left by a meteorite that crashed down over the weekend, health officials said on Tuesday.

After hearing a loud noise, people went to see what had happened and found a crater 20 metres wide and 7 metres deep on an uninhabited plateau near Carancas in the Puno region.
I think this is where the alien microbes infect all the dummies who come up and sniff the crater... and then we have to wait for some unlikely Hollywood anti-hero to save our fragile, not-too-bright asses.
Experts from Peru's Geophysical Institute are on their way to the area 1,300 km south of Lima to verify whether it was a meteorite.

"We've examined about 100 people who got near to the meteorite crater who have vomiting and headaches because of gasses coming out of there," Jorge Lopez, health director in Puno, said.

Yep ... an alternative script is that the space rock lands in LA or some other North American metropolis and tens of thousands show up to get a sniff. Of course the local news crews will already have beaten them there and be broadcasting in a strange garbled sort of voice ...... All your medias are ours..... as the helicopters begin to spiral out of the sky..............

Global warming caused the meteor to hit the earth somehow - give the environuts enough time to 'think' about it and they'll 'prove' it to you!

Could this not just be a case of radiation overexposure? Alien microbes sounds a bit far fetched to me.
