It’s hard to believe it’s been 2 months since we’ve seen anything from Vin Diesel and his labor of love project ‘Riddick’. Back then, we only saw a brief 30 second teaser, but now fans get to see a full trailer featuring Diesel as Riddick in all of his full glory!
Check it out below:
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 trailer really looks like it’s capable of having people forget about that second film in the trilogy and it really looks like it has gone back to the franchise’s roots as Diesel has promised. The visual effects are impressive especially on those creatures that everyone is fighting against and there is plenty of action!
The film looks like it won’t disappoint and if it does well at the box office, plans to go forward with another sequel may actually get fast-tracked.
So, what do you think of ‘Riddick’? Is it going to be the sequel that you’ve been waiting for since ‘Pitch Black’?
Directed by David Twohy, ‘Riddick’ stars Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk and Keri Hilson and will open in theaters on September 6th.
