Trivia

Website Box Office Flops, which is "A Database Of Films That Failed At The Box Office", says of this movie: "RCR Media financed Phantom (2013) for $18 million and K5 Intl. sold foreign territories, which wasn't more than a handful of them. The submarine thriller staring Ed Harris and David Duchovny grossed just over $100k outside of the US. RCR originally tapped Sony to distribute the pic's domestic release, but RCR Media ended up self distributing Phantom (2013) in the US and went big with a 1,118 screen release - which opened to a disastrous $508,000, posting one of the worst per screen averages of all time at $454 for the weekend - placing far outside the top 10 at #23. Phantom (2013)'s theater count was reduced to 407 in its second weekend and posted an 88% decline in its second weekend with a $61,050 weekend and ended its run after just three weeks with $1,034,589. Self distributing would see RCR receive a small percentage of the gross from theater chains (Regal Cinema pays out only 34% to independent labels) and they would see back about $400k, which would barely put a dent in the modest marketing spend. Phantom (2013) went straight to video in most major markets, including the UK, Germany, Italy and Australia." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Demi: My crew has just returned from 76 days at sea. The Americans are massing naval assets in the Pacific. There must be a dozen boats better rested.
Markov: Squadron Command is insisting on the most experienced captain and crew available.
Demi: I'm being retired, remember? You should know that. Your signature is all over the transfer. Even if I wasn't, my boat will be in dry dock for months.
Markov: You won't be sailing your boat. You'll be sailing the B-67.

Well Worth the price of a Ticket
3 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, I am not a fan of Independent movies and find most boring or to artsy. I heard about Phantom for the first time when I watched a late night TV talk show. My interest was peaked so I went to see it an the local theater that shows this Independent movies. From the opening scene, I was hooked. My only issue was that unless you had seen other movies of this type, with the cast speaking English right from the beginning, you did not know that this was supposed to be Russian. But if you listened you could hear that they were talking about Russian locations, but the people that went with me had to ask me about 15 minutes into it if this was supposed to be Russian Navy. This movie hooks you and draws you into the life aboard a WW2 Era sub. Having actually been on this old sub as it sat in mothballs, I can tell you that there is no room for camera gear and how they filmed the inside with crew boggles me. Duchovny and Harris were spectacular in this movie and made the movie believable. The story line was very interesting and I was sad to see the movie end, but being based on a true story really peaked my interest and now I need more information. Please go see this movie, support this filmmaker, I am not associated with any of the movie or players, but for a Non Independent film watcher to love an Independent movie is really saying something.
