Universal Pictures’ R.I.P.D. is aiming for a July 19th release and has started their hype machine. The official trailer just hit, and I’m sort of confused as to how I feel about it. I expected something that felt a little bit Men In Black, but I didn’t expect it to feel THIS much like it! I also don’t know how I feel about Jeff Bridges reprising the Rooster Cogburn accent from True Grit.
