R.I.P.D. Synopsis
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side.

Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) 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 (Reynolds) 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.

This weekend has a crowded release schedule with James Wan’s lauded latest The Conjuring facing off against DreamWorks snail-racing adventure Turbo, the star-stuffed Red 2, and the bonkers action-comedy R.I.P.D. Starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, this high concept venture follows an odd couple of dead cops charged with hunting down runaway souls, as is their duty in the Rest in Peace Department.

You Won't Believe How Identical R.I.P.D. And Men In Black Really Are You Won't Believe How Identical R.I.P.D. And Men In Black Really Are
If you've seen the trailers for the upcoming action-comedy R.I.P.D and thought to yourself, 'This seems familiar…' you're not alone. From its premise of a secret police force to its cocky rookie and curmudgeonly old-timer, jaunty score, cartoonish slapstick, and outlandish CGI beasties, R.I.P.D shares a lot in common with the 1997 hit Men in Black.

R.I.P.D. Trailer Shows Ryan Reynolds And Jeff Bridges Chasing Down Lost Souls R.I.P.D. Trailer Shows Ryan Reynolds And Jeff Bridges Chasing Down Lost Souls
My first thought after watching the trailer for Universal's R.I.P.D is that it looks like Men In Black collided with Dead Like Me. My second thought is that I've really missed Mary-Louise Parker since Weeds wrapped up. Directed by Robert Schwentke, R.I.P.D. stars Ryan Reynolds as a slain cop who is recruited to a team of undead police officers working for the "Rest In Peace Department."

April 2, 2010. That was the day that we first learned that Ryan Reynolds had been attached to star in the comic book adaptation R.I.P.D., and we've been waiting for it ever since. Production on the film took place all the way back in September of 2011, but for the longest time Universal has had the movie dated for release on June 28, 2013.

A few hours ago I published my recap of the Bourne Legacy footage shown today during the Universal Pictures presentation at CinemaCon, but that was far from the only movie that the studio had on display at the convention. Over the course of two hours they showed off footage from every single film that remains on their 2012 calendar and beyond, including outrageous comedies and Oscar-hopeful dramas.

It’s never too late to add cast members to your movie. R.I.P.D. has been filming in Boston for a couple weeks now with Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges taking the lead, but Prison Break’s Rob Knepper, says THR, has just signed on to play one of the baddies, which by this point in his career he should be pretty used to.

Robert Schwentke's R.I.P.D. is scheduled to go into production fairly soon, but it would seem that the film still has a few parts that they need to fill. Earlier today it was reported that supermodel Marisa Miller will play the human form of Jeff Bridges' character, an old west outlaw named Bo. And now two more names have been added to the cast.

Mary-Louise Parker Put In Charge Of R.I.P.D's Zombies Mary-Louise Parker Put In Charge Of R.I.P.D's Zombies
Mary-Louise Parker was brilliant on Weeds back when the show was still good instead of whatever it is now. But she was just sort of OK in R.E.D. which to me suggests that maybe she’s not cut out stardom on the bigger screen. She’ll keep at it though, in R.I.P.D.. What is it with her and movie title acronyms?

This has not been a great summer for Ryan Reynolds. While this was supposed to be the year that he broke out and became an A-list star, Green Lantern was panned by critics and audiences and The Change Up managed to only pull in $13.5 million in its opening weekend. I do have some good news for the actor, however: a very pretty young actress is now in talks to play his wife

If we've learned anything from the movie world in 2011, it's that Kevin Bacon is still quite awesome. Between Super and X-Men: First Class he has shown that he still has the skills that made him a star and also plays a pretty damn good villain. Hopefully he'll take what he learned from those films and apply it to his newest gig.

While this summer has been fairly mild when it comes to box office openings, most blockbusters only garnering between $50-60 million in their first weekend, the season did start out with a bang thanks to Fast Five. Raking in an impressive $86 million in its debut, the film was not only the biggest opener in the franchise, but with a $207 million domestic gross it is also the top earner overall.

Thanks to True Grit and Tron: Legacy, you couldn't drive more than a couple miles in a city without seeing Jeff Bridges' face on a billboard somewhere. A great selling point thanks to his Oscar win for his performance in Crazy Heart, the guy saturated the market to such a degree that it was surprising he only had two movies coming out.

Asked if the film would be his next project, Reynolds said that he was unsure, as they are "still trying to work it out with cast and crew."
