Armageddon - Out of Synch
When the astronauts are boarding the space shuttle in Flordia, the president broadcasts a message to the World. You see some people in France listening to it, and a big crowd in India. In all the scenes the sun is shining. However, since it was 4:00 PM in Flordia, it should have been midnight in France and 2:00 AM in India

The point isn't whether they stayed up to see it or who was making the announcement or who figured it out, it's that the sun wouldn't be shining at midnight or TWO IN THE MORNING!!!

And why are people in India and France watching a broadcast from our president? Shouldn't their political leaders be the ones breaking the news to them? Why didn't any of the other countries try to find a way to stop this comet? Things that make you go hmmmmm.

Oh, come on Jade, of COURSE they'd be up @ 2am - every year, a billion folks around the world stay up late to watch the bloody Superbowl & Oscar telecasts live, so doncha think they'd do the same for a slightly more urgent, literally earthshattering event? Or would they think "Well, guess I'll turn in now. Gotta get some sleep - big day tomorrow! Earth could be destroyed, so I'll...(yawn)...sleep now & when I wake up tomorrow I'll know we were saved, otherwise I wouldn't wake up!" As for the world relying on the good old USA to be saviors, what's wrong with that? It's an American movie & everyone knows that in sci-fi blockbusters it's always up to the Americans to save us all. Just like "Independence Day"! God bless 'em!, says this (mostly sincere & only slightly sarcastic) Canadian. So: either the daylight-worldwide was a slipup, or (possibly) the director recognized (rightly) that cutting quick to a night scene would jar the audience & "take them out of the movie," even if only for the few seconds it took them to recognize the logic.

Maybe they ARE listening to their own version of their own leaders giving their own speech. It IS a movie, and maybe it's just a representation of what every country is going through by using America as a focal point.

Why would they tape an important broadcast like that so it can be shown at a more apt time? It is a mistake and silly logic will not change that.

Dang people! That was a world wide event happening! I know if a meteor was heading toward Earth I wouldn't care what time it was or who the heck was telling it to me!!

ok, if you turn the volume up... you can hear that the presidents voice is what they call a voiceover... and the radio stations are broadcasting in various languages... french, danske etc. As for the time of day... true continuity says night for france, but our instincts say the sun should be in the same place for 'all' to hear it at once

Have you ever heard of recordings ??? Broadcasting the announcements at night in India would make much sense, since most people would be sleeping :o)

Yes, the people did know that the asteroid was headed for the earth because Rockhound let it slip to the police at the club. After the club scene if you remember, there is a scene with Harry and Truman, Truman gets a message on his phone that states, I believe something along the lines of, "Dottie's gone public." After that Truman says to Harry, "Now the whole world knows." They continue to talk but I just wanted to clear that up.

No! Nobody knew about that the end of the world might happen tomorrow...NASA kept everything a secret so everybody went to sleep thinking everything was fine.

Actually 4pm in Florida would be 10pm in France, not midnight.

Why would they show it at 3 am when no one would see it anyway, because they would be sleeping?
