WATCH: R.I.P.D first TV spot is online!

May 21st, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

This is the first TV spot Training, for the supernatural action thriller R.I.P.D., which stars Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds. It’s an action-packed new trailer that offers up some fun new footage. The movie was directed by Robert Schwentke (Red), and it’s looks a mix between Hellboy, Men In Black and Ghostbusters!

“Nick is dead — at least, that’s how he remembers it — and teams up with another deceased detective, a gunslinger from the Old West (played by Jeff Bridges), to work for the elite task force, the Rest In Peace Department (hence the title), to track down the dead on Earth. (Due to overpopulation, some unsettled spirits haven’t gone where they’re supposed to, and are hiding out). Technically, R.I.P.D. officers (who are overseen by (Mary-Louise Parker) aren’t allowed to kill anyone living, and aren’t supposed to interact with anyone from their previous lives, but Nick is haunted by the fact that he was murdered by another cop (played by Kevin Bacon), and can’t let it go.”

The movie also stars James Hong, Mary-Louise Parker, Robert Knepper, and Kevin Bacon.

It opens in theaters on July 19th, 2013.
