NYCC'11: Ghost Rider Panel Highlights
New details about Ghost Rider emerge from the NYCC panel. The Ghost Rider panel was more like the Sony Pictures panel as new footage from Underworld and Total Recall were shown as well.
|-Dave Sardy, composer of Zombieland, is doing the music for it.
-3D trailer for Underworld played first. A giant über Lycan was revealed.
-Scenes from Total Recall were next. New scenes were revealed that weren't shown at SDCC.
-Behind the scenes featurette for Ghost Rider was revealed. The footage featured director Mark Neveldine on skates being dragged by a motorcycle to capture footage. Reportedly, this was more dangerous than what the actual stuntmen were doing in the film.
-Behind the scenes footage ended with F*cking Your Sh*t Up in 3D to wild roars from the crowd.
-Quotes from Brian Taylor:
"We never had a 2nd Unit director cause that's the most fun so why would we have someone else do it?"
"We just wanted to break cameras, and break stuntguys and break our own necks."
"Nicolas Cage can actually piss fire, no CG required."
"His superpower is he sucks your soul out"
On the MPAA rating:
"You can burn as many people as you want"
-A new extended trailer was revealed with a lot more footage of the Ghost Rider. CG reportedly looked very realistic.
-Brian stated that the movie won't relate to the first movie so much... that it's not a reboot or a sequel but it's four years later and he has to be redeemed "which is what happens when Idris Elba comes knocking on his door"
-There was a cool shot where one guy shot a machine gun at Ghost Rider's head and then he spit out the bullets.
-The directors said they originally wanted Nicolas Cage to star in the Crank films and they'd love to have him appear in Crank 3.
-Someone asked what Nic Cage smells like.....the answer "Vanilla" ._.
-They're calling it a "PG-16" movie and they found ways around the MPAA... they say they have lots of F-bombs and bodies everywhere and they got creative to make it as violent as they wanted.
-Blackout was briefly shown.
-A fan suggested that Mark and Brian direct Deadpool and the crowd roared.
-Another fan yelled "Green Lantern" and Mark responded "Jason Statham is... Green Lantern"
-The Penance Stare will return for Spirit of Vengeance. They wanted it to be more performance-based, so they got an actor to do it... and he said that the Penance Stare will make you feel bad for the bad guy.
-A scene from the trailer... Ciaran Hinds as the Devil saying to Ghost Rider "Worst effin' mistake I've ever made!"
-Anything he touches or rides, it becomes hellified and he uses a lot of different vehicles."
-Lastly, no Spider-Man footage. Reportedly holding that for Wondercon.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is an upcoming 3D superhero film based on the Marvel Comics antihero Ghost Rider, scheduled to be released in theaters on February 17, 2012. The film is a loose sequel to the 2007 film Ghost Rider. It will be directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Cage will reprise his role as Johnny Blaze / Ghost Rider. It is the second film to be released under the Marvel Knights banner after 2008's Punisher: War Zone.
Set several years after the first film, Johnny Blaze is in self-imposed exile from the world. Blaze has become a tormented soul, convinced that his powers are a curse. Former stuntman Blaze is then approached by Moreau, a member of the monastic order of Michael, the warrior angel. Moreau seeks a protector for a mother and son duo who are being pursued by a figure named Roarke – a fellow with a detailed knowledge of the Ghost Rider and his different identities over the centuries.
