R.I.P.D. Scares Up A Trailer
M.I.Beetlejuice?

Just yesterday, the poster for ghost cop buddy comedy R.I.P.D. arrived on the web. And with the various studios touting their wares at CinemaCon this week, there has been an influx of trailers. So, naturally, the Robert Schwentke film is joining the pack. Check out the promo below.

Ryan Reynolds stars as Nick Cruz Walker, a cop at the top of his game who is mercilessly gunned down by a perp while on a raid. His spirit is plucked from the Earth, and he’s offered a job by the R.I.P.D – the Rest In Peace Department.

Partnered with dead ‘tec Roy Powell (Jeff Bridges, clearly having a little fun), Nick is assigned to help police the spirits who refuse to accept their fate and remain among the living.

As we noted when the poster popped up, there’s a definite feel of Men In Black about this one, which is increased tenfold by the trailer. Reynolds and Bridges look to have solid chemistry, and there are some nice tweaks here (such as the officers’ earthbound forms appearing as an elderly Chinese guy (Reynolds) and a sexy blonde (Bridges). We're just hoping it's more MIB and less MIB II or MIB III...

R.I.P.D. is out in the US on July and haunts our cinemas on August 30.

RE: RE:
I think it looks like fun, MIB with a bit of Dead Like Me thrown in. It's based on a comic so I can forgive the similarities to the Smith/Jones franchise. More
