I've only read one Ghost Rider comic book, but I do think Johnny Blaze is an interesting character. Naturally, the trailer made the movie look cool. Nicolas Cage must have the most expressive eyes in Hollywood, but I thought for sure they were brown -- they're blue in the movie. The movie's success already looks doubtful, though -- the release date is February 16, 2007. I've heard that February is the month for movies the studios don't have a lot of faith in. One recent example would be Daredevil. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
The Prestige, on the other hand, looks like a definite hit. You just can't go wrong with Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, and Michael Caine in a Christopher Nolan film. One preview of the movie even calls it Batman vs. Wolverine. Not to be confused with this month's The Illusionist (also a turn-of-the-century magician film), The Prestige is about rival magicians whose feud turns dangerous. The release date is October 20th. I can't wait!
