The trailer for R.I.P.D is finally here and it looks a riot. In case you haven't been following the production of this movie, it stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as deceased cops who work for the Rest in Peace Department, hunting down some scary looking ghoulish souls called 'Deados' who've escaped judgement.

But, there's a twist. Ryan's character Nick Walker is looking for the man who murdered him in a botched police operation. The trailer opens with Nick working for the real life police - he enters a warehouse looking for a criminal, though is quickly gunned down and sent to the R.I.P.D and told of his new role. There he meets Wild West lawman Roy Pulsipher (Bridges), his new partner who appears to channel his Oscar nominated role as Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. The souls begin to get out of control and gunfights and chaos ensue, with the partners trying to defend the world "one soul at a time."

Zach Galifianakis and Jodie Foster were originally considered for roles in the film, though the former dropped out due to scheduling reasons. Nevertheless, R.I.P.D certainly appears to be a nice little summer flick and RED director Robert Schwentke looks to have done a decent job of steering away from anything too Men In Black or Ghostbusters. 

The movie co-stars Kevin Bacon and Mary-Louise Parker and hits theaters on July 19, 2013.
