The new movie sees Nicolas Cage reprising his role as Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, this time addingIdris Elba, Ciaran Hinds, and even Christopher Lambert into the mix.

It’s directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the filmmaking team best known for Crank andCrank 2. The guys are taking the frentic Crank model and applying it to the Ghost Rider franchise, which has the trailer feeling, after they get through the long shot of fire, like it’s had a Red Bull or two.

It ends with a kid asking Cage how it’s like to pee when he’s in fire mode, Cage saying it’s awesome, then closing with Ghost Rider, seen from the back tastefuly (ha!), shaking his money-maker, using it like a flame-thrower.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is set to be released on February 17, 2012 and is directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the duo behind CrankCrank: High Voltage, and Gamer. They insist it isn’t a sequel.


Nicolas Cage returns as Johnny Blaze in Columbia Pictures’ and Hyde Park Entertainment’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. 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. Directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Screenplay by Scott M. Gimple & Seth Hoffman and David S. Goyer. Story by David S. Goyer. Based on the Marvel Comic. Produced by Steven Paul, Ashok Amritraj, Michael De Luca, Avi Arad, and Ari Arad.
