'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' Trailer Sure Is Dumb! But Maybe That's OK?

Early word regarding Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is that it's a pretty terrible film, but you'd never know it from how cheerfully this new trailer for the film revels in being utterly braindead. "ROAD KILL," deadpans Nicolas Cage after using his giant, magic, fiery chain to flip a car. After all, have to do something to lighten the mood when you're fighting a tattoo-covered Christopher Lambert monk, hunting down a child antichrist, and puking hot coals on whoever the fuck shoots an uzi at you.

So yeah, the movie is definitely real stupid. BUT, is there still hope that it could follow directors Neveldine & Taylor's tradition of sort-of-awesome stupidity (à la Crank), or is this just really fucking stupid (à la their last black arts-themed comic adaptation, Jonah Hex)? Nicolas Cage's lax delivery of "Hell yes" can probably answer that for you better than I can:

Now, are we entirely sure this is an actual movie, and not just a video game? Because I'm almost certain the spin-around chain move Ghost Rider does just before the title must be the C-button special move that uses a little bit of your life.
