A terrible sci fi flop that continued despite huge losses

With RIPD – Rest in Peace Department, Ryan Reynolds wanted to create an entertaining Men in Black clone alongside Jeff Bridges. The result was a debacle, that failed completely at the box office. On January 14th, VOX will air RIPD at 8:15 p.m., and like it or not, the sci-fi flop even got a sequel. With a big catch.

Check out the trailer for RIPD 2 here:

Sci-fi flop RIPD got a sequel without the original stars

In the first RIPD, Ryan Reynolds plays a deceased police officer assigned to maintain law and order in the afterlife. With a budget of between $130 million and $154 million, the sci-fi blockbuster starred Mojo, according to Box Office worldwide only $78 million.

The flop continued with RIPD 2: Rise of the Damned, which tells the story of Jeff Bridges’ Sheriff Roy Pulsipher. Reynolds and Bridges were on the sequel that in the US on November 15, 2022 as a direct-to-video release was released but no longer involved.

A Deadline for a German publication of RIPD 2 does not exist yet.
