Did you ever wonder what it would be like if somebody crossed Ghostbusters with Men in Black?

No, of course not. However, from the looks of this R.I.P.D. trailer, that's exactly what you're going to get. The film is based on the graphic novel The Rest in Peace Department by Peter M. Lenkov and stars Jeff Bridges and Ryan well as Marisa Milleras Bridges' avatar. You could describe it as being just like Ghostbusters, complete with the threat of a full-on ghost apocalypse, only the guys catching the ghosts are dead. Or, alternatively, you could describe it as being just like Men in Black, only instead of aliens they catch ghosts...and the guys catching the ghosts are dead. Either way, R.I.P.D. is probably going to feel pretty familiar to you when it comes out this summer.

But hey, I'm not complaining. Any movie about shooting ghosts and/or aliens sounds like a good idea to me, and this one has The Dude in it. I'm sure it'll make a profit, and then they'll make at least two sequels.
