Judge ‘RIPD’ for Yourself with Trailer Debut
I know it’s a cliché, but you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. In the case of movies, maybe you shouldn’t judge a movie by its trailer. Although we all judge books by the back covers, right?
I’ll let you judge it for yourself, but my initial response to the first RIPD trailer wasn’t very positive. Yes, it’s just a trailer, but it seems unnecessary and overdone. Plenty of reactions have likened the tone and premise to Men in Black which isn’t hard to see at all.
RIPD is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red) and stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as officers in the “Rest in Peace Department.” The RIPD is a group of dead police officers who investigate crimes. The film is based on the comic book Rest in Peace Department by Peter M. Lenkov. It’ll release July 19, 2013.
