Looks really bad. I like Ryan Reynolds and I think, like many of the people here, that he makes a better secondary character or major character alongside another major actor. But this is not what I had in mind. Looks like a much worse Men In Black. At least that had Tommy Lee Jones going for it.
it doesnt remind me of MIB at all, just cause of the whole death aspect, it has an interesting agenda, and i like Reynolds and Bridges, but I just dont have good expectations for this, it will definitely bust, maybe it will grow on me once it comes out and further down the road becomes watchable, but right now, it doesnt catch.
Ugh... I'm not even sure what I just saw there. I'll try and go down the list:
Men in Black
Hansel and Gretel
I'm sure I'm missing a few others. This almost feels like an inside-industry gag. And a bad one at that, regarding all the lame, flat jokes the trailer has to offer. I like Bridges and Mary-Louise Parker gives me a hard-on. Otherwise, this doesn't look promising at all.
Saw Hong on some Nickleodeon show while surfing cable...with the right comedy lines, he was so f*cking funny....

If that didn't look like a remake of MIB to you with Bridges and Reynolds then you are just an idiot.

I was so wrong. Not zombies, f*cking ghosts. Well, at least that's a LITTLE different...still, looks like MIB plus Ghostbusters plus The Frighteners.
All in all, not TOO terrible, but far too derivative to stand out, and the cast, well Bridges is a billion, and people don't know him nearly as well as Jones, for instance, and it has Reynolds, who is no longer the hottest male attraction in Hollywood. Hell, most men are at best ambivalent to him and his career.

Colonel Sanders and Alex J. Murphy bust some ghosts!
Wow, worse than I ever imagined. Something tells me "in development" most likely means "on the self".

It looks like it could be funny.
I mean: how much serious can you take a film containing ghosts, zombies, werewolfs, Hannah Montana, Adam Sandler, etc.?
It looks fun and entertaining and that's probably (!!!) the point. I'm just glad it isn't another Twilight movie..

Does somebody know why Jeff Bridges have slurred speech?
