This Friday, the rider is back! The sequel to Marvel‘s 2007 Ghost Rider, once declared the worst movie of the decade, has a worthwhile film in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.
In Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Johnny Blaze (played, again, by Nicolas Cage) is still cursed with powers of the super natural and has hidden himself away from the world. That is, until he teams up with a sect of rebel monks to save a young boy. Battling a satanic cult and devil himself, Johnny may have finally have a way to rid himself of “the rider” once and for all- if he can save the boy first.
OK, so the premise sounds cooky, but what the films lacks in story is sure to make up in bad-ass action. This gritty new vision by directors Mark Neveldine, Brian Taylor (Crank) can’t be any worse than it’s predecessor (I hope).
Co-starring Fergus Riordan, Ciaran Hinds, Violante Placido and Johnny Whitworth a brand-new behind-the-scenes featurette has debuted via iTunes Movie Trailers. Check out the featurette below:
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance hits theaters everywhere this Friday.
I’m still crying over how bad the original Ghost Rider was. It managed to pack in every comic book and action movie cliché imaginable, laughable casting, an illogical script, wooden acting, and jarring direction for straight-faced amusement. But, the tears may be over.
The sequel to the 2007 film my have finally redeemed it’s soul with the help of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank 1 and 2)While we have no footage to give (when we do you’ll know) but we do have a first look at Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance by way of scans that appear in the upcoming issue of Empire.
Luke Gallagher, head chief cake to NB, saw the footage at SDCC and thinks ” Ghostrider himself looks menacing, nightmarish even. He’s an actually bad-ass this time, spits and pisses fire. The action is insane. Epic stunts with plenty of crazy Neveldine/Taylor camera angles. It’s Ghost Rider on crack!”
Boy, was there a lot of news today from the folks at Marvel films or what? PHEW!
The big news of the day comes courtesy of the Ghost Rider sequel, entitled Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, which is currently filming now with Nicholas Cage still in the title role. It appears that we know who the villain will be in this “hot” sequel (see what I did there? Because Ghost Rider‘s head is on fire?)
