I havent seen the movie but how much time past between the discovery of ELE and the event? Also, how does the name ELLE fit in with the lady in the affair? Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9107938
Hmmmmmm....from the time of the "resignation"
of the movie's character, Mr. Rittenhouse, to
the actual in-coming astroid was about 1 year.
At first they thought the "ELLE" was a proper
name of a person--someone that Rittenhouse was
seeing on the side--then Tea Leony(the heroen)
speaks with the President in the company of the
CIA, and he calls it by saying: "What do you
know about "E.L.E"?
That's when it dawns on her that it isn't a
person but some code name. She googles "E.L.E."
and comes up with "Extinction Level Event."
What is the first name of the woman that our
CIA Chief was supposedly seeing? Does that
sound like some code name for an in-bound comet?
