I have high hopes for R.I.P.D. The Men in Black vibe from the trailer is good, but what I really want to see is the dynamic between stars Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds. For those unfamiliar with the flick, Reynolds and Bridges play deceased lawmen from different eras who are partnered up to bring down souls that refuse to go to the great beyond. I’ll be at Comic-Con when the movie screens in Atlanta, so it will be one of the occasions where I shell out cash for a flick, and with R.I.P.D., I think it could be worth the price of admission.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of R.I.P.D. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free. The film also stars Mary-Louise Parker, Kevin Bacon, Marisa Miller, and James Hong. R.I.P.D. opens in 3D on July 19th.
To enter for a chance to win 2 admit-one passes, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “R.I.P.D.”. The screening is in 3D and on Thursday, July 18th at 7:00PM at Regal Atlantic Station, so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Please note that a pass is not a ticket. To guarantee a seat, please arrive at the theater early since seating is first come, first serve.
Here’s the trailer:
And here’s the official synopsis for R.I.P.D.:
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side.
Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) has spent his career with the legendary police force known as R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people. His mission? To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth.
Once the wise-cracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork. When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, two of R.I.P.D.’s finest must miraculously restore the cosmic balance…or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way.
