Sony has released a new poster for Neveldine/Taylor‘s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. It’s pretty much the standee but in poster form. As you can see, Ghost Rider (Nicolas Cage) swung his whip so hard that it knocked the title 90-degrees clockwise. And while having the main character rush towards you with his flaming bike is all well and good, nothing in this poster lets audiences know that they’re getting a much different (and hopefully much better) movie than what they got in 2007. Also, the final poster doesn’t hold a candle to these badass one-sheets.
Hit the jump to check out the poster. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance opens February 17th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance:
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.
