Official Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Movie Site "Blazes" to Life
12.29.11 by BJSprecher
With less than two months to go before its theatrical debut, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance has finally spawned an official movie site. Directed by Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine (Crank movies), Spirit of Vengeance is a strange sort of sequel. It keeps Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider from 2007's Ghost Rider, but reboots everything else, including Ghost Rider's origin, look and powers. While the videos and still images on the new site are nothing new, there are a number of cool downloads, including wallpapers, animated GIF images, icons and Twitter skins, with a game and 3D video stunt listed as "coming soon."
Here's the synopsis of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, followed by the latest trailer:
Johnny (Cage), 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 (Ciarán 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.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance was written Scott M. Gimple, Seth Hoffman and David S. Goyer, from a story by Goyer. Johnny Whitworth, Idris Elba and Violante Placido also star. It opens opens Feb. 17, 2012.
