'R.I.P.D.' Trailer: Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges Fight Afterlife Crime (Video)
The film from helmer Robert Schwentke follows the deceased lawmen as they track down dead people who've escaped judgment.
Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges take the buddy cop genre to the afterlife in the first trailer for R.I.P.D.
The film centers on Nick Walker (Reynolds), a police officer who is recruited into the R.I.P.D. (Rest in Peace Department) after being killed in the line of duty. He and his partner -- a wild west sort named Roy Pulsipher (Bridges) -- are tasked with tracking down members of the deceased who have evaded judgment. There’s a definite Men in Black vibe to the trailer, with zany weaponry and gross-out bad guys.
The Universal Pictures film is directed by Robert Schwentke and also stars Mary-Louise Parker and Kevin Bacon. It’s slated for a July 19 release.
