Three new clips have been released from director Robert Schwentke’s R.I.P.D, and you can view all three below. The first clip see’s Ryan Reynolds as the recently deceased Nick Walker joining the R.I.P.D, a team of undead law enforcers who clear the scum of undead from the world. The second clip see’s Jeff Bridges as veteran agent Roy Pulsipher explaining to Walker about their “other” identities, how alive people actually see them. I am still uncomfortable with Pulsipher’s avatar being a jaw droppingly sexy Marisa Miller, but Walker’s old Chinese man is funny. The final clip see’s Pulsipher showing Walker how to get rid of the scum they are out to get.
The Dark Horse Comics adaptation is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red, Flightplan) and the cast includes Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, Stephanie Szostak, Mary-Louise Parker, Marisa Miller, Mike O’Malley, James Hong, Tobias Segal, and Robert Knepper.
R.I.P.D. arrives in UK cinemas 20th September 2013.
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 Pulsipher (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.
