CinemaCon continues to bring us tons of good stuff this week and next up is the first trailer for Universal’s upcoming 3D, supernatural comedy, R.I.P.D. Directed by Robert Schwentke, the movie is an adaptation of the Dark Horse comic series by the same name.
The movie stars Jeff Bridges as Roy Powell, a lawman from the old west and Ryan Reynolds as Nick Cruz, a modern day police officer who was killed on duty. These two are members of an after-life law enforcement agency dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side.
‘R.I.P.D.’ lands in cinemas this summer on July 19th. The movie also stars Kevin Bacon, Stephanie Szostak, Mary-Louise Parker, Robert Knepper and Mike O’Malley, with Marisa Miller and James Hong playing the parts of Bridges and Reynolds as they appear in the living world. I know it may sound a little confusing but watch the trailer provided courtesy of Machinima and it should make much more sense.
