ghost rider spirit of vengeance
From "Blade" to "X-Men," CBR looks back at some of the notable franchises whose latter installments missed the mark.
Marvel confirms it has reclaimed the film rights to Ghost Rider, but studio President Kevin Feige appears in no hurry to move quickly on the Spirit of Vengeance or the recently returned Daredevil: "They all have potential, but we're not going to say, 'We got it back -- make it!"
2012 was a busy year for genre movies, with long-awaited movies that may have disappointed (John Carter, Prometheus), franchises making new bids of life (Men in Black 3, Total Recall) and the superhero movies that ruled them all (The Dark Knight Rises and, of course, The Avengers). But what was your favorite movie of the year? Tell all in our poll.
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's "Ghost Rider" sequel starring Nicolas Cage had a competitive third place finish opening weekend, bested by "Safe House" and "The Vow."
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is expected to beat This Means War and The Secret World of Arrietty over the President's Day weekend with an estimated haul of $30 million.
"Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" is the second film outing for Nic Cage as Johnny Blaze, and a much more successful one thanks to "Crank" directors Neveldine and Taylor.
