Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is now slated for a February 2012 release. They just uploaded the first official trailer online and it looks much better compared to the first movie. The effects and CG they used are more gritty and hardcore which is truly what the Ghost Rider deserves. I felt that the first treatment he got was a little too light and PG-13. Hopefully we see a totally different side of the Rider in this sequel.
Here’s the trailer:
Nicolas Cage returns as Johnny Blaze in Columbia Pictures’ and Hyde Park Entertainment’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. In the successor to the worldwide hit Ghost Rider, Johnny – still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy – and possibly rid himself of his curse forever. Directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Screenplay by Scott M. Gimple & Seth Hoffman and David S. Goyer. Story by David S. Goyer. Based on the Marvel Comic. Produced by Steven Paul, Ashok Amritraj, Michael De Luca, Avi Arad, and Ari Arad.
Looks like after watching Underworld: Awakening in January 2012 I’ll be lining up again on movie theaters for this one. 😀
