From what I remember from this movie, it looks 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 partially saw on TV in color twice in my adolescent years. I don’t know anything about the actors/actresses’ names.
In the movie, a scientist has a rival scientist whom he forces to cancel some sort of launch. At one point, the rival scientist was seen with his strong driver holding his enemy and his enemy’s friend at gunpoint unaware that it was all being recorded on a security camera. Then, when the rival scientist is at the conference and after the good scientist and his friend escape with the help of his imaginary, ghost-like “girlfriend” and the strong 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 he 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 uses a special somewhat magic, space stone he has in one hand 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 remember the good scientist was playing chess with the imaginary, ghostly-like woman too.
So, please, it’s been 12 days and I still haven’t gotten a straight answer.
