Trailer Park: Ghost Riders, Silent Movies, and Quiet Beatles

Welcome to “Trailer Park,” our regular Friday feature where we collect the week’s new trailers all in one place and do a little “judging a book by its cover,” ranking them from worst to best and taking our best guess at what they may be hiding. This week, we’ve got an even dozen trailers for you, and most are for the kind of prestige pictures that the end of the summer movie season usually has us salivating for. Not to worry, though, fans of things that are awful: there’s also a new Ghost Rider. Check ‘em all out after the jump.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

The sequel that nobody asked for (except, presumably, Nic Cage’s accountant) is directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the mental cases responsible for the Crank movies, and they’re on hand to growl an intro to this astonishingly terrible-looking (even by Ghost Rider standards) trailer. Mindless action, bad Cage acting (we talked about this, sir), unconvincing CGI, and then, just when you think it can’t get any worse—yep, he pisses fire. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance comes out in February. It’ll probably be a giant hit.
