Our final new poster offering of the day is for Universal's new comic book-based feature 'R.I.P.D.'. Robert Schwentke's long awaited adaptation of Peter Lenkov's Dark Horse comic book is fast approaching and eyeing a 19 July release slot in the US and a way off 30 August release here in the UK. Still, the new one-sheet just released for the afterlife action flick is way better than the dull teaser art revealed a few months back. This at least has more comic book vibrancy and with some gun slinging from both its leads Ryan Reynolds ('Blade: Trinity') and Jeff Bridges ('TRON: Legacy') thrown in for good measure. Kevin Bacon ('Super'), Stephanie Szostak, Mary-Louise Parker ('Weeds'), Marisa Miller and James Hong ('Big Trouble in Little China') also star. Head below to check out the new 'R.I.P.D.' poster.
"Nick is dead -- at least, that's how he remembers it -- and teams up with another deceased detective, a gunslinger from the Old West (played by Jeff Bridges), to work for the elite task force, the Rest In Peace Department (hence the title), to track down the dead on Earth. (Due to overpopulation, some unsettled spirits haven't gone where they're supposed to, and are hiding out). Technically, R.I.P.D. officers (who are overseen by Mary-Louise Parker) aren't allowed to kill anyone living, and aren't supposed to interact with anyone from their previous lives, but Nick is haunted by the fact that he was murdered by another cop (played by Kevin Bacon), and can't let it go."
