Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for R.I.P.D..

The film, based on the Dark Horse mini series, stars Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker, Jeff Bridges, Robert Knepper, James Hong, and Mike O’Malley and is being directed by German film director Robert Schwentke.

Nick Walker (Reynolds), a recently slain cop killed in the line of duty, joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department. His partner, Roy Pulsipher (Bridges), is a veteran sheriff bent on bringing justice to those who have attempted to avoid final judgement by hiding out among unsuspecting people and cleverly disguised to avoid detection. When Walker and Pulsipher uncover a devious plot that could end life as we know it, the pair must attempt to restore balance in the midst of chaos before the tunnel to the afterlife begins sending angry souls the very wrong way.

I have a really big Men in Black and Ghostbusters feel about this whole thing, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. What do you think, box office success or flop? The film is set to arrive in theaters on July 19th. Watch the first released trailer below;
