Sony Pictures has provided The Continuum with two images from the Ghost Rider movie.

The movie, written and directed by Mark Steven Johnson, continues toward a July 14 release.

"Post-production is going great," Marvel Studios' Ari Arad told The Continuum on Thursday. "We're starting to get visual effects in."

The images show Nicolas Cage, who plays Johnny Blaze, and Sam Elliott, who plays Caretaker. This is Elliott's second Marvel film; he was General Ross in Hulk.

During a recent convention appearance, Johnson said that Ghost Rider is targeted as a PG-13 film, a rating he doesn't think will be a difficult obstacle.

"I think PG-13 is going further and further in a good way," he said. "I think you can get more in a PG-13. War of the Worlds was PG-13 and there's some pretty intense stuff in there, really intense, graphic stuff."

The WB has released 11 more images from "Exposed," the Thursday, Nov. 3 episode of Smallville.

The episode reunites Dukes of Hazzard stars John Schneider and Tom Wopat.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Clark (Tom Welling) and Jonathan (John Schneider) are thrilled when Jake Jennings (guest star Tom Wopat), Jonathan's oldest friend, rolls into the Kent farm looking for their support in his campaign for re-election to the senate. However, after a young girl named Melissa (guest star Sarah Mutch) turns up dead, it is revealed that she was a stripper and Jennings' mistress, which makes him the prime suspect. Searching for answers, Chloe (Allison Mack) convinces Lois (Erica Durance) to go undercover as a stripper, but things take a dangerous turn when Lois gets kidnapped by a diplomat's son (guest star Woody Jeffreys) who intends to sell her into slavery."

The episode was written by Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders and was directed by Brad May.
