Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges star in the first R.I.P.D. trailer
While watching the first trailer for R.I.P.D., I couldn’t help but get an overwhelming feeling like I’d seen it before. Except the first time I saw it, it starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones and was about a secret society that protected the earth from aliens. This time around, the film stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as the young, eager cop and old, grumpy veteran respectively and instead of fighting aliens, they protect the earth from dead souls. Other than that, the jokes feel familiar, as well as the plot. I even vaguely remember the first trailer for MIB playing out like this one, but I’m not sure. But even though it feels like a been there, done that type of trailer, it could still turn out to be pretty fun.
R.I.P.D. stars Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Mary Louise-Parker, Robert Knepper, Mike O’Malley, James Hong and Kevin Bacon. The Robert Schwentke directed film will blast into theaters on July 19th, 2013.
