First Colorful and Fun Trailer for Ryan Reynolds’ R.I.P.D. Rips Online


Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds in R.I.P.D. (2013) Movie Image

Ryan Reynolds dies and becomes an old Chinese guy played by James Hong in Robert Schwentke’s “R.I.P.D.”, a movie that (in case you couldn’t guessed) is based on a comic book. Jeff Bridges co-stars as his partner, who has been around a while, which might explain why when people see him, they see supermodel Marissa Miller. Hey, seniority has its privileges, ya know. See, they’re playing ghost cops. Or cop ghosts. One of those.

Check out the first trailer for “R.I.P.D.” It’s a heck of a lot better than I thought it would be, I have to admit. The fact that they’re just now rolling out the promos for the movie with only three months until it hits theaters had me worried for a while. Hopefully it’ll do well, if only to give Reynolds’ career a jump and lead to that “Deadpool” movie we’ve all been waiting for.

Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer has spent his career with the legendary police force known as R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people. His mission? To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth. Once the wise-cracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork. When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, two of R.I.P.D.’s finest must miraculously restore the cosmic balance…or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way.

“R.I.P.D.” also stars Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker, Robert Knepper, Mike O’Malley, Stephanie Szostak, Devin Ratray, and Larry Joe Campbell.

Putting things to rest this July 19, 2013.

    Reminds me of the First “Men In Black” movie but instead of aliens now there dead creatures trying to take over the earth. I really wish someone would just buy the rights to Wicked City and make a good live action movie of it. This new movie looks like it will be fun in all but I think Wicked City came up with that kind of idea first I think.

    • danmillion

      I thought exactly the same thing, just like “Men In Black” but with ghosts and not aliens….Yawn.

        Protecting the living from the scum of the undead!

  • Timothy Holm

    Jeff Bridges doing a caricatured version of his True Grit character? Don’t think that was the best idea he’s ever had…

  • Lexavi80

    It looks like Men in Black… but with dead people instead of aliens.

    • Nix

      That seems to be the consensus ha.

    ooooh the trailer is colorful! hahaha the standards of taste at this website need to be raised. why is everything met with fanboy hard ons?

    for reals the trailer is colorful and fun? wtf? is this written for 7 year old girls or what? where is all the asian movie news? o wait theres a hunger games story i just have to read….

    also reynolds suck.

    • Dedpool

      No it’s written in order to get people interested. once they’ve seen the trailers or read the articles then they’re opinion is their own. And everyone is pretty much entitled to one. And yes it was colorful and fun. Would you rather we say things like “Oh look at this MIB knock off!?” and make everyone judge something before they see it. You may not like it but others may.
      As for the Asian news, ther’s been a slew of it over the last two weeks, between trailers and reviews.

      • X_p

        what definition for slew are you using exactly? cus what i see on the website when i scroll “slew” is not what comes to mind. or do you have a diff definition for asian? idk where were miscommunicating here. idk why youre getting your fanboy panties in a bunch tho for real… all im saying is theres nothing “beyond” about this site anymore. its pretty much just hollywood trash getting covered every day its hardly worth coming over to read anymore.

    Mary Louise-Parker as Rip Torn
    Jeff Bridges as Tommy Lee Jones
    Ryan Reynolds as Will Smith

      Also, can I just say that as derivative as this looks, i STILL prefer ripoffs to reboots or prequels.

      Anything other than sitting through a Spiderman, Batman, Superman origin story AGAIN.

  • Jackie Jormpjomp

    Men in Black Meets Ghostbusters or a big budget version of the cult to series G vs E. this looks like a crazy amount of fun.
