Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges take the buddy cop genre to the afterlife in the first trailer for R.I.P.D.
The film centers on Nick Walker (Reynolds), a police officer who is recruited into the R.I.P.D. (Rest in Peace Department) after being killed in the line of duty. He and his partner -- a wild west sort named Roy Pulsipher (Bridges) -- are tasked with tracking down members of the deceased who have evaded judgment. There’s a definite Men in Black vibe to the trailer, with zany weaponry and gross-out bad guys.
The Universal Pictures film is directed by Robert Schwentke and also stars Mary-Louise Parker and Kevin Bacon. It’s slated for a July 19 release.
