ULTRA EXCLUSIVE: FIRST TRAILER FOR SYFY CHANNELS NEW ADAPTATION OF "THE PHANTOM" WITH RYAN CARNES


It's finally here, the trailer for SyFy channel's upcoming mini series "The Phantom" is here, and you can watch it over at my official YouTube channel.
Ultra charming Ryan Carnes, who became popular after his famous role in "Desperate Housewives" plays Kit Walker, who after his father's sudden death inherits his super hero mantle. As the new Phantom he vows to fight crime and injustice all around the world.
Beside Ryan Carnes, Isabella Rosellini will guest star as villanous Lithia, the head of an experimental mind control program. The mini series will be broadcast sometime next year.
I must say I wasn't amazed by the trailer. This new adaptation of the famous purple hero looks too contemporary for my taste and looks like any other secret agent/detective show. I haven't seen any of the breathtaking adventure and glamoros splendor of the original Phantom. But since I like Carnes so much I'll give this mini series a benefit of the doubt. After all I like the colour and the costume as well.

  1. I don't like it. I don't like that it is contemporary, I don't like main characters "origin" story, and I'm not particularly fond of his costume.

    Still, if I pretend really hard that this has nothing to do with Phantom, this could be a decent action series. :)

  2. my point exactly. We'll watch it as the mini series, but it sure won't launch a follow up TV show, as it was planned during the preproduction.
