After a short-lived cinema debut, Universal Studios' film R.I.P.D. will be available to own on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on 29 October. The film will also be available early on digital HD on 15 October, two weeks before it's available on store shelves from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
The digital HD version uses the UltraViolet digital locker, so consumers can purchase or rent a digital copy of the file, store it in the cloud, then watch anytime on iPad, iPhone, Android, smart TVs, connected Blu-ray players and game consoles.
Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski, True Grit) and Ryan Reynolds (Safe House, The Proposal) headline the film, 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.
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.
