Trailer For ‘Ghost Rider’ Sequel Acts As If Original Was Successful

Remember way back in 2007 when Ghost Rider hit theaters and it was probably the worst comic book movie ever made? Worse than Catwoman and Elektra. Remember that Nicholas Cage starred in it and was just as terrible as he usually is? I was just starting to wash that terrible taste out of my mouth this summer with X-men: First Class. So, why is there a sequel coming out?! Not even a reboot that replaces the star like The Incredible Hulk, a full blown sequel that again stars Cage. WHY?! To anyone who goes to see this thinking it will be good: congratulations for continuing to ruin Hollywood.

The full title is Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. The trailer starts with a lot of title cards that act like the original was a classic. Are we supposed to be excited to see him “ride again”? Because the first ride was pretty awful. Am I wrong? Is anybody really psyched about this movie? I really hope not since the trailer includes the Ghost Rider regurgitating a bunch of molten bullets that some goon shot into his mouth. Then he pees fire. By the way, the special effects look terrible. No wonder this comic book movie is getting a February release date. Thank the movie gods that we have The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises later in the year to hopefully help us forget.
