Prepare to see loads of dead people on Blu-ray in October.

Universal Studios has announced the supernatural crime comedy 'R.I.P.D.' for Blu-ray on October 29.

'R.I.P.D. - 3D' will also be available on the same date.

Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Jeff 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 (Ryan 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.

The release will be a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack with 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Alternate Scenes: Nick & Hayes to Raid, Julia Jogging & Made to My Skull; Deleted Scene: Roy's Partner Shot Him; Gag Reel; and Transfering R.I.P.D: A "Making Of" that focuses on the adaption of the original R.I.P.D. comic and the stellar cast that came to inhabit the characters.

Exclusive to the Blu-ray will be: Two Alternate Openings; R.I.P.D. Motion Comics: Bringing the Avatars to Life; Nick's New Avatars: See the other Avatar contenders for Nick and Hayes (Kevin Bacon); Filming the Other Side: The cast and crew talk about Schwentke's unique filming technique; Walking Among Us: Deados & Avatars: Explore what a Deado is, what happens when they "pop" and the effects that went into creating these unique creatures; and Anatomy of a Shootout: The Production Designer and the VFX Supervisor provide an in-depth look at the cinematic shootout scene on the roof of the skyscraper.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray combo pack is $34.98 and $49.98 for the Blu-ray 3D combo pack.
