Lightning, Fire, Chaos & Guns Blazing on New Poster for 'R.I.P.D.'
The trailer for R.I.P.D. has come and gone, and while it feels wholly familiar with a vibe similar to Men in Black, and director Robert Schwentke's previously action comedy RED, it still looks like it could be some summer fun. Now a new poster has arrived throwing a heroic Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds into the midst of some serious chaos downtown. There's a lightning tornado, some four-armed monster on a building ledge and someone seemingly trapped in that flaming police car. Plus that tagline isn't too far off from "Protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe." We're still interested to see how this plays out.
Here's the new poster for Robert Schwentke's R.I.P.D. from Empire:
Robert Schwentke (RED) directs R.I.P.D., written by Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay (Clash of the Titans, Aeon Flux) and based on Peter M. Lenkov's graphic novel of the same name. Nick Walker (Ryan Reynolds) was gunned down in the line of duty at the height of his personal and professional life. Now he's traded 100 years of service to R.I.P.D. (Rest in Peace Department) in exchange for a shot at solving his own murder. Unfortunately, his search will take him to Hell and back with the grizzled Roy Pulsipher (Jeff Bridges) at his side. Kevin Bacon and Mary-Louise Parker also star in the Universal Pictures film arriving on July 19th.
