We can't say we weren't warned about certain components of the newly released Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance trailer, but seeing them come to fruition in the film's official trailer is... something to behold. As befitting of his underworld origins, there's not a whole lot that's sacred about Ghost Rider, which makes the weaponization of his hellfire-powered bodily functions surprisingly plausible and -- dare we suggest -- sort of endearing? There's still plenty of time to make up your mind before Spirit of Vengeance arrives in theaters on February 17, so check your workplace's policy on watching videos that contain Nicolas Cage as a CG skeleton biker peeing fire real quick and then watch the trailer after the jump.
From Spirit of Vengeance's official synopsis:
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.
