The first trailer and poster have been released for the upcoming movie that teams Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges. “R.I.P.D.” finds Reynolds as a newly-deceased cop who gets assigned to a different kind of police force in the afterlife. The Rest In Peace Department hunts down souls that have escaped and continue to walk the earth.
If you’ve seen “Men in Black,” the trailer might look a little familiar. While some of the action seems similar though, there are quite a few differences. Instead of aliens, Reynolds and his partner, a crazy cowboy (Bridges), are hunting down monsters. There’s also the added incentive that you can’t kill the undead, so it looks like the writers had fun coming up with dangerous situations to put the characters in.
“R.I.P.D.,” which is based on a graphic novel, also stars Mary-Louise Parker, Kevin Bacon and Robert Knepper. It will be in theaters July 19.
