Vin Diesel stars in an extended red band Riddick trailer
I’ll admit that until now, I wasn’t interested at all in another round with Riddick. I thought PITCH BLACK was creative, but THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK rubbed me the wrong way and I kind of felt the series was dead. But this new extended red band trailer for RIDDICK is pretty good, if you can get past the cheesy special effects. But it has the suspense of PITCH BLACK with the production value of Chronicles, so hopefully we’ll be in for a good time this fall.
Directed by David Twohy, RIDDICK stars: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Nolan Gerard Funk, Dave Bautista, Bokeen Woodbine and Jordi Molla. It opens in theaters on September 6, 2013. The official RIDDICK synopsis: 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.
