If you’re a fan of Vin Diesel and David Twohy’s Riddick character, I don’t see any reason whatsoever why you wouldn’t totally dig their latest collaboration, “Riddick”. It’s essentially “Pitch Black 2”, and while it appears to pay lip service to the events of “The Chronicles of Riddick”, the first clunky sequel, let’s face it, not thinking about that movie is probably for the best. At least, that’s how I’ll be approaching this film. Feel free to do what works for you.
Here’s a new, Red Band trailer for “Riddick”. Aside from a pretty bloody death and a few choice words, it didn’t really need the Red Band designation.
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.
Starring Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Mollà, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk, and Keri Hilson.
Definitely not afraid of the dark this September 6, 2013.
