Columbia Pictures has released the first official trailer for directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. The sequel once again finds Nicolas Cage battling evil as stunt motorcyclist-turned-supernatural-vigilante Johnny Blaze, AKA Ghost Rider.
If watching Ghost Rider piss fire isn’t enough to get your interest, here’s the synopsis:
Johnny – 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 (Ciaran 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 also stars Christopher Lambert (Highlander), Johnny Whitworth (Limitless) and beautiful Italian actress/pop singer Violante Placido (The American). The film opens in 3-D on Feb. 17, 2012.
