Holy Hell: Full Trailer for ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’ Burns Rubber

You’ll forgive me, dear reader, if I admit something to you now – I have never seen the first Ghost Rider. Trust me, this was not out of some misdirected hatred of Nicolas Cage-starring schlock (if Con Air is airing on television, I will drop everything to watch it – everything), it was just the way it shook out. And it looks like I might never have to see that film, as Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine‘s next installment of the film appears to have just one thing in common with that first crack on the hellion superhero – star Nicolas Cage. That’s really all you need. When FSR hit Comic-Con earlier this year, our own Jack Giroux learned a number of things about the new film, including first and foremost, that this is a standalone story. Consider Ghost Rider removed from my Amazon Wish List for this holiday season.

The full trailer for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance has now careened its way online, and it doesn’t even remotely give a fuck about your stupid rules of the road. Hell, it doesn’t even care that much for the basic rules of mortality. This newest look at the film does not include Cage pissing fire (a shocking letdown), but it does include him vomiting it and whipping it. There are also a bunch of monks with tattoos and a lot of fighting and car-crashing and leather and ugly dudes, so yeah, it’s a Neveldine/Taylor film. Put on a helmet and watch it after the break.

The film’s official synopsis tells us that the film is about “former stuntman and bounty hunter of rogue demons Johnny Blaze [who] has been living in self-imposed exile, believing that his powers are a curse. But when he is approached by a member of a monastic order who is looking for someone to protect a mother and her son, who are being pursued by the devil in the figure of a man named Roarke, the Ghost Rider takes the case.” Sure! Also, it’s in 3D, so you can get the full force of that fire vomit coming at you.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance opens on February 17. [Yahoo! Movies]
