New Purple-Tinted Images From SyFy’s The Phantom Mini-Series

10 Comments

Like the SyFy Channel’s latest attempt to resurrect Philip Jose Farmer’s “Riverworld” novels into a new ongoing series (see what I did there?), I get the feeling their attempts at bringing back The Ghost Who Walks will be just as unsuccessful. Thus, we have a 4-hour mini-series that will act as a backdoor pilot, premiering later this month on June 20 at 7 p.m. ET/PT on the SyFy Channel. In case you were still not sold on the new Phantom yet, or you wanted to be sure it was something you had no interest in, here are a new gallery of pics from SciFiWire.

Here’s the trailer from last year for those who missed it:

Ryan Carnes stars as Kit Walker, aka the new Phantom. The movie co-stars the lovely Sandrone Holt (“Resident Evil: Apocalypse”) as Guran, Isabella Rossellini as Dr. Bella Lithia, Cas Anvar as Raatib Singh, Cameron Goodman as Renny Davidson, and Jean Marchand as Abel Vandermaark.

Paolo Barzman directs the 4-hour miniseries.

    costume sucks… they should have kept it as original or atleast the mask, and the ring little bit bigger

    The costume needed an update but this isn't it. I like the armor plating and the hood, but that's it. Those stripes are stupid and there should be a little more purple to it. I like the technological aspect of the suit though. I saw a clip, and it's basically the Batman Begins suit but more sci-fi (can withstand more punishment) and has radio and such installed in the head gear. But otherwise it looks pretty bad. The movie costume looked better.

    Just watched the miniseries. I thought the reboot was great. Renewed the concept for a new generation.

    I liked, it´s a new era so why not a new Phantom???

    But did they have to make the suit so gaudy? I'm glad it wasn't a complete travesty but I dunno, the suit needs a little more fine tuning. More purple, more black, less shiny. I'm not feeling the visor/mask.

    The series seems decent, the suit its self is great but the mack is a little cheezy. I think all in all it will do great. Looking forward to it
