“RIDDICK” returns in first trailer for third film
Vin Diesel’s night vision space criminal is back with director David Twohy in what looks tonally closer to fan favorite first, PITCH BLACK.
Seemingly leaving behind the expansive sci-fi of THE CHRONICLES OF…, RIDDICK situates the titular character on a lonely planet where he must maneuver his way through monsters and the mercenaries hunting him. He looks in top badass space criminal form, rattling chains and glowing eyes. Also, cool dudes Bokeem Woodbine and DREDD’s Karl Urban are involved and hopefully utilized as well as Twohy’s last venture, the vacation thriller A PERFECT GETAWAY, utilized solid character actors Steve Zahn and Timothy Olyphant. And by “utilize as well,” I mean I hope someone else nails a Nic Cage impression on the beach.
RIDDICK is out September 6. Two doses of Diesel this summer. Ready?
