Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds star in Universal‘s R.I.P.D., the Robert Schwentke-directed 3D supernatural comedy about two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side. The movie is due out July 19 and was promoted yesterday at Universal’s CinemaCon presentation to exhibitors. It’s one of only two non-sequels on the studio’s summer slate — but we’re guessing a franchise is coming if this hits with fans. Think it has what it takes?
