Universal is not f’in around when it comes to re-educating the public about Riddick. It’s been nine years since The Chronicles of Riddick and, yes, I think a slight push needs to occur on the studio’s part to get people excited about Riddick again. Luckily, the studio has Vin Diesel helping out, using his Facebook page to release photos and posters.
The latest is an IMAX one-sheet, you can find it inside.
In the September 6th release, 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.
Riddick co-stars Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk and Keri Hilson.
