‘R.I.P.D’ Trailer

“R.I.P.D,” or ‘Rest In Peace Department’ stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, though why does it feel as if this film is sneaking in under the radar?  The trailer plays like “Men In Black,” except with – I assume – a much, much smaller budget and various varieties of the undead, instead of aliens.
