I’ve been quietly tracking the upcoming Ryan Reynolds/Jeff Bridges movies, R.I.P.D. and the latest trailers featuring James Hong and Marisa Miller have me rolling.

A recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him.

Will this be this generations answer to Ghostbusters?

    People keep calling this Men in Black mixed with Dead Like Me, or something. And despite the actors involved I find it hard to argue with them.

    People = internet people, not real people.

    I saw this in front of Man of Steel and was amazed at how blatant a re-purposing of another film franchise (the above mentioned MIB) it was. Is this RIPD based on some other source material like a comic?

      Yep… It’s a Dark Horse book, though I haven’t read it myself.

    Yes, the only impression I get from this movie is that it is a complete rip-off of Men In Black.

    I don’t need every movie to be a completely original in concept or even execution. As long as it’s entertaining, who cares? Looks like fun, sounds like fun–hell, I’ll enjoy it even more if it makes hipsters and bleeding heart fictitious material connoisseurs throw a tantrum.
