Anchor Bay Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of The Philadelphia Experiment (2012), director Paul Ziller's reimagining of the time travel cult classic. The film stars Nicholas Lea (Kyle XY), Michael Paré (of the original 1984 movie), Ryan Robbins (Falling Skies), Emilie Ullerup (Sanctuary), Gina Holden (Saw 3D) and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), and streets on June 11th.
Official Synopsis: Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. In 1943, a secret government project attempted to create a cloaking device that would make warships invisible. But during the first test, the USS Eldridge successfully vanished... and could not be found again. 70 years later, the Navy destroyer momentarily reappears on a Pennsylvania runway allowing the sole surviving crewman to escape and a local lawman to board. What is behind a sinister reactivation of the project? Where will the massive ship materialize next? And what will become of two men trapped in a time/space catastrophe? The Philadelphia Experiment will delight fans of the original film and create new debate among conspiracy theorists about this allegedly true military operation from the past.
The Blu-ray release of The Philadelphia Experiment features Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio. Anchor Bay has yet to detail the disc's extras.
i thought it was the original too. seems odd the remake would get a blu ray before the original. They should of put Nicholas Lea (X files) instead of kyle XY cause i think more people know him more for the X files. i sure do
I bought this title only because Nicholas Lea (Alex Kryzek in "The X-Files") is in (what ever the reason is) and because I met him last year in Person (and he was VERY nice in Person). This movie has his pro and contra. Of ocurse its a bit cheaper made than the original 1984s version. Pro: Michael Pare is playing this time the Hunter. Contra: Malcolm Mcdowell has only approx. 5 - 10 min screen-time.
Pro: the movie/story looks for me faster than the original. Contra: not the best SFX.
For me was the best thing: Nicholas Lea was in. Thats all!
