Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Movie Trailer


Was anyone clamoring for a sequel to Ghost Rider? Anyone? ANYONE??? Like it or not it’s coming. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengence arrives in theaters in 2012. It tells the further tales of the cursed superhero Johnny Blaze.

I have to hand it to Nicolas Cage. The guy loves comic books and he’s obsessed with playing those characters in movies. Nevermind that he’s older now and probably not physically right for these kinds of movies anymore.

He wasn’t always like this. Nicolas Cage has had a fascinating career. Early on he seemed to relish acting in mostly quirky independent films. Later on he became more mainstream, eventually becoming an action film star. Along the way he even won an Academy Award for Best Actor. Now, seemingly, after achieving box office, artistic and financial success Nicolas Cage movie choices now seem to be aimed at fulfilling his own personal fan boy  interests. It’s slightly similar to the career path of Samuel L. Jackson. Which to me…is awesome. Might as well do what one loves right?

Well, in any event I think the only reason why this movie has been made is out of the sheer will of Nicolas Cage. On the plus side this new sequel seems to be more in line with the original comic book. It also has an impressive  cast and is directed by the duo behind the fun Crank films. Which could be the right tone for something like this.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengence stars Nicolas Cage, Idris Elba, Ciarian Hinds, Christopher Lambert and Violante Placido. The film is directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. It is scheduled for release February 17, 2012.

Official synopsis:

Set several years after the first film Johnny Blaze is in self-imposed exile from the world. Blaze has become a tormented soul, convinced that his powers are a curse. Former stuntman Blaze is then approached by Moreau, a member of the monastic order of Michael, the warrior angel.
