Ghost Rider Sequel’s Trailer Tackles Important Subject of Flaming Pee

You may have thought that the first Ghost Rider movie left no unanswered questions, but the trailer for the sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, will quickly prove you wrong. "What if you have to pee while you're on fire?" a little boy asks Nicolas Cage. (What, indeed!) And then, like a loaded bladder introduced in the first act that's destined to go off in the third, the trailer answers that question with an indelible final image: Cage, in full Ghost Rider regalia, arcing out a stream of flaming pee like Ripley torching the eggs at the end of Aliens. It actually seems like a semi-useful sort of power, the kind of weaponized bodily function a hero might have had in a Japanese NES game that never made it to our shores for obvious reasons. But we have it now, and we have it in the trailer for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. May the whole movie be that wackadoo.
