Over the weekend I got to see some pretty badass footage from Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. It looks a hell of a lot better that the first film, and it looks like a freakin' insane Ghost Rider, it's going to be much darker, gritty, hardcore and action-packed. Here are a few low res images from from the film giving you your first look at Ghost Rider. This movie looks like it will be an adrenalin shot mixed with a gallons worth of speed. It seriously looks like a Ghost Rider version of the film Crank. The images below come from Empire Magazine. Check out the images and tell us what you think! Unfortunatley, they don't do any justice to what we saw at Comic-Con.
Here’s a detailed plot synopsis for the film:
Johnny Blaze found years after the events of the first film, self-exiled from the world. In this way, hopefully, not having contact with people, able to control the spirit of Vengeance. Blaze is approached by Moreau, a monaco quite unusual part of the monastic order of Michael, the warrior angel. The Monaco but needs the special talents of former stuntman to trace a woman named Nadya and her son Danny, who must be protected at all costs, as there is on his trail Roarke, who is none other than an old knowledge of our hero (you certainly understand who they are) and is interested in the guy for a particular reason.
The script strongly underlines the tormented soul of Johnny Blaze since its first appearance. For he is a man who just wants to hide and who sees in his power a curse, more muted than in films directed by Mark Steven Johnson. The script focuses on the background in this way also "historic" that covers Ghost Rider, explaining in more detail to the viewer and the protagonist that the spirit of Vengeance is appearing more than once, and with different identities over the centuries. An interesting part of this working thanks to the characterization, creating a strong bond between the characters of Nadya, Danny and Johnny, also not forgetting Moreau, well shaded from start to finish. Only link with the previous film is a little flashback on the Origin of Ghost Rider, the covenant between Blaze and Mephistopheles.
