Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance Trailer
Nic Cage shows us his rings of fire

The devilish directing duo that is Neveldine/Taylor have released Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance's first trailer, and we've got it here for you below.

Before that, however, they unveiled a teaser poster to whet our appetites, and it's just as flame-based as you'd expect from a Johnny Blaze adventure.

Sure, it's essentially just the Ghost Rider's hand holding onto a metal flaming chain, but with the trailer arriving with it, we can't help but get all, um, hot under the collar.

 

As you can tell, it's definitely not a simple sequel to the previous Ghost Rider after all, this one has him vomiting flames at people's heads and pissing like he's got a broken flamethrower attached to his groin.

Simply put, it's a balls-out Neveldine/Taylor movie, complete with all the exploding cars, manic pacing and extreme extremeness as you'd expect from the guys that brought us Crank and Crank: High Voltage.

Still, it's very exciting stuff, and we can't wait to see more footage. Can this not-actually-a-reboot-or-a-sequel work? Can Johnny Blaze ever be a proper "hero" on screen? We guess we'll only find out when Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance tears through cinemas on February 22, 2012.

Easy On The Ghost Rider
That trailer looks promising. When I think of Neveldine/Taylor, I think of undisciplined shaky cam and editing to fast that's it's hard to tell what the hell is going on. They seem to have toned that down for this. Hard to believe it will be 5 years since the first one when this opens in February 2012. More

That's more what you'd want from Ghostrider. Why these guys got canned on Jonah Hex I don't know, their movie couldn't have been as close to awful as what Warners ended up with. Crank is absolutely bloody mental, I think that's the route this is taking by the looks of this. Well, it is about a guy with his head on fire. More

I've only seen a few scenes of the first...
and had to change channel as I was getting cramp from cringing so much. But this looks fun. I hope it does well, even just to prove you don't have to reboot every comic book movie if it doesn't do too well at box office or actor/director moves on etc. More
