New R.I.P.D. poster revealed

May 7th, 2013 by Marc Comments

The latest poster for R.I.P.D. does pose a few questions in our minds.

Does that tagline seem a little reminiscent to the first Men in Black movie to anyone else? Who’s that in the car? What’s that four-armed person or persons on the building ledge? And what’s that giant sky whirlpool thing 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.

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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
