Apparently the Philadelphia Experiment was “based on actual events”. Yeah, that’s the ticket. I’m sure the military tried something wacky like this. They’re known for that. But did it actually result in time travel? Uh, that’s probably a bit of a stretch. In any case, check out the trailer for the Syfy Channel’s remake of 1984′s “The Philadelphia Experiment”.
A secret government research project tries reviving the World War II “Philadelphia Experiment,” an attempt to create a cloaking device to make warships invisible. When the experiment succeeds, it brings back the original ship (the Eldridge) that disappeared during the first test in 1943.
Starring Malcolm McDowell, Nicholas Lea, Syfy Channel regular Gina Holden, and Michael Pare, the star of the 1984 original.
Coming to Syfy July 28, 2012.
