Help ID Artwork From A Film

Anyone have a clue what movie this could have possibly come from (if it even came from a movie)?

I don't know if it is production art, potential poster art or nothing.

Thanks for the help!

One of the Philadelphia Experiment flicks?

Good Burger? (I’m with Jon2 — I think it is Philadelphia Experiment related.)

Where did you find this? Looks more like a book cover, to me.

I bought it on eBay a long time ago, over a decade at least, have just been cleaning out a storage unit I have and deciding if I'm keeping/selling/dumping things.

It could be a book cover though I'm pretty sure I bought it as something movie related, though the seller could have been wrong.

The piece is huge, 30" x 40" total (including the non-painted portion)


It does seem to have some similarities to The Philadelphia Experiment from watching the trailer, but the lead actress doesn't wear red, but maybe that was artistic license.

Maybe it was a movie poster for something overseas.

Did you try using Google Image Search? I found nothing. Nice looking artwork though.

You must keep it forever for historical value. Think of the children.

Looks more like a Universal studios disaster tour ride with everyone inside on the left which doesn't look like a ship watching the mayhem outside on the ship to the right.

If not The Philadelphia Experiment maybe The Final Countdown?


...and now I have that song in my head. Thanks, Big Dave.

Maybe The Final Countdown, though I didn't see anything in the trailer to make say for sure.

Do either of the movies feature someone on fire?

Does ebay save your history that far back? Could you find more info in the listing/emails of that purchase?

Not that I'm aware of. I can't even remember if the original seller even knew to start with or I just thought it looked cool

It reminds me of a scene from a Philip K. Dick novel I read last year called Eye in the Sky.
