Watch Ryan Reynolds Die in the “R.I.P.D.” Trailer

While it may appear that someone put Rooster Cogburn, Ghostbusters and Men in Black into a blender, R.I.P.D. is so much more than what it seems. Based on Peter Lenkov’s Dark Horse Comics series of the same name, R.I.P.D. follows the recently deceased cop Nick Walker (Ryan Reynolds) as he is pressed into re-enlisting for active duty with the aptly named Rest in Peace Department, an undead police force that deals with otherworldly crimes happening in the land of the living.

The first trailer, appearing on Machinima, is finally here, and gives us a healthy helping of what we can expect from Robert Schwentke’s adaptation: Jeff Bridges’ sassy southern drawl as Roy Powell, Mary-Louise Parker as the world’s best job interviewer, and the kind of kick-the-door-in action that made us love the comic in the first place. Considering that we’ve yet to see Kevin Bacon’s character – well, there’s an awful lot to be excited about.

R.I.P.D. opens in theaters nationwide on July 19th. What do you think of the trailer? Let us know in the comments below.

    Movie looks awesome but I can’t wait for this whole 3D craze to die off.

    Funny and awesome. Can’t wait to see R.I.P.D. with my boyfriend.

    Looks like that old Williams/Piscopo flick DEAD HEAT.

    True Grit meets Men in Black. Could be fun; will probably wait for it to hit the dollar theater.
