We’ve had a Hobbit trailer.  We’ve had Dark Knight Rises trailers.  We’ve had John Carter trailers.  But Craig Ferguson’s favorite geek-to-film adaption is getting the short shrift.  Behold: the new trailer for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (Ghost Rider 2, if you prefer).  As February release, we’re a little closer to this one hitting the screens.

Is it just me or are the Nic Cage quips in this trailer making you think “Evil Dead Lite,” too?

Comments

  1. The first installment was surprisingly not-horrible. This one could actually be sort-of-OK. As a fan of cheesy action-horror, that’s a pretty good thing for me.

  2. John Warren says:

    I agree with Patrick.

    Oh, and it’s “Vengeance.”

  3. I thought the first Ghost Rider flick was awful. I’ll see this one, but probably not at the theater (unless it hits the local $2 cinema late in its run).

  4. Chris Hero says:

    I tried my best to watch the first Ghost Rider movie. It was objectively awful and somehow worse than Daredevil.

  5. I also agree with Patrick. Ghost Rider seems to know it’s place and does well in its arena of cinema. I know the difference between fine dining and a cheeseburger… and sometimes I *do* like eating a good cheeseburger.

  6. Ian Boothby says:

    The director of Crank? Yep, I’m in. Also really good writers.

  7. Naveed says:

    Ghost Rider was a different movie, cant say it was great but it was certainly not terrible. Lets give it a chance, worst case they will reboot it in 5 years like they did with Hulk (a few times). If they could only get daredevil right….

  8. MBunge says:

    The Crank guys being involved is concerning. Crank was a really good movie, but the sequel and some of the other stuff I’ve seen from them was not just bad, it was the sort of bad that makes you think they’ll never be any good again.

    “f they could only get daredevil right”

    They need to just give in and try Daredevil as a TV show.

    Well, the idea of a blind man fighting crime has already been done once, and fairly well. Remember Longstreet? The blindness mattered in that series; in a Daredevil series, it wouldn’t.

    SRS

    But Ghost Rider wasn’t a cheeseburger. Hell, it wasn’t even dog food. It was a pile of moldy garbage stuck to the bottom of a McDonald’s dumpster.
