The first trailer for the upcoming supernatural action adventure, R.I.P.D. has just been released. The film stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as members of the R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department) where the world’s best lawmen police the afterlife. Basically it’s Beetlejuice meets Men In Black, with a little Dead Like Me thrown in for good measure.
The trailer is below:
The movie may not be the most original or intelligent film coming out, but because of the leads it looks like it might actually be a lot of fun to watch. Jeff Bridges seems to be recreating his performance as Rooster Cogburn from True Grit, much like when he rolled a bit of The Dude into Kevin Flynn for Tron Legacy.
Kevin Bacon and Mary-Louise Parker also star and the film is directed by Robert Schwentke and we’ll see it released in 3D on July 19th.
