No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside. ... There are certain ways to play this game, and some people play it well." [Details]

Trailer Park: Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges in 'R.I.P.D.'

If "Ghostbusters" and "Men In Black" had a baby, it might look a little like the new comedy starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, "R.I.P.D."

As seen in the new trailer, the upcoming release follows a deceased pair of cops as they hunt down dead wrongdoers that are walking among the living to bring them to justice.

Ryan Reynolds' Nick Walker joins the R.I.P.D. - which stands for the "Rest In Peace Department" - after getting murdered on the job. As he teams up with his new partner, Roy (Bridges), he's tasked with going after ghoulish bad guys on top of searching for the person who sent him to the afterlife.

Directed by Robert Schwentke ("Red," "The Time Traveler's Wife"), "R.I.P.D." is set to open July 19. What do you think of the trailer?
