Sweet ‘Ghost Rider’ One Sheet Blazes In, Hype Fizzles Out…

Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance 3D

This morning Columbia Pictures released the super sweet one sheet for Crank directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (in theaters February 17, 2012), which is basically the exact same thing as the previously displayed theater standee.

But that’s not the story. This beautiful piece of art is overshadowed by this past weekend’s rash of online negativity after the studio screened the film at BNAT in Austin, Texas. The result? Negative is an understatement…

GHOST RIDER 2 makes GHOST RIDER 1 look like DARK KNIGHT,” said Jordan Hoffman. Our friend Devin Faraci from BadassDigest tweeted, “GHOST RIDER 2 manages to make me look fondly back on GHOST RIDER. Unbearable.” Peter Sciretta from /Film added, “SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE is better than the first film, and the character design is drastically improved. Unfortunately the script is a boring mess, the film lacks a proper budget and the post converted 3D looks pretty horrible compared to films like HUGO.

BURNED. Pun intended. I guess it’s a good thing Sony rushed to make this sequel so the rights didn’t revert back to Marvel. Way to look out for the fans… Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance Poster
