An Early Look At Two Clips From ‘Ghost Rider’ Sequel

It’s hard to keep an open mind when everyone is literally bashing Columbia Pictures’ rushed sequel, Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance, opening in theaters February 17 from directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.

Taking the PR overseas, star Nicolas Cage stopped by Italian talk show “Che tempo che fa” to share two clips from the Marvel comic adaptation. You’ll find both clips at the 8:20 and 16:20 marks (with the second in Italian). Do either pique your interest?

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.
