A Cut Throat New Look At Vin Diesel As ‘Riddick’

Star Vin Diesel has shared yet another photo of himself as Riddick, the franchise face of Universal’s forthcoming trilogy conclusion in theaters September 6.

David Twohey reteams with Diesel in this R-rated sequel, along with Karl Urban, Nolan Funk, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk and Keri Hilson.

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.

    Sounds hardcore. Riddick is a cool character and Diesel always seemed to be a pretty nice guy. he deserves a win.

    very cool! i can’t wait to see an official pic (and not just the artist rendering that was released back before they started filming) of the creatures! i’m looking forward to this movie and i’m very grateful the director(?) and Vin, etc went to bat for us who wanted an R rated violent movie and not a watered down tween PG-13′er.

    i hope people remember that (if i’m not mistaken) they were thinking about making it PG-13. i’ll gladly give them my $$$ for a ticket as a way to say “THANK YOU!” for that.

    Is it just me or does this not sound like a sequel to the Chronicles of Riddick film? Granted, it’s probably easier and better to go with a plot style similar to the first film, but that just leaves me confused considering how the Chronicles film went.

    Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay is one of the coolest video games ever, btdubs.
