12 New Images From "RIDDICK", Starring Vin Diesel

Vin Diesel as a blind futuristic rebel has never really been my thing, but I have to admit that the newest images from RIDDICK look spectacular. In fact, they almost make me want to see it. Almost.

In case you're unfamiliar with the franchise, RIDDICK is the third installment of the Chronicles of Riddick sci-fi series that always gave me an Escape from New York/LA vibe. Here's a little more on the new movie:

Release date: September 6, 2013

Genre: Epic action-adventure

Cast: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Mollà, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Gerard Funk

Directed by: David Twohy

Written by: David Twohy

Based on Characters Created by: Jim & Ken Wheat

Produced by: Vin Diesel, Ted Field

Executive Producers: Samantha Vincent, Mike Drake, George Zakk

Riddick, the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000's hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). 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.
Put it this way, if I see this it would only be for Jordi Mollà (and Bokeem Woodbine, who I always felt was underrated). 

You've probably already started seeing the TV commercials for the movie, but if you've missed them feel free to watch an extended clip from the film in my previous post. Below are the images:

Wow, great stills! Feels like they are going back to the look of first film Pitch Black

Yep a very Pitch Black feel to this entry. Hopefully it'll be better than the horrible 2nd entry.
