I don’t mind admitting i’m a big fan of Riddick. I loved Pitch Black, I liked Dark Fury and I had a lot of fun with Chronicles of Riddick, so hell yeah, I’m looking forward to this one.
Early word on Riddick is it’s pretty good and that the plan is to get the franchise back on track if it performs well. Though I am mildly concerned at how much this looks like the first movie. Anyway… two new things today. Firstly, Imax have released the new poster (above) which our American friends can pick up on the day the movie is released – more info here – the second bit of Riddick fun is these two new clips below. Thanks to aintitcool for the info.
Get ready because its only over a week away…
“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!
