Ghost RiderWas anyone expecting a different result?  The first comic book movie to debut this year has gone down in flames it’s opening weekend.  Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance opened up in third place with an estimated $22 million.

Even with higher ticket prices the movie debuted 52% lower than the first Ghost Rider’s $45.4 million opening in 2007.  The movie had a budget of $57 million, so there’s a good chance Sony will make it’s money back.

The demographics of the movie audience was 68% male and 48% under 25 and it received a C+ CinemaScore.  The movie currently has a 15% rating on Rottentomatoes.
