Nicolas Cage gets fired up in new “Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance” pics

Nicolas Cage obviously has a fire in his belly for the “Ghost Rider” franchise. The first film hit theaters way back in 2007, but his follow-up, “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,” finally has some photos to show off. And this time, it looks like Ghost Rider’s skull is starting to feel the burn.

New images featuring Cage, as well as his co-star Idris Elba, hit the Internet today via Empire Online, and they offer a few hints about what we can expect to see in the film.

Ghost Rider, first of all, looks like he’s been hitting the tanning salon since we last saw him. His white skull and metallic elements from his outfit all appear as though they’ve been overcooked. Perhaps that’s just part of the aging process when you ride around on fire all the time, though.

Directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor must have darker things in mind for Johnny Blaze, who travels to Eastern Europe to fight the devil in “Spirit of Vengeance.” Cage still cleans up nice when he’s not on fire, however. He appears to be delivering a very serious line (perhaps about his nice haircut) in one of the three photos that were released.

Elba, meanwhile, makes his debut as a warrior monk looking just as intense as you would expect him to. It’s unclear who the guy in the background is, but Elba dodges gunfire like pro.

Then there is Ghost Rider’s motorcycle, which may be even less street legal than it was under the direction of Mark Steven Johnson. All of that clean-burning hellfire now produces a lot more black smoke. When you’re tracking down the devil, reducing the size of your carbon footprint evidently isn’t a major priority in the Marvel Universe.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
