Last night’s Scream Awards gave a sneak peek at some upcoming films and one of the movies on the list was Neveldine/Taylor’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. The movie has Nicolas Cage reprising his role as damned biker Johnny Blaze but Neveldine/Taylor is promising a complete 180 from the bland, forgettable first movie. So re-introductions are in order and this clip from last night’s Scream Awards (regrettably taped off a TV, but hopefully a higher-quality version will be along soon) has Ghost Rider making a grand entrance as he comes to save the day. Saving the day isn’t worthwhile if you blow the entrance. Ghost Rider is all about showmanship.
Hit the jump to check out the clip. The film also stars Idris Elba and Ciaran Hinds. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance opens February 17, 2012.

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.
