WATCH: First Full Trailer for ‘Riddick’
“Don’t know how many times I’ve been crossed off the list and left for dead. So this…this ain’t nothin’ new.”
The first full trailer for Riddick has hit, and this is more like it. If you’re like me, and you loved Pitch Black but were left indifferent to The Chronicles of Riddick, then buckle your seatbelts, because this looks much more like the sequel we should have gotten to writer/director David Twohy‘s fantastically fun sci-fi horror film. (If only it had a more inspired title…)
Chronicles gets points for ambition, but it felt way too bloated for its own good as a sequel to a claustrophobic, Alien-like creature feature. In the end, Vin Diesel‘s title character finds himself the new leader of an empire.
In this new film, Riddick is betrayed and left for dead on a sun-scorched planet teeming with alien predators. When he activates a distress call, he is descended upon by a pack of bounty hunters…and a figure from his past.
Check out the trailer below.
Riddick marks the third big-screen outing for Vin Diesel in the role. Diesel will be on the big screen next in Fast & Furious 6 on May 24.
Riddick opens September 6.
