Nic Cage may still be in the driver's seat as Johnny Blaze, but this sequel sees a whole new team behind the scenes in the form of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who are best known for the high-octane Crank films. That's the reason those of us disappointed by the first film are holding out hope that the sequel might be better.
Ghost Rider, as a concept, is a little over-the-top on its own. We think the best way to deal with that in movie world is to just embrace it. Parts of this trailer seem to do just that. There's a heavy focus on adrenaline-infused violence and intense action. Plus, Ghost Rider pees fire. No, really. In fact, for better or worse, that might be the best part of the trailer.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is due out Feb. 17, 2012. Based on this trailer, are you willing to give him a second try?
