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 (Ciarn 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.

Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider
Johnny Whitworth as Roarke Carrigan/Blackout
Fergus Riordan as Danny Ketch
Ciarán Hinds as The Devil
Violante Placido as Nadya
Idris Elba as Moreau

He....is.....batshit.....crazy....

Ok, I am no SFX expert by any means, but what is with the 8 year old's Halloween make-up. How is that necessary? All they would need are a few dots for tracking.Right?
knocturnalzen10 - 2/2/2012, 5:59 AM
hope he doesn't say that fire with fire line again
AlexDeLarge87 - 2/2/2012, 6:20 AM
The action and Ghost Rider himself are full of win! But the story is going to suck!
marvel72 - 2/2/2012, 6:21 AM
i thought they just set fire to his head,maybe just wishful thinking.

Devil Ghostbuster movie film action 12

The 3D trailer looked pretty good.

I used to be ok with Nicolas Cage but now he makes me cringe.

"Knowing" was good though : )

Please have these scenes pre cgi in special features

Did Nicholas Cage join Cobra Kai?

No mercy!!
KNIGHT3000 - 2/2/2012, 6:39 AM
I think... I'm starting to feel this a bit. Especially after watching GUNSMITH's video post.
LucasMend - 2/2/2012, 6:42 AM
I don't think Cage can get any more sick than that lol
KNIGHT3000 - 2/2/2012, 6:44 AM
evyllsummer

KOBRA KAI! Hahaha, nice.
SuperFrost - 2/2/2012, 7:01 AM
Why Cage.... with all the great actors that could have been Ghost Rider......Why Nick Cage??????
Daniellantern - 2/2/2012, 7:08 AM
Cage looks better with that sfx make-up. I'm really looking forward for this movie.
THORION76 - 2/2/2012, 7:33 AM
The enemy deserves no mercy now does he YES SENSAY. Someone get a bodybag yah ha ha hah ha. Your the best of aaaalll nothings going to ever keep you down. LOL
THORION76 - 2/2/2012, 7:35 AM
SuperFrost I agree.
13echo - 2/2/2012, 7:39 AM
Why does he want to save the son of Satan anyway hasn't he ever seen the Omen....which brings me to my next thought I wonder if this Kid (Danny) is really little Daimon Hellstrom....HMmmmm
hoodedjester - 2/2/2012, 7:54 AM
as much as I don't care to see cage in another movie - I'll probably go see this movie. Gusto is right - can only be better than the last one
PaulRom - 2/2/2012, 8:02 AM
Looks like The Crow to me.
jimoakley666 - 2/2/2012, 8:10 AM
That bike is gorgeous. Much better than that big old OTT gay thing from the first film. That looked like some kid with a metal fixation doodled it in the back of his maths book. This new bike however... Wow.
patriautism - 2/2/2012, 9:52 AM
I mean I am no supporter of Nick Cage, but you really can't judge a movie by a production still of an actor during the CGI process. We have no idea what the make up is for, but I'm fairly certain that it has something to do with the process.
OrganizedChaos - 2/2/2012, 10:05 AM
again i think this movie will be that action popcorn movie, but not expecting a whole lot, but i will check it out
Fogs - 2/2/2012, 11:12 AM
Hahaha the director was laughing at him in the 2nd pic, he didn't needed the mask, it was just a prank.
THORION76 - 2/2/2012, 3:01 PM
I just thought about something screw all this dumbass fighting about which CBM is going to be the best/better and take your spoiled asses out and go see all of them. We need to enjoy the sucess of these movie's while we can because one of these days either the people or the movie industrie are going to get tired of them. I hope Marvel can keep on being bold with there choices of characters to put into movies and put out some more underground/non super hero type CBM's. I think they can take alot of smaller heros and put them in the movies with the big 4 as sort of a Marvel team up/War Machine in Iron Man 2 style movie.
nowtheresaBATman - 2/2/2012, 3:26 PM
The new bike is way better than the old bike atleast. Wish I could say the same for Johnny Blaze!
AlibiBreakfast - 2/2/2012, 4:05 PM
This shows the "how," but not the "why." Sony is unable to make even decent comic book movies and Nicolas Cage is among the worst actors to ever walk Earth.
cwatts22 - 2/2/2012, 5:24 PM
Andy Serkis would've been better.
Alvahnomicron - 2/2/2012, 7:56 PM
This Nic Cage has put a shitload of effort into tryin' to get it right a 2nd time around. I shall give him this chance. If SOV is no good, I will hit him in the face with a pie...
...a pie with an iron in it...
AUSSYACE - 2/3/2012, 1:28 AM
Looks better than the first one...
