Columbia Pictures has released a new badass trailer for the Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor directed “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.” If you were a fan of the last trailer where the Hell spawn pissed fire, then you’re gonna love this new ridiculous action packed trailer. So far the movie is looking ten times better than the emasculated first film, and while there’s no real indication that the sequel will actually be good, the trailer (and new poster) is telling me otherwise.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
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.

“Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” stars Nicolas Cage, Fergus Riordan, Ciaran Hinds, Violante Placido, Idris Elba and Johnny Whitworth, and will ride into theaters February 17th 2012!
