Columbia Pictures recently released this awesome official movie poster for Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance! Nicholas Cage is back, confronting his calling as Hell’s bounty hunter.
If you hadn’t seen the first film, a stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze (also played by Cage) gives up his soul to become a hellblazing vigilante, to fight against power hungry Blackheart, the son of the devil himself. I’m not quite sure the plot of this sequel correlates to any of the comic books, but it looks like its going to be intense!
The cast will include Nicolas Cage as well as Fergus Riordan, Ciaran Hinds, Violante Placido, Idris Elba, and Johnny Whitworth.
The film, which is being directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, follows Ghostrider has he hides out in Eastern Europe when a (very) secret church sect hires him to save a young boy from the devil himself.
The studio is also hosting a contest called, “Face of the Fan”. It is a poster contest that asks fans to create their own poster for the film. The winner will get a trip to the official premiere of the movie. You can vote for your favorite here.
The MPAA has rated this film PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence, some disturbing images, and language. By the way, did I mention that this movie is going to be released in 3-D?! Awesome right? Of course, if you tend to get motion sick during the viewing of some 3-D movies (like myself), they are also releasing it in 2-D.
You can look forward to both versions for the expected release on February 17, 2012.
