Universal has premiered a brand new Riddick trailer along with the film’s first poster and a selection of new pictures.
The film marks the newest chapter in the Riddick franchise, which began with Pitch Black in 200 and appears to be leaning more that direction than 2004’s Chronicles of Riddick. Once again David Twohy is at the helm with Vin Diesel in the title role.
I can’t remember how the last film ended, but I feel as if it ended with a more upbeat note than it sounds like this one begins, with Riddick stranded on a sun-scorched planet where he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators where his only way off is to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. Action ensues…
Riddick hits theaters on September 6.
I have included the trailer, poster and the remaining new pictures directly below.
