Vin Diesel is hot again at the box office, thanks to a slew of back-to-back Fast & Furious flicks,andnow he's chosen to bring one of his most iconic characters back to the big screen for a third round of sci-fi action and mayhem. Check out the badass first trailer for Riddick!
Following 2000's Pitch Black and 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick, the new film is set to hit theaters and IMAX on September 6 and reunites Diesel with director David Twohy for a more pared-down film in which our anti-hero finds himself up against a group of bloodthirsty mercenaries and even more bloodthirsty alien predators. Activating an emergency beacon, he catches the attention of two passing ships – one carrying a new breed of mercenary, and the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.
Also co-produced by Diesel, the Riddick cast includes Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Jordi Molla and Matt Nable.
