The Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds starring supernatural action-comedy R.I.P.D. seemingly came out of now where just a few days ago with a new image and just like that, here’s the film’s first trailer! I’ve got to say, it’s pretty damn awesome and not at all what I was expecting. In the trailer Jeff Bridges immediately steals the show by delivering some solid one-liners and just generally being a badass. So far R.I.P.D. looks like a lot of fun. Watch it below!
Nick is dead — at least, that’s how he remembers it — and teams up with another deceased detective, a gunslinger from the Old West (played by Jeff Bridges), to work for the elite task force, the Rest In Peace Department (hence the title), to track down the dead on Earth. (Due to overpopulation, some unsettled spirits haven’t gone where they’re supposed to, and are hiding out). Technically, R.I.P.D. officers (who are overseen by Mary-Louise Parker) aren’t allowed to kill anyone living, and aren’t supposed to interact with anyone from their previous lives, but Nick is haunted by the fact that he was murdered by another cop (played by Kevin Bacon), and can’t let it go.
Directed by Peter Schwentke (RED), this flick stars the great looking cast of Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker, Stephanie Szostak, and Marisa Miller.

Soooo… basically, it’s Men in Black, the Afterlife Edition?
Love Jeff Bridges, but I’m not overly enthused at this point 😦
Lol yea I purposefully left out the comparison to MIB because I knew everyone else was going to make that connection. The MIB formula worked the first time around and was a lot of fun. I like the new twist on that, plus I’m a sucker for monsters so I totally feelin this right now!
I don’t think it looks great, nor bad. Just fun. But hesitant lol.
