‘Throwback Thursday’: ‘The Phantom’ (1996)
Happy Thursday everyone! We are already at another ‘Throwback Thursday’! This week has really flown by! Speaking of flying, did you know that only about 57% of the superheroes across both the Marvel and DC Universe can fly? Talk about interesting, superheroes use gas too, I guess! Speaking of heroes, I stumbled upon a really old ‘superhero’ movie the other day when I was cleaning out my VHS tapes (who else remembers those). If you haven’t seen this one, you have to see it just for the sake of saying you saw it… does anyone remember the movie The Phantom?
The Phantom is a 1996 American superhero movie that was based on Lee Falk’s comic strip The Phantom. The film stars Billy Zane as a immortal hero and his battle against all forms of evil. The Phantom also stars Kristy Swanson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Patrick McGoohan. The film’s plot is loosely inspired by three of The Phantom stories. The film was shot in California, Thailand and Australia.
The Phantom was released on June 7, 1996, and received mixed reviews from film critics all around the globe. Despite this, DVD and VHS sales were fantastic.
