Okay, I think that got all the rhyming out of my system, maybe. Okay, yeah, I’m done. Though, I did leave out the addition of a healthy sprinkling of Ghostbusters, but that doesn’t rhyme, does it? Anyway, above is the trailer for R.I.P.D. starring Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, and Mary Louise Parker. If you’ve ever found yourself wanting more Men In Black, but this time with a sassy undead cowboy and his straight-laced, modern-day partner, well, this just might be the movie for you.
The movie looks like it will be a hoot. And by hoot I mean a wonderful popcorn movie to whittle away a 100+ degree summer afternoon. Based on a comic by the same name, R.I.P.D. is about a contemporary cop who gets killed in the line of duty and is then invited to join the post-mortem police force, the Rest In Peace Department. Their job is simple enough: keep the world of the living safe from all the nasty things that go bump in the night. What do you say, are you in?
