See the Cast of ‘The Phantom’ Then and Now

Based on the classic comic-book character, the 1996 film 'The Phantom' starred Billy Zane as a seemingly immortal superhero who used his powers to fight crime. Sounds a lot like most of the superheroes we love these days, but comic-book movies of the '90s were definitely a little (okay, a lot) sillier. Seventeen years later, we take a look back at the cast of this campy superhero flick and see what they're up to now.

See the Cast of ‘The Patriot’ Then and Now

Roland Emmerich's 2000 film 'The Patriot' starred Mel Gibson as a South Carolina man swept up in the American Revolutionary War in order to protect his family.

The hit film also starred the late Heath Ledger in his second high-profile role. With the Fourth of July in mind, we thought it'd be fun to look back at the cast of this film 13 years ago, and see where they're at now.

10 Ridiculous Plans Made by Cartoon Villains

What separates a villain from a supervillain? It's simple: the scope, ambition and sheer, unbridled lunacy of their evil plans. A villain is practical and smart, and thinks ahead. A supervillain is dramatic and insane, and wants everyone in the world to acknowledge his or her demented genius

See the Cast of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’ Then and Now

Making a movie based on an amusement park ride doesn't necessarily seem like a recipe for success. But you can't argue with the results of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise, which was spun off from the Disney parks ride of the same name. In addition to being one of the most successful franchises in movie history, the films helped turn Johnny Depp from a quirky character actor into one of the biggest superstars in the world.

A lot of that success has to do with the first movie, 2003's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl,' being really, really good. With Depp and director Gore Verbinski reuniting for 'The Lone Ranger,' we thought it was time to see what those 'Pirates' are up to now.

Where Movie Prices Could Go After the $50 Mega Ticket

In an attempt to capitalize on the moment before the fervor of fandom surrounding 'World War Z' began to fizzle out, Regal Cinemas offered a $50 "megaticket" that included a digital copy of the movie, a poster, a small popcorn and a pair of 'World War Z' 3D glasses, in addition to admission to the movie. Yup -- $50 to see a Brad Pitt movie.

See the Cast of ‘Barb Wire’ Then and Now

These days, awesome comic book movies are everywhere, but in the '90s, the genre was very different.

In 1996, 'Barb Wire' was released, starring 'Baywatch' icon Pamela Anderson and described as a "post-apocalyptic remake of 'Casablanca' set in a strip club." We think it's high time to take a look back at Anderson and the cast of this very cheesy flick and see what they're up to these days.

Make Your Own Superhero Movie, Mad Libs-Style

Don't get us wrong -- we love superhero movies. We're all about going to the theater in the summer and sitting in the cold dark, watching costumed characters punch each other out as we shovel popcorn into our gullets until we almost puke.

That doesn't mean we can't admit that some superhero flicks can get pretty formulaic. Don't believe us? Try this Mad Lib we made and see if you don't wind up with something that sounds like a fairly plausible superhero movie plot.
