Guess What? Jeff Bridges Was As "Underwhelmed" By R.I.P.D. As The Rest Of Us
With Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges cast as the two lead characters, R.I.P.D. really should have been one of the funnest movies of the summer. Unfortunately, it ended up being arguably the most disappointing, and a box office flop to boot. Hit the jump for Bridges' thoughts on how it turned out.
Costing $130 million to produce, R.I.P.D. would earn only $12.7 million when it debuted in North America back in July, while its current worldwide total of $68 million makes it clear that this is yet another 2013 movie to make a huge loss. In a recent interview with GQ, Jeff Bridges (who many of you will remember from Iron Man and hopefully his many, MANY other films) was asked to share his thoughts on both his experiences working on R.I.P.D. and how it ultimately turned out. "I had such a great time working on that movie," he said. "I remember what we were doing. I thought: This could be fun to see. And when I saw it, I was a little underwhelmed. For my mind, the studio made some, uh, choices that I wouldn't have made." As for how he feels about the disappointing box office performance, Bridges added: "It's kind of fun when the movie's coming out. It's like having a horse in the race. And they're lining up, and they're off! And you're rooting for your horse. And in this case, the jockey fell off the horse and you came in last. Ha ha ha. You know. That happens sometimes." What did you guys think of R.I.P.D.?

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.
