R.I.P.D. Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD will be available for purchase on October 29, 2013 with the early Digital HD available October 15, 2013. I finally got the time to watch this movie with the family and I really liked it. It had great special effects and a pretty good storyline that entertained kids and myself. Universal is packing some great features on the discs making them a great buy. I loved that Ryan Reynolds was the serious one in the film and Jeff Bridges was totally bonkers.
Universal City, California, September 3, 2013—Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski, True Grit) and Ryan Reynolds (Safe House, The Proposal) headline R.I.P.D., a supernatural action-adventure about two cops dispatched by the Rest In Peace Department (R.I.P.D.) to protect and serve the living from increasingly destructive spirits hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth. R.I.P.D. will be available to own on Blu-ray(TM) Combo Pack and DVD October 29, 2013.

Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges), who has spent his career with legendary police force R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous souls disguised among the living as ordinary people, is none-to-happy to be assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his partner. However, upon uncovering a plot that could end life as we know it, the new duo have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork to restore the cosmic balance…or watch the tunnel to the afterlife spill angry souls onto Earth.
