New Riddick Trailer Arrives

The first full-length trailer has arrived for director David Twohy’s Riddick, which sees Vin Diesel reprise his role as the antihero for the first time since 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick and the animated Dark Fury. Along with the trailer comes a new poster and a handful of photos.

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.

Opening Sept. 6, Riddick also stars Katee Sackhoff, Karl Urban, Dave Bautista and Jordi Mella.

    As much as I enjoyed the previous Riddick films…

    “This ain’t nothing new” pretty much sums things up. It’s a shame we aren’t getting the follow up they originally planned for Chronicles of Riddick.

    yeah its weird this almost looks like a reboot of pitch black instead of what was planned for chronicles of riddick 2

    They are trying to pull a Highlander: completely disavow the second movie and restart with something closer to the storyline of the original film. It’s not a bad idea in this case. Chronicles of Riddick suffered from too many characters and too little story development. Keith Urban and Dame Judie Dench were wasted in that movie.

    This movie seems like a return to form. Simple plot, lots of fighting and some cool visual effects.
