The teaser trailer for Riddick is finally here. It’s short and sweet and does exactly what it’s meant to. Following on from Pitch Black (2000) and The Chronicles Of Riddick (2004).
Riddick stars Vin Diesel and Karl Urban. The IMDb has this 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.”
Pitch Black was a particular favorite of mine when it first came out, being a very tense sci-fi horror and having a sort of Alien vibe to it. On the other hand, I never saw The Chronicles Of Riddick, after it came out to mixed reviews and looked to have abandoned the tone of the previous movie.
I feel as if I should watch Pitch Black again though, and give Chronicles a chance, in preparation for Riddick.
Riddick is due for release on September 6th in the US but has no date set for the UK as of yet. You can watch the trailer below.
