R.I.P.D. starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges coming to 3D Blu-ray in October
Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that the supernatural action/adventure film R.I.P.D., from director Robert Schwentke and starring Jeff Bridges, Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker, Stephanie Szostak and James Hong, will be available in both 2D and 3D Blu-ray on October 29, 2013.
Here’s the synopsis for R.I.P.D: Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges), who has spent his career with legendary police force R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous souls disguised among the living as ordinary people, is none-to-happy to be assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his partner. However, upon uncovering a plot that could end life as we know it, the new duo have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork to restore the cosmic balance…or watch the tunnel to the afterlife spill angry souls onto Earth. Check out the trailer for R.I.P.D. below.
R.I.P.D. died a terrible death (pun intended) at the box office only grossing over $33 million with a $130 million budget. Ouch! Poor Ryan Reynolds has had a rough streak as of late, but I’m hoping against all hope he turns it around, because he is just so pretty to look at.
