‘R.I.P.D.’ Poster Emphasizes Stars Over Fun

Universal Pictures’ R.I.P.D. is aiming for a July 19th release and has started their hype machine. While I’m actually hearing good things about the footage out of Cinemacon – and that we’ll be able to see a trailer this week, I’m sort of disappointed in this poster. It’s just so grey and bland. Jeff Bridges awesome mustache still stands out though.

Robert Schwentke directs the Dark Horse Comics adaptation in which a recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him. Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, Stephanie Szostak, Mary-Louise Parker, Marisa Miller, Mike O’Malley, James Hong, Robert Knepper and Tobias Segal star.

    “The R.I.P.D. Rest in Peace Department to Protect and Serve the Living”. All that text kind of makes the poster feel a bit overdone, while the image pretty much sucks. Also two too many plays on existing phrases.
