The first full-length trailer for the upcoming Riddick (the sequel to Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick, and The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury) plays like fan-candy to anyone who enjoys the franchise’s focus on Vin Diesel being monosyllabic, seeing things in the dark, and fighting lots of people and aliens against green-screen fantasias. If that’s not your thing, you may wish to keep moving.
The full trailer gives a basic rundown of the film’s plot—Riddick has been left for dead on a seemingly barren and scorched desert planet, where he must face off against a series of dangerous alien predators. Desperate, he activates a homing signal, bringing two ships full of bounty hunters ready to kill the anti-hero. The first ship carries “a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent,” while the second ship is led “by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal.” On top of this, a mega-storm is coming that will kill them all, a bunch of aliens are ready to murder both Riddick and the mercs, and Vin Diesel has to struggle to make facial expressions. Pretty wild stuff:
Excited? Riddick, which also stars Karl Urban and Katee Sackhoff, is set for a September 6 release date.
