5 new clips for R.I.P.D. with Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds take you driving, shooting, and ankle-gazing

I was talking with fellow news editor Niki Stephens today about R.I.P.D. and our resounding thought seems to be that it looks awful, but in a good way. I don't think anyone is expecting the film to change the course of cinema as we know it, but it's got guilty pleasure smeared all over it. Think of it as the paranormal MIB with a white Will Smith (Reynolds) and a seasoned veteran actor in a cheeky role (Bridges) and it has the potential to be a whole lot of awful fun. The clips make this look every bit as fun and harmless as the film likely is and will probably help you decide if this is a theater watch, rental, or wait for cable movie.

Saddle up!:

Y'know, Jeff Bridges has gotten a lot of shit for using his weird, similar accents, but I'm happy to see him taking on both commercial and independent fare. He's one of the best seasoned actors working today and although not everything can come up as a win, I'm glad he's taking some risks and having some fun. That said, I think everyone involved here would've been better suited doing that HIGHLANDER remake together instead of this, but I do give props for R.I.P.D. being a new entry rather than another sequel/reboot. I'll definitely give it a day in court, just not sure if that day will be in a theater or from my couch.

R.I.P.D., directed by Robert Schwentke and starring Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Mary-Louise Parker, and Kevin Bacon (yep, you heard me right...no, I don't know where he is...) starts rounding up dead-o's on July 19, 2013.

That corky accent alone from Bridges has gotten me doing it at work every now and then. Should be a fun ride this upcoming weekend.

The script was great!

I managed to get my hands on a copy of the screenplay for RIPD last year and LOVED it. I was only planning on reading the first ten pages on the plane and read the whole thing. From what I can tell the version I read is fairly close to what's been advertised and it's getting a lot of a comparison to Men in Black which is a bit misleading. I would say it's closer in tone to the first Ghostbusters. It was really a fun, fast paced summer film with a well written "buddy" relationship between the

Movie looks funny and is one of the last few remaining films that I am really looking forward to. I'm not expecting anything amazing. Just a good time and a couple of laughs with some good action.

Reynolds and Bridges seem to be having a really good time in this film.
