For 18 months, we heard virtually nothing regarding the upcoming supernatural comic adaptation R.I.P.D. as it underwent extensive post-production effects. Now, with its summer release quickly creeping up, all sorts of material is starting to hit the internet.
Not sure I'm entirely digging Bridges' faux-drawl there, but the movie definitely looks like it strikes that MIB-style balance between humor and otherworldly action. In other words, it has the potential to be a definite sleeper hit. I like Ryan Reynolds, and he's just fallen short of the mark of being a bona fide moviestar up to this point in his career. Will R.I.P.D. put him over the edge into A-lister status? Looks like we'll find out July 19th when it his theaters.
