New Riddick poster shows Vin Diesel from the shadows!

July 1st, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


The Riddick posters just keep on coming. But they’ve all been pretty badass so it’s all good.

In the poster above, Richard B. Riddick is attentive and looks ready to pounce, brandishing a blade amidst an hostile alien wasteland. The tagline is like Riddick few words, but powerful:

 “Survival Is His Revenge.”

Riddick  is going to have a panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, complete with an appearance from Riddick himself, Vin Diesel. He  hasn’t been to Comic-Con in over a decade!

“Riddick, the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000’s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx).  Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless.  Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered.  The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.  

The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal.  With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.” 

The David Twohy directed film  also stars Karl Urban, Jordi Mollà, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujillo, and Nolan Gerard Funk.

The movie hits theaters on September 6th, 2013!
