Despite being a sequel to one of the worst films to come out of the recent golden age of comic book films, Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance has a ton going for it. Be it the creative team of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank) being behind the camera, or Nicolas Cage, Cirian Hinds, and Idris Elba being in front of it, this film has all the makings of an impressive step up.
And at this the 2011 New York Comic-Con this weekend, those in attendance at the film’s panel got to see not only on some great, if not all that new, footage, but also a really great panel featuring the two aforementioned filmmakers.
First, we got a trailer which featured a few new shots, all of which looked great. Based off of the first one, you really could see just how much the Neveldine/Taylor aesthetic was ported over to this film, and for that, I couldn’t be more excited. They also showed the same stunt reel debuted this past summer at San Diego Comic-Con (see our coverage of that hereCrank 3 which has seemed to have stalled), but it was entertaining nonetheless.
