Ghost Rider 2 – tweets from #SDCC

Ghost Rider

Since the original announcement that Nelvadine and Taylor (Crank, Crank 2) were taking the reins on Ghost Rider 2, I’ve shyed away from other news. With the first film being so flat out terrible, I really didn’t see the point. However, I may have been a bit wrong, because the tweets coming out of San Diego Comic Con tonight seem pretty positive.

Total Film tweeted:

“You will see real bones breaking in Ghost Rider” promise the directors of Ghost Rider 2 #comiccon2011

and then followed it up with:

Ghost Rider 2 footage is white hot – grubby, handheld and absolutely mental. Amazing #comiccon2011

Meanwhile Shock Til You Drop said

Ghost Rider 2 teaser: Another has him vomiting fire in a man’s face. Another actually has him urinating fire.

then added that Nic Cage on the GR” panel said

Ghost Rider 2 panel: Cage, “The first film was designed for children, but this one is made to be scary. ”

Empire Magazine also covering the Q&A quote Idris Elba:

Idris Elba on his Ghost Rider character: “I play a French-speaking, wine-drinking, motorcycle-riding warrior monk. Yep.”

I mean, look, I know it’s SDCC and it’s hardly a neutral crowd, but doesn’t this sound like (gasp) it might actually be fun?. Nelvadine and Taylor are something of an acquired taste, but let’s face it, part one was so terrible, there isn’t that high a bench mark.

Not to mention that the plot is barking

As Johnny Blaze hides out in Eastern Europe, he is called upon to stop the devil, who is trying to take human form.

Dear Columbia, can the rest of the world have a trailer please?

Ghost Rider 2: Sprit of Vengeance is due for release in the UK on 22nd February.
