I’ve been searching this movie’s name on this site for years and every reply had different movie title suggestions that unfortunately didn’t match what I was looking for. Leaving this movie’s name the most unresolved mystery of all times. Nevertheless, I’ll never give up on it, that’s what matters most.
I’ll do the best I can to clarify every detail I can remember from that movie as much as possible.
The movie appears old, possibly from the 1980’s, 90’s, or 2000’s, I’m not sure. It’s an American Sci-fi movie in English I saw on TV in color twice in my adolescence. I don’t know anything about any of the actors/actresses’ names. I’m not even sure if it’s a TV movie either.
In the movie, a scientist has a rival whom he forces to cancel some sort of launch. At one point, the rival scientist was seen with his driver holding his enemy and his enemy’s friend at gunpoint unaware that it was all being recorded on camera. Then when the rival scientist is at some sort of presentation while giving a speech and after the good scientist and his friend escape with the help of his imaginary, ghost-like “girlfriend” with blonde hair wearing a white dress and the driver has been dealt with by the good scientist, some reporters show the footage involving the gunpoint to everyone and they mention and claim at one point that the rival actually “discovered New Jersey” instead of some new planet or something.
At the end, after the rival scientist has been arrested when trying to flee to no avail, the good scientist closes his eyes and grasps firmly a special somewhat magic, space stone he has in one hand and uses in order to turn his beautiful, somewhat ghost-like, imaginary woman girlfriend whom he has been in love with since probably the beginning into a real woman at the end of the movie.
At one point in the movie, I also remember the good scientist was playing chess with the imaginary, ghostly-like woman too.
