The first trailer for R.I.P.D. has arrived online, featuring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds as a pair of undead coppers looking to recover some renegade souls who’ve escaped the afterlife.
Reynolds plays a recently deceased cop who finds himself recruited into the Rest In Peace Department, a group of passed-on lawmen charged with making sure the dead stay that way.
He’s soon partnered up with Jeff Bridges’ grizzled old-timer, and together, the two set about cleaning up the streets and trying to track down the former’s killers.
Take a look, below:
It all looks pretty good fun, with Reynolds and Bridges seemingly channelling Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones’ MIB shtick, with the undead standing in for the aliens.
Adapted from Peter M. Lenkov’s comic-book, directed by Robert Schwentke and co-starring Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker and Robert Knepper, R.I.P.D. will open in the US on 19 July 2013, and on 30 August in the UK.
