I absolutely hated Sony’s 2007 Ghost Rider, so much so that it took the above wicked photo of Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze to rejuvenate my interest. Having just premiered on the Spike TV Scream Awards, the first ever clip from Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is burning up the internet, and while I’m still skeptical, at least now I’m excited…
Arriving in a blaze of fury on February 17, 2012, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor direct this time around and have apparently delivered something much more gritty than its predecessor. This charred-up and spit out version of Ghost Rider looks beyond rad, while maintaining that comic book atmosphere. What do you think of the clip?
“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.”
