Out from the dark comes teasers and trailers for RIDDICK
I am sure there are a bunch of Riddick fans out there, he was the break out character in PITCH BLACK and THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK certainly has a solid fan base. Star of these films Vin Diesel worked his ass off to get this third film made, simply titled RIDDICK to continue the story.
There is a lot of buzz around the film, and you know what? It doesn’t look half bad, you know judging by the latest videos. The film was written by and directed by David Twohy, yep he’s returned so it will surely have a vibe that mixes the elements of the previous two films.
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.
