The horror-themed goods at Comic-Con just got a lot bigger and better with the confirmation of Friday, July 22's panel schedule, which includes some of our returning favorite and most anticipated new TV shows such as "The Walking Dead", "True Blood", "Bedlam" and "The River" along with films like Raven, Underworld 4, Fright Night, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Attack the Block.
And so it begins. One of our first news stories regarding the madness that is the San Diego Comic-Con 2011. With the big show rapidly approaching, you can expect the same insane amount of coverage that we give you every year, starting now with this interesting news bite regarding Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance.
So we've been wondering just who everyone's favorite motorcycle driving hot head will be tussling with when Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D roars into theatres, and finally an undead answer has come!
A couple of tidbits of information hit Twitter today regarding two projects we've been keeping our eyes on: Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's rip-roaring 3D sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Danish director Ole Bornedal's Dibbuk Box, which has a script by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White that was inspired by true events.
Personally we couldn't care less what Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is about. It has Nicolas Cage transforming into a biker with a flaming skull cruising around Romania. That alone ensures a trip to the theatre for us! But for the curious we have the early sales synopsis.
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance has just wrapped the Turkey portion of its shoot, and dozens of behind-the-scenes images have surfaced, including our first look at what could be Ghost Rider's Hellcycle! Dig it!
While Nicolas Cage was out and about promoting Season of the Witch, which open this weekend, of course the subject of his upcoming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance came up; and the star not only gives us some insight into the filming style of directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor but also promises a "completely new experience" compared to the original.
The combination of Nicolas Cage playing a spirit of vengeance with a flaming skull and directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor has us giddy. Oh, the spectacle this could turn into! Ready for your first glimpse of Cage on set? Of course you are!
Looking forward to Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance from the Crank duo of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor? I mean come on! Their frantic filming style in 3D plus Cage's over-acting, coupled with whatever Cage's scene-chewing hairstyle ends up being, can't friggin' miss, can it? I know we're there.
I'm now fully convinced that Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is going to be considerably better than its predecessor even if it ends up being a bad movie. The Crank guys having Ghost Rider fighting Satan in Transylvania with the help of an alcoholic warrior monk is guaranteed to entertain on some level. Add Idris Elba as that drunk monk, and the odds increase dramatically.
