Another new trailer for Riddick starring Vin Diesel finds its way out of the dark

Vin Diesel has got his contacts back in for another go 'round as RIDDICK and this new trailer showcases the return to the "darker" roots that were established in the first entry of the franchise, PITCH BLACK. The trailer is basically a scaled-back version of the red-band Comic Con version, but that doesn't diminish its coolness. If you're a fan of the series then this is likely a shoe-in for you (as it is for me) and a little more marketing doesn't hurt.

Rule the dark:

Here's the synopsis:

Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.

With a sparse, uneventful September, RIDDICK is pretty much the only pic I will likely catch in the theaters that month and I think that may be a similar case for many of us. Well, not including BATTLE OF THE YEAR, of course, for which I'm sure many of you are beyond stoked for, right? Right? Hey, where you goin'?

RIDDICK starts crackin' skulls on September 6, 2013.

Can't wait!

Riddick is an awesome character, very glad to see him back on the big screen! I think Universal should of bumped this up to around now, might of made some of that summer money... Strange release date IMO.

FINALLY

Pumped to see this - wasn't so much before, looked really "TV" and just a big rehash, but this trailer really got me into the character I remember and loved.

Over nine years and ...

still so stoked it's only a few weeks away now. Vin Diesel not will only rule the dark, but he did a damn good job of pretty much ruling the summer...

FUCK YEAH! Im so glad this was made! I hope its a success so we can see more to come! And they dropped the ball on a new video game to go along with this. They're arguably better than the movies.

While this looks like a hybrid of both of the 1st 2 flicks, I'll still be there to see Riddick kick some a$$. I mean, come on. Who actually goes to a movie like this & expects to get a world class script?
