Opening on July 19th, R.I.P.D. stars Ryan Reynolds as a deceased policeman, teamed with Jeff Bridges’ 200 year old cowboy, tasked with protecting the living from the supernatural undead.  Based on Peter Lenkov’s Dark Horse comic series, the movie is directed by Robert Schwentke (RED) and also features Kevin Bacon and Mary Louise Parker.

Here is Universal Pictures official summary:

“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.”

The official trailer has already been released, but the studio has also released this video which is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this film.  Check it out below:
