Ghost Rider

The movie racked in US$44.5 million during its opening weekend and tops the box-office.

And I was... err... not sure how much I contributed to the collection.. what's RM11 over US$44.5 million? :-{

The movie, inspired from Marvel comics, is about stunt cyclist Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage) who sells his sole to Mephistopheles in order to save his dying father. By doing so, Blaze is forced to leave the love of his life, Roxanne Simpson (Eva Mendes).

Blaze is later given a second chance when Mephistopheles offers Johnny Blaze an exchange. If Blaze becomes the fabled Ghost Rider, doing service and providing vengeance for Mephistopheles, he will be allowed the return of his soul.

With the ability to recover his lost love, Johnny Blaze quickly takes this option. However, Blaze gets more than he bargains for when he must match up to Blackheart (Wes Bentley), Mephistopheles' enemy and son. Mephistopheles is the devil, and his son is attempting to outcast him and create a hell worst than what already exists.


My favorite part is when the Ghost Rider was riding on his Hellcycle alongside Sam Elliot (another Ghost Rider) who's riding on his (I suppose) Hellhorse. Very nice computer graphic!
