New Ghost Rider Trailer Drives Up
The spirit of vengeance is near

15 December 2011  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Yahoo

For his second go-around on the big screen, Nicolas Cage’s cursed hero Johnny Blaze (better known to the world as Ghost Rider) has been handed over to the demented directing duo of Neveldine/Taylor to up the antic ante. We’ve already had one trailer back in August, and now a second promo is online for Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance. Check it out below.

The team behind this not-a-reboot-sort-of-a-sequel is in damage control mode with a certain sector of the audience at the moment, given the lacklustre reception handed to a nearly finished version of the movie shown at this year’s Butt-Numb-A-Thon.

But we’ll reserve judgement until we see the whole thing, which promises to be laden with the usual craziness from the boys. You’ve got slow motion action, guns a-plenty and even Mr Rider spitting bullets back at the bad guys.

This time around, we find Johnny hiding out in the depths of Eastern Europe, trying bitterly to struggle with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter. But then he’s contacted by an obscure church sect and tasked with preventing a child from falling into the clutches of Satan himself (Ciaran Hinds). If he rescues the lad, the church will remove his unholy burden. If not? It’s apocalypse time!

With Idris Elba, Fergus Riordan and Johnny Whitworth all among the cast. Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance is out on February 22.

RE: was on the fence.....
Nice! This is the Ghost Rider film the first one shoulda been! Action scenes look spot on. Baddies look a damn sight more dangerous than Wes fucking Bently did when he overdid the mascara in the first one, and it looks like it's got just the right amount of humour in it! I'm feeling quite optimistic about this one I must say! Oh yeah - Chrisopher Lamert's in it! I'm so there!! More
