After the double punch of new trailers for “Man of Steel” and “Star Trek Into Darkness” yesterday, today’s previews can’t quite compete. Nevertheless, both look like quirkily enjoyable tentpoles.
First up, Universal has finally released the first trailer for “R.I.P.D.” which looks exactly like we expected – “Men in Black” with a supernatural rather than a sci-fi focus. Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges and Mary Louise-Parker slip into the Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Rip Torn roles respectively.
Then there’s the final trailer for Disney’s mega-budget western epic “The Lone Ranger” starring Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp. This one showcases a bit more of the plot, not to mention some effects heavy shots.
