Tractor Tire Award of the Week - Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Have you ever watched a trailer and had that one scene, that one shot that made you go "Wow, that was cool!"? Or maybe there was something you saw that stuck with you, something that for some reason was in the back of your head and despite how insignificant it was you were waiting for it to show up in the final cut of the film. But when you watched the movie that scene was nowhere to be found or has been altered in a significant way. Well, that is what the Tractor Tire Award of the Week is all about. We try to track down those scenes that didn't make it into the final version of the film and make sense of them. Where in the film was it supposed to be? Why might it have been cut? Why has it been changed? We may not always have the answers for you but at least you will have your piece of mind and know that you aren't crazy. So, this weeks award goes to Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance!

Cut Scene #1
Your guess is as good as mine...

I haven't got a clue. At no point in the film does anyone even consider going to a church let alone actually seeing one. That is clearly a church though. Complete with an unknown little girl looking back at some...thing sitting behind her. Nothing in the entire movie resembles whatever that person or thing in those robes appears to be. It looks as though it is growing...maybe? My wildest guess is that it was another creature unleashed by the devil...or perhaps it was the devil himself transforming? I am actually intrigued by this because it looks completely disconnected from anything that happens in the movie. Perhaps this was an alternate opening sequence that was cut which would make sense given that the final version of the film opens so abruptly. Regardless, I am unsure if this would have made any sort of difference with how the finished film turned out since I have no idea what it is, where it was supposed to be and when it was supposed to take place. Here's hoping for some deleted scenes on the blu-ray.
