First Official R.I.P.D. TV Spot Released - “Training”
Featuring snippets mostly seen in the teaser trailer, Universal Pictures has released the first TV spot for the Ryan Reynolds-starring adaptation of the Rest In Peace Department Dark Horse comic book.
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 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.
R.I.P.D. is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red) and produced by Neal H. Moritz (Fast & Furious series, I Am Legend), Mike Richardson (Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army) and Michael Fottrell (Fast & Furious series, Live Free or Die Hard).

R.I.P.D. Concept Art Reveals Unused Colossal Creature
Conceptual illustrator Alfonso De La Torre ("Green Lantern"), has posted three images of an unused creature for R.I.P.D.. The creature would've formed from many Deados combining to make one enormous beast. It was meant for the climax, but was canned.
The DVD Autopsy: R.I.P.D.
This was probably the worst release of summer. A dozen years in development, and a $130 million budget, led to only a few weeks in theaters and a miserable B.O. return. I carve into this disc to look for signs of death.
