First Trailer, Poster and Images For ‘R.I.P.D.’ Starring Jeff Bridges And Ryan Reynolds



The first trailer for director Robert Schwentke’s supernatural buddy cop flick R.I.P.D. has been leaked online.  Ryan Reynolds stars as a murdered cop who joins a group of undead officers of justice in the “Rest In Peace Department”.  He and his veteran partner, Roy (Jeff Bridges),  battle an unearthly threat to the planet.

The vibe from the trailer is Men in Black meets a PG Hellboy.  Not a bad route to go.  Reynolds and Bridges excel at these types of characters and this should be an entertaining addition to the summer box office.

The supporting cast includes Kevin Bacon, Mary Louise-Parker, Stephanie Szostak, Marissa Miller, and James Hong.





Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side.  

Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) has spent his career with the legendary police force known as R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people.  His mission?  To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth. 

Once the wise-cracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork.  When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, two of R.I.P.D.’s finest must miraculously restore the cosmic balance…or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way.
