The first trailer for Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges' new supernatural action thriller R.I.P.D. has been released, and it looks entertaining as hell! It's like Men in Black meets Hellboy. From what I see in the trailer, director Robert Schwentke (RED) did a hell of job pulling it off. It looks a lot better than what I was expecting it to be, and I couldn't be happier that that's the case!
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.
The movie also stars James Hong, Mary-Louise Parker, Robert Knepper, and Kevin Bacon. It opens in theaters in 3D on July 19th, 2013. Watch the trailer for yourself, and let us know if it got you excited for the movie!
