From Sci Fi Wire:
Ghost Not Quite Ready Yet
Mark Steven Johnson, director of the upcoming Ghost Rider, told SCI FI Wire that he’s still working on the film’s visual effects and editing with only one month to go before its Feb. 14 release. “I literally came from the Sony mixing stage, but I wanted to give a good introduction to the fans,” Johnson said at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention in Los Angeles on Jan. 14.
Johnson appeared with one of the movie’s stars, Eva Mendes, to show nine minutes of new footage from the movie, based on the Marvel Comics superhero with a blazing skull and flaming motorcycle. An appreciative audience of about 200 whooped and applauded after seeing the footage.
“I’m still working on it,” Johnson said. “There’s still some rough stuff. There’s some old footage on the Internet with some early effects, and this is a huge step up.”
Still not ready? It releases in a month! I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have a good feeling about this one, if theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re constantly feeling the need to tweak it. The release date was already pushed back a month.
Ghost Rider opens February 16th (according to http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/ghostrider/
