New Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance trailer aims to melt your face off

While not quite as crazy as that first Ghost Rider 2 teaser—in which, if you'll remember, Nicolas Cage's fiery alter-ego actually urinated fire—this first full trailer clues us in to what the movie's actually about. And, yes, blows up lots of stuff with hellfire.

The plot seems pretty straightforward: Innocent little kid is chosen by Evil Dudes (played by Ciaran Hinds and the original Highlander, Christopher Lambert) to be the vessel for the Antichrist, and Johnny Blaze gets recruited by Awesome British Black Guy (Thor's Idris Elba) to save both the kid and his own soul.

Also: Explosions.

Ironically, the more I hear about the plot, the less interested I get—because a not-insignificant part of me wanted this to be the Crank of superhero movies: balls-to-the-wall insanity. We'll see come February precisely what we get.
