TRAILER OF THE DAY! Ghost Rider Gets Cranked
Ghost Rider just about broke even, but Cage has been hounding Sony since 2007 to get a sequel made and, more importantly, bring a fresh new perspective behind the camera. In the end he got the dynamic duo of Nevaldine and Taylor, the guys who brought us the two Crank movies. As ridiculous as it may sound, I think there's actually incredible potential in that marriage. I mean, can you think of a better team to make a movie about a motorcycle riding anti-hero with a flaming skull for a head? Exactly.
That trailer already feels very different from its predecessor. A little darker, a little more adrenaline...plus 100% more Stringer Bell! Really, I think that last gag says it all. I actually think the five year gap between films could work in Cage's favor here, allowing them to the chance for a little bit of reinvention. This puppy hits theaters just in time for my birthday next February. Woo hoo!
