For the life of us, we couldn’t tell you the plot of “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” after watching the trailer for the film. We’re not entirely sure that matters, though.
Apparently it has to do with Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage) being called on to battle the devil (Ciaran Hinds of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2”), who’s trying to take human form. If you get that from the teaser, you were paying closer attention than we were.
What we did notice, though, was a whole lot of action sequences, ranging from cool to ludicrous. But it looks rather fun too, and that’s not a bad thing to have in the depths of winter, when the movie is scheduled for release. Plus, it answers the long-pondered (or maybe not) question of how Ghost Rider goes to the bathroom.
“Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” also stars Idris Elba (“Thor,” “Luther”) and Italian actress Violante Placido (“The American”). It hits theaters on Feb. 17. Here’s the trailer:
