To be honest, I’d be surprised if R.I.P.D. became a big hit, as despite a summer release slot in the US on July 19th (it doesn’t get until September 20th) and the presence of Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, plus a fun sounding plot, it doesn’t seem like Universal is pushing it too hard.
However a new featurette has now popped up online, which does make the movie look like it might be pretty entertaining.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two undead cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect our world from an increasingly destructive array of creatures who refuse to move peacefully to the other side. R.I.P.D. is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red) and produced by Neal H. Moritz (the Fast and Furious series, I Am Legend), Michael Fottrell and Mike Richardson.’
