With a Tomato Meter aggregate rating of only 27%, the 2007 film Ghost Rider was a critical failure. But after earning $228 million on a $110 million budget, it was a box office success. And you know what that means? Yup. It's sequel time.
The Holy Grail of comic books is now even holier. A stellar copy of Action Comics #1 from 1938, once owned by Nic Cage, shattered auction records this evening in New York when the smoke cleared and a final bid of $2,161,000 was announced.
You might not be aware that Nic Cage is reprising his role as the flaming skulled Ghost Rider/Johnny Blaze comic book character despite the lackluster box office and critical panning of the original Ghost Rider film in 2007.
You all remember that fleeting moment in the '90s when Tim Burton was lined up to do for Superman what he did for Batman, right? Well, judging by these costume tests, we should feel lucky it fell apart.
