Nicolas Cage and Idris Elba ride some motorcycles in some photos from Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Jul. 25, 2011by: Niki Stephens

Question: If you put Idris Elba in your film, is it automatically good? It should be or else you are wasting Mr. Elba's time.

Will GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE be a waste of time? That I can't tell you for sure. Sort of hard to form an opinion of something that we haven't even seen footage from. The footage shown during the panel for the film sounds decent from what was described.

Maybe some photos will help? In that new issue of Empire magazine with big helmet DREDD on the cover, there are also pics from the GHOST RIDER sequel as well. There's three photos: one of Ghost Rider's flaming head, Nicolas Cage's serious face, and Idris Elba's intense stunt face.

Synopsis: The film sees Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider (Cage), hiding out in remote Eastern Europe and struggling to repress his curse. Blaze is recruited by a sect to take on the devil (Ciaran Hinds), who wants to take over his mortal sons body on the kids birthday.

Extra Tidbit: This is another film in which Johnny Whitworth magically appears. "I don't feel that I need to explain my art to you, Warren."

I seriously can't be the only one who loathes the same actors playing different characters in the Marvel universe.

Instead of buying a ticket for this, rather call your local drug dealer and get your hands on some acid. Place the acid into your mouth while downing a bottle of scotch, then proceed to slam your head onto a table as hard as you can. I guarantee it'll have the same effect as watching this movie.

I've seen both Crank films and Gamer... I know.

For a minute there, I thought these were 1:1 quality rather than photos of magazine paper. So I instantly though: OH MY GOD THEY'RE MAKING IT A GRINDHOUSE FLICK THAT'S BRILLIANT.

But no, that's not really the case at all is it. But how awesome would that be?! Now *that* I would go watch.

"Rap... metal... rap... metal...Whitney Houston."
"It's for my girlfriend, okay?"
"Suuure it is. You know, someone like you needs to diminish their criminal impulses, not magnify them. Maybe some jazz or some classical."
"Maybe you bite me."

The first movie was garbage. There is no way this one can be much worse...

I wasn't a big fan of the first "Ghost Rider", but I have faith in the sequel because of the new directors this time around and think because of that and how their "Crank" style will fit nicely into the Ghost Rider universe will be better and give the character and us fans justice.

Also having Idris Elba in it gives this film the benefit of a doubt.

Horrible picture. Looks like they just lit the action figure on fire. Idris Elba deserves better than this.

"Let's ride!"

If Mark Steven Johnson isn't directing this, then it's automatically better. I like both Crank films so I know this movie will be fun as hell (see what I did there?).

If this is anything like the first I'm afraid Idris Elbas sheer awesomeness won't be able to save it

Not exactly sold on this yet, but it looks to be an improvement over the first film (not that it would be hard to accomplish).

Cage films are all about laughing at his hair nowadays. Let's also see if there are any Cage-isms in this film. Like drinking m&ms...

Well, despite... everything. I at least like how grungy he looks on the bike compared to the clean CG ridiculousness. But it is what it is.

well...at least the cage hair looks normal-ish...but i will stay neutral bc with neveldine and taylor directing this means it will have 1% visual story telling and 99% forgettable trick photography.
