In the February 17 release, directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, Johnny – still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds).

Yeah, we’re sure he’ll rid himself of his curse, because Hollywood loves killing off any chance of more sequels. Also, the kid will totally die because a major studio would let that happen for sure. Obvious endings aside, Nic Cage spits bullets and pees fire. Had I neglected to mention that yet? Yeah, I’m watching this.
