Movie News

There's much confusion about GHOST RIDER: THE SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE (read our previous article here for the deets), but regardless of that there's still much hope that this flick will do justice to the fan-favourite Marvel character. It has a solid, wildly inventive writer/director team in Neveldine & Taylor (CRANK 1 & 2), improved FX, and a streamlined, non-origin story to have fun with, and if rumours are true Nicholas Cage is delivering one of his trademark batpoop insane performances. These first set of official stills from the movie are also very encouraging - most notably Ghost Rider's awesome new look! Check 'em out...

Here's the official synopsis:

"It has been several years since making a deal with the Devil and Johnny Blaze, living in self-imposed isolation, finds himself as the only person who can help save 10-year-old Danny and ultimately the world thanks to his unwanted and uncontrollable power his ability to transform into the hell-on-wheels monster known as The Ghost Rider."

Hopefully we'll all be able to forgive the 2007 effort when GHOST RIDER: THE SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE opens in February next year.

What say you, gang? Looking forward to this, or was one GHOST RIDER enough? Let us know with your comments below!

The first Ghost Rider was OK on first viewing, IMO, but doesn't have very much replay value. I do like Nick Cage and really hope this new film does the character, and his potential, justice this time. The bike, I notice is nowhere near as stylish-a-design as the original. In fact, it looks plain boring by comparison which I don't know is a good thing or not.

GR is a property which deserves to do well so I hope it's at least as successful as the first (which apparently made $228,738,393 worldwide).
