After a true classic (Pitch Black), a mediocre space opera (Chronicles) and a ton of photos, Vin Diesel released the first teaser trailer for the third movie Riddick. It looks a lot like Pitch Black which created Riddick, one of the sci-fi’s most loved characters. The teaser is pretty damn cool… I can’t wait to see a full trailer.
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.
The movie also stars Karl Urban (Star Trek, Dredd, Lord of the Rings), Jordi Molla (Bad Boys II), Matt Nable (Killer Elite), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall), Dave Bautista (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption), Conrad Pla (Immortals), Raoul Trujillo (Apocalypto), Nolan Funk (Aliens in America), and Keri Hilson.
The awesomeness comes on September 6th, 2013.
