About a month after we got the first full-length trailer for ‘Riddick’, the long-awaited sequel to ‘Pitch Black’ featuring Vin Diesel as the extremely dangerous Furyan antihero, we get a new international trailer with some new footage. Though we’ve had to wait nearly a decade to see writer/director David Twohy return to this universe, this outpour of new footage looks as if it’ll be well worth the wait.
You can check out the latest trailer below:
But that’s not all the ‘Riddick’ news to make headlines today. Apparently, Diesel and company are looking to have a presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The star revealed the news on his Facebook page along with the first poster for the upcoming film that will grace the hallowed halls of the San Diego Convention Center. You can check it out below along with the film’s synopsis:
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.
What do you think of the new trailer and poster? Will you be keeping an eye out for Riddick at this year’s Comic-Con? Let us know in the comment section.
‘Riddick’ starring Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Dave Bautista, Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Mollà, and Bokeem Woodbine hits theaters on September 6, 2013.
