Marvel confirms it has reclaimed the film rights to Ghost Rider, but studio President Kevin Feige appears in no hurry to move quickly on the Spirit of Vengeance or the recently returned Daredevil: “They all have potential, but we’re not going to say, ‘We got it back — make it!”
While acknowledging “You never say never,” Nicolas Cage contends he’s finished making Ghost Rider movies, saying, “I’ve done what I had to do with that part.”
Finally, some good news for Disney in a year that’s seen John Carter bring some ridiculously heavy clouds to the skies over the Magic Kingdom just for being a (relative) flop: Marvel’s The Avengers looks like it’s going to be a big hit, with pre-release tracking giving it an opening weekend of somewhere in the region of $125 million. Impressive? Sure. But also, just maybe a little low…?
Although it was expected to open at the top of the box office with a $30 million weekend haul, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance finished in third place, grossing an estimated $22 million — 52 percent less than the first film.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is expected to beat This Means War and The Secret World of Arrietty over the President’s Day weekend with an estimated haul of $30 million.
Behind-the-scenes footage from Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance shows how far directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor go to get the right shot.
The website for Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance includes character bios, animated gifs and, eventually, a video game!
The first official poster for Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is full of fire and brimstone.
Co-directors Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine will appear Oct. 15 at New York Comic Con for a Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance panel.
Brian Taylor, who’s directing Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance with his Crank collaborator Mark Neveldine, explains why they “re-engineered” the character’s origins for the 2012 sequel.
Tomorrow sees the release of Season Of The Witch, merely the latest in an increasingly-long line of random Nic Cage movies of surprisingly low quality (See also Ghost Rider, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, either of the National Treasure movies, and so on, and so on). Considering that we’ve seen proof that Cage is actually better than these movies, it’s worth asking: Why does he keep doing this to himself?
Don’t be surprised if you see the guardian of Asgard’s rainbow bridge show up in the follow-up to 2007’s Ghost Rider movie – but it doesn’t mean that the movie ties in with Marvel’s Avengers continuity… Just that actor Idris Elba has an active agent.
