    You guys forget X1 & X2 were also Fox. Singer was the one who left and took his writers for those who didn't enjoy X3. Singer also made his deal with WB ahead of time fearing Rothman would talk him out of it.

    Was hoping for 125 - 130 minutes, but I can live with 114 as the length. It's still a nice chunk of film without being painfully long.

    And X2 and especially X1 were severly cut down in time and especially budget. And dont blame Singer for the travesty that was X3. If your manager under-payed you, gave you unfair deadlines, shot down your ideas whenever you made them AND farted about when offering you a new contract would you stay in that job? I wouldnt.

    About the run-time for GR, its good, not too long and not too short, and it looks like this movie will some character moments which is good and (LISTEN FOX!) SHOULD be a requirement for EVERY CB movie. GR has a run-time similar to the 1st Blade and Spiderman movies, which is a good sign as they were good movies.

    MSJ said it was over 2 hours :(

    Its still a good running time, just a bit shorter then the first spider-man movie, which is an awesom origin story.

    Well, at the time he said his current cut was over 2 hours. That was quite a while ago now though.

    So, can anyone confirm that the 114 minutes is the OFFICIAL running time of Ghost Rider?

    EXCELSIOR, Mirko, etc.?

    Well, I can confirm it, although my confirmations really don't make any sense. I also believe Hulk is actually a 210 minute movie, and it was cut down severely because of budget problems. However, I'm always wrong. :dry: Am I?

    I do know one thing, though. The film is indeed not under a half-hour long! Hope that helps.

    Didn't the European version get cut because of horrific violence, etc?

    Its a similar running time to X3 then....doesnt sound that great actually.
    From over 2 hours, to 1 hour 49 minutes, MSJ cut quite a bit then.

    Its already been proven that its a way better movie though.:)

    109 is a pretty decent amount of time, although I would've liked over 2 hours...it's still OK.

    That was ages ago. The studio could have messed with the movie since then

    Do you blame him? The full creative control he got from WB is an awfully tasty offer, considering the hell he must have gone through at Fox. It's a miracle he was able to eek out two great movies.

    And 109 is not a terrible runtime for a movie like Ghost Rider. For an "epic finale" like X3, it's bad.
