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.
