Podcast: The Phantom (1996)

Digest the day away with our newest podcast episode: 1996’s The Phantom starring buff tan Billy Zane.

Evil 1930s guy Xander Drax (Treat Williams) tries to get three powerful shiny skulls so he can shoot a bunch of people with skull lasers. He enlists the help of secret cult member and all-around goon Quill (James Remar) and perpetually catsuit-clad aviatrix Sala (Catherine Zeta-Jones) to jet set around the globe to New York sets, jungle caves, and uncharted pirate islands. The Phantom (Billy Zane) tracks his movements in a purple suit with the help of his white horse and pet wolf (who can talk to horses). The Phantom made $5 million its opening weekend, ranking #6 behind instant classics such as Eddie and Dragonheart.

Some Notes
  • Fun fact: George Lucas came up with the idea for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull when he fell asleep in front of the television watching STARZ.
  • If anyone can confirm/deny whether Catherine Zeta-Jones is always wearing a catsuit under her clothes we would really appreciate it.
  • Where do you think The Phantom should have placed opening weekend? Please let us know if you're a Spy Hard superfan before providing input.
