The first trailer for Universal Pictures’ R.I.P.D. from director Robert Schwentke‘s (Red) has finally hit the web. Describing a film like R.I.P.D. is pretty simple actually, it’s a lot like Men in Black, but instead of aliens, the dead is what is causing the trouble.
Ryan Reynolds stars as a recently dead FBI agent who is recruiter into the R.I.P.D. (the Rest In Peace Department) to round up the dead who refuse to stay dead. Guiding him will be a salty silver tongue lawman (Jeff Bridges).
The mini-series R.I.P.D.: City of the Damned is a prequel to the new movie R.I.P.D., which is currently set for release on July 19, 2013. The concept behind the story is that a select few who died are chosen to work for the “Rest In Peace Department.” The job is simple, chase down and kill any evil soul that’s managed to stay on earth longer than its supposed to have.
Roy Pulsipher dies and is asked to join the R.I.P.D. to find out why in the last century there hasn’t been any overflow of souls trying to hide on earth longer than they should. His partner is Crispin Mather, who from the looks of it, may have been a puritan and has signed on for another 100 years of service.
2013 will bring us another year of incredible movies and Universal has announced a couple of release date changes for their upcoming titles: Identity Thief, Jurassic Park 3D, About Time, 47 Ronin, Kick-Ass 2, R.I.P.D..
Of course with every date change comes the question of the state of the movie itself. So while some of these release date shifts may come as a shock, others are not so surprising.
Let’s start of chronologically. Seth Gordon‘s comedy Identity Thief starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy will be released on February 8th, 2013. The Jurassic Park 3D release will open in theaters on Aprtil 5th, 2013, while Richard Curtis‘ romantic time-travel feature, About Time, starring Rachel MacAdams, has been set for a May 10, 2013 release.
