When the first Ghost Rider film hit in 2007, it was met with a rather lukewarm reaction (being generous), so hope wasn’t really a big factor in the announcement of a sequel, until a rather impressive trailer hit recently. Now we have our first reactions to the whole film from the directing duo Neveldine/Taylor, which screened at Harry Knowles Butt-Numb-A-Thon earlier today….

Set several years after the first film finds Johnny Blaze in self-imposed exile from the world. Blaze has become a tormented soul, convinced that his powers are a curse. Former stuntman Blaze is then approached by Moreau, a member of the monastic order of Michael, the warrior angel. Moreau seeks a protector for a mother and son duo who are being pursued by a figure named Roarke – a fellow with a detailed knowledge of the Ghost Rider and his different identities over the centuries.
