Robert Schwentke’s R.I.P.D. with Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges opens in August. So far there hasn’t been much buzz around it, but I think that people are wary of the Ryan Reynolds factor (remember when he had heat before the Green Lantern?). This looks like Ghostbusters meets Men In Black – an interesting pair to copy – but that magic is not something that’s easy to replicate.Having said that – it has the Jeff Bridges in it.
Here’s an official 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.”
Anyway, I think this poster tells you all you need to know about the movie.
R.I.P.D opens UK cinemas from 30th August 2013.
