Say what you want about RIPD, but the film is going to make a killing come July at the box office (pun not intended.) The film about the Rest In Peace Department based on a graphic novel has been criticized for being a Men in Black knock off; however, we should not kid ourselves here and say that this looks a whole lot better than Barry Sonnenfeld’s trilogy. Jeff Bridges appears excellent in the Tommy Lee Jones-type veteran role while Ryan Reynolds looks sufficient. Here is a new poster to add to the hype. Not the absence of a date. It has long been expected it or Red 2 would bounce from the weekend they share two months from now as two action comedies might be a stretch for even summer box office standards.
RIPD hits theaters July 19.
