Today we got our hands on pictures of theater standees for a trio of upcoming movies that we thought might be of interest to you. The first features your favorite fiery Marvel superhero announcing Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. The second features Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum double-gunning it on behalf of 21 Jump Street. The last is the standee version of the new Men in Black 3 posters that recreate the faces of Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones with a couple dozen MIB logos.
Hit the jump to see the standee pictures, accompanied by more info on each film.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
Nicolas Cage returns as Ghost Rider, with Fergus Riordan, Ciaran Hinds, and Idris Elba co-starring. Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank) directed Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, due on February 17, 2012. Here is the official synopsis and trailer:
In the successor to the worldwide hit Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze – 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.
21 Jump Street
Though the March 16, 2012 release date is fast approaching, we haven’t seen much in the way of promotional material beyond the trailer and a single official image. As such, we hypothesize this could be an early look at the design of the first poster, whenever it is released. Ice Cube, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, and Rob Riggle star alongside Hill and Tatum in 21 Jump Street, the live-action directorial debut of Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs). Here is the official synopsis and trailer:
Schmidt and Jenko are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier – and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.
Men in Black 3
Last we heard, Men in Black 3 centers on Agent J (Will Smith) going back in time to save a young Agent K (Josh Brolin) and avert a world-ending disaster, but rewrites on a troubled production may have changed the details. Tommy Lee Jones, Jemaine Clement, Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Nicole Scherzinger, Rip Torn, and Johnny Knoxville also star in the May 25, 2012 release directed by series helmer Barry Sonnenfeld.
