The Furyan is back to give us a little backstory in between kicking a little butt with an ultra-badass motion comic which was recently unveiled to get you even more stoked than you already were for RIDDICK, which is slated for a September 6 2013 theatrical release. I'm seriously counting down the days for this one, folks!
Riddick, the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000’s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.
The infamous 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.
Also on tap for you is the first image in a line of new stills that will be revealed every Friday from now until RIDDICK's release as part of Universal's "Furyan Fridays" ad campaign. It's a real 'Beast'! Check it out below.
The film stars Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Mollà, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujill and Nolan Gerard Funk. RIDDICK hits theaters on September 6.
