    Review: 'Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance' Is A Metal Album In Cinematic Form

    The Marvel Comics character of Ghost Rider has always been more than a little alternative. Considerably darker and more haunted that contemporaries like Spider-Man and the Hulk, the demonic creation of trio Roy Thomas, Gary Friedrich and Mike Ploog found himself starring in more horror-centric stori...

    Geeks Reject 'Ghost Rider 2'

    It probably seemed like a sure thing: grant a clamoring, genre-friendly, comic book-reading audience at Harry Knowles' 24-hour film festival/endurance test Butt-Numb-A-Thon, an early look at a heavily hyped superhero reboot. But while the likes of "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," ...

    NYCC: Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor Diss First Film, Say 'Ghost Rider' "Re-quel" Has Huge Body Count

    Directors Say They've Thought About Direct-To-DVD Character Spinoffs For The 'Crank' SeriesSony had a superhero franchise on their hands in “Ghost Rider.” Curiously, though first film that turned a solid profit, but no one particularly fell in love with it, leaving them in a position to experiment with a second film about Johnny Blaze. So it only makes sense that they would turn to Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the architects of the gonzo, hard R-rated “Crank” series to recapture the magic of a beloved Marvel Comics’ “superhero.” We sat down and talked with Mark and Brian at the New York Comic Con to talk about the approach to “Ghost Rider...

    First Look At 'Ghost Rider 2'; Another 'Crank' Movie In The Works With Or Without Jason Statham

    Bookending their Comic-Con presentation this weekend by a title that read “fucking your shit up in 3D February 2012,” the “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor certainly aren't mincing words about the visual blitzkrieg they're planning for the upcoming comic sequel. Holding on to moving motorcycles wearing only rollerblades and generally disregarding their personal safety all in the name of capturing action sequences in their distinct visual style, if anything, 'Ghost Rider' promises -- for better or worse -- to be unlike any comic movie we've ever seen. But as anyone who has seen their "Crank" movies...

    Comic-Con '11: 'Ghost Rider 2' Boasts It Will "Fuck Up Your Shit" Come February 2012

    'Spirit Of Vengeance' Co-Star Idris Elba Says He Would Love To Play 'Power Man' Character Luke CageBookended by a title card that read “fucking your shit up in 3D February 2012,” the "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" footage showcased co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's particularly physical style of filmmaking. Both filmmakers ran cameras simultaneously in certain shots, Taylor held on to moving motorcycles wearing only rollerblades as he filmed the action, and the two of them generally disregarded their personal safety as they shot some fairly epic action sequences. When asked whether they’ve ever been hurt, Neveldine knocked on...
