New R.I.P.D. Poster Online
Defending our world one soul at a time

07 May 2013  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Exclusive

submit to reddit

Given our standing affection for the Coen Brothers' True Grit, we're always happy to see Jeff Bridges in olde Western gear - and here he's in waistcoat and badge again on our exclusive new poster for R.I.P.D. Ryan Reynolds, however, must've forgotten his stetson somewhere along the way.

The film, as you probably know already, sees the newly-deceased Nick Walker (Reynolds) recruited to join the Rest In Peace Department, tasked with ensuring that the souls of the dead get to their proper resting place and don't cause trouble for the living. He's partnered with Bridges' gruff Roy Pulsipher and sent to work at once.

This poster does pose a few questions in our minds. Does that tagline seem a little reminiscent of Men In Black to anyone else? Who's that in the car? What's that four-armed person or persons on the building ledge? And what's the giant sky whirlpool doing up there?

 

Hopefully all will become clear when Robert Schwentke's film hits on August 30, also starring Kevin Bacon and Mary-Louise Parker.

Doesn't this whole film seem absurdly reminiscent of MiB? From the set up and the character types and interplay and well basically almost ABSOLUTELY everything. Someone said "it'll be great, like Men in Black but with ghosts and monsters instead of aliens" and then everyone took that incredibly literally... More

You are having a laugh
Jeff Bridges is not stinking up the cinema, he is still one of the best actors around these days. And as for your outrageous comment that True Grit was shit, you've never been farther from the truth. Awesome movie in which Jeff Bridges gave an immense performance. More

The poster for the film is a Photoshop catastrophe. I don't understand why they would spend millions to make the film in the first place to try and sell it with a poster that looks so rubbish!
