The first teaser trailer for Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s “Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance” has been released and while it still stars Nicolas Cage, it’s quite different than the first “Ghost Rider” movie that was an abomination and a disgrace. Now I’m not saying this quasi sequel/reboot will be any better. But, God, anything is going to be better than the first film.

“Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” rides into theaters on February 17th, 2012.

Here’s the film synopsis:
Nicolas Cage returns as Johnny Blaze in Columbia Pictures’ and Hyde Park Entertainment’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. In the successor to the worldwide hit Ghost Rider, Johnny – still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy – and possibly rid himself of his curse forever. Directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Screenplay by Scott M. Gimple & Seth Hoffman and David S. Goyer. Story by David S. Goyer. Based on the Marvel Comic. Produced by Steven Paul, Ashok Amritraj, Michael De Luca, Avi Arad, and Ari Arad.
