Watch: Vin Diesel is a Tough Man to Beat in New Trailer for 'Riddick'

"Don't know how many times I've been crossed off the list and left for dead." This is a big year for Vin Diesel. Not only does Fast & Furious 6 hit theaters next weekend, but the long awaited sci-fi sequel Riddick is finally coming this fall, and it looks pretty damn cool. Sometimes the visual effects look a little spotty, but then there are some really fantastically rendered creatures and spectacular action. Plus, Diesel just looks like a real bad ass in this trailer. It's almost like this movie is Predator, but with Riddick as the infamous hunter. As someone who's not really a Diesel fan, this movie definitely has my attention now. Watch below!

Here's the new trailer for David Twohy's Riddick, originally from Machinima:

And here's the latest official poster for Riddick, found via Collider:


Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick director David Twohy returns to write and direct Riddick. Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction. Universal is releasing Riddick everywhere on September 6th this fall.

    Felt like I just got punched in the face by a rock giant! That was fucking awesome. Got some Enemy Mine vibes from it...three plot points seemed to rear their heads...I'm loving it.
    • Linkfx
      It seems like the movie they wanted to make with Pitch Black but now with more vision and resources...and these creatures look amazing, although maybe not quite as iconic as the Hammerhead raptors from the original.
      • Xerxexx
        Agreed. Kinda wish the Hammerheads had a cameo.
        • Cody W
          Hey you never know, seems like something Twohy would do
          • Xerxexx
            Indeed. The Bioraptors were awesome.
        • TheLaughingMan
          So thought it was them at first in the trailer,how bad ass would it be if he lead them back to that planet where only he would have the advantage.
          • Xerxexx
            It would be epic.
  • N.
    Wow that actually got my attention I'm interested!
  • Alex Williams
    this looks like a shitty video game. booooo thumbs down
    • Xerxexx
      There's the door, feel free to leave. :p
        Fuck off fanboy. Alex is right, this does look shite!
        • Xerxexx
          Fuck off? Okay...*Shuts door behind him* Ohh...well hello. Thanks for sending in your mom. Next stop step-father."
  • Xerxexx
    That poster is sick.
  • Charlie Hard
    Man it looks awesome, has a really old school sci fi vibe to it similar to Aliens. It looks like a great old fashioned film. Glad to see Riddick back. This will be tons of fun to watch indeed.
    I hope this plays like two movies wrapped into one. First half, chase Riddick around while Riddick kills said pursuers. Second half, creature chases people around until Riddick kills it.
    • Linkfx
      you mean like Pitch Black?
      • DAVIDPD
  • Eurogibbon
    Looks like a retread of Pitch Black.
    • Xerxexx
      A good thing.
      • Vera
        Yes, very much so.
  • Brandon V. Fletcher
    Some of the outdoor scenes dont look to great :/
  • Fierce!
  • Jon Odishaw
    This is the type of movie worthy of Riddick and the original
  • David Wetty
    "Rule the Dark" is kinda weak, but the trailer was aces.
  • looks good, but similar in some ways to the original. I'll watch it.
  • How does it connect?
    Any idea how they are going to incorporate a connection to Chronicles of Riddick and the Necromongers? they left him as leader when it ended
    • Vera
      It will be in the beginning of the movie as Karl Urban is back for a small role too and no doubt he relinquishes his position to him or something along those lines.
      • AnotherDan
        Doubt it. Why would a Necromonger be shooting at him on the same planet the Mercs are trying to snatch him from?
        • Xerxexx
  • Linkfx
    looks pretty damn amazing to me.
  • Chris Groves
    I'm just excited that this movie even got's kind of surreal, I remember seeing Pitch Black in theaters when I was about eight years old...
  • me
  • Triton
    Great trailer! By the way, that poster needs to be on my wall right now!
  • Corey Ross
  • Brian Sleider
    Looks great, I know I will enjoy it, but honestly this looks like a Pitch Black remake more than a cool sequel. When we last saw Riddick he was a fucking king of a galaxy spanning army. Now back to rags on a forgotten world chased by bounty hunters and fighting weird aliens? Why not a further exploration of his furion roots?
    • Xerxexx
      Did you not see the Necromonger in the trailer?
      • Brian Sleider
        Briefly saw what I took to possibly be another furion. But passed it off as what I assume will be a rather short intro explaining how the king of the known galaxy is now a back to hiding from hunters on a god forsaken rock. I mean I will agree that is Riddicks natural state. Hiding from society. When I heard this was getting the green light I was hopeful for some better fleshing out of the character. Even The butcher Bay story would be cool, Something where we learn more about him and what makes Him what he is.
        • Xerxexx
          I doubt a Furyan would attack a fellow Furyan...unless he's been twisted by Necromongers..I believe Vaako (Urban) or another Necro may have sent an assassin to make sure Riddick dies.
          • Brian Sleider
            Good point. All I am saying is I wish they would do more. But maybe there isn't more. Maybe this is all Riddicks life can ever be. He really doesn't play well with others..
      • Just before the rock collapse? Might explain how Riddick's buried at the start of the trailer... Looks good, I'm in :-)
  • Jon Odishaw
    Like I said. It ain't me you gotta worry about.
  • bobby kotick
    "He can see in the dark, watch out for surprise attacks." Who wrote this shit?
    • Xerxexx
      David Twohy,,,it says so in the article.
  • I really want to see this, I just wish that they didn’t have to bow down to the people who only want a copy of the first film! Everyone gets on here bitching about remakes and what not, bantering on about how there’s no originality in hollywood, Until an original idea comes along and then they bitch and moan complaining that Chronicles wasn’t like the first one. WTF people.
  • Mark24
    very disappointed
    Jesus, this looks terrible.
    • Kim
      Too bad there's so many blind people here or they just have a very very bad taste in film.
      • Xerxexx
        It called "Difference of opinion,"
      • grimjob
        Dammit. And here I thought I had a great eye for cinema. Let's go Killer Klowns from Outer Space, to the curb with you. I vow never to have fun while watching a movie again!!
  • Ehsan Davodi
    FANTASTIC Im Not in mood of seeing Feast of Visuals for riddick movies for me this new installement need a solid script as first one , second one was childish Mystery of Riddic character (low speak) , lighting , surviving theme , violence and Gritty World around the Pitch Black in first one was only things that amazed me. I wish this for this too
  • Russell Shouse
    mmmmm Starbuck....
  • EnergonCube
    A movie destined to be so bad they had to give away the whole thing in the trailer.
  • P
  • RobotProphet
    uh oh. this looks like a remake of Pitch Black. Same situation except they're bounty hunters instead of passengers.
  • dawko
    This is a must watch that crap u give us...
  • JL
    Hey, Starbuck's getting in on the action.
  • Zak Coleman
  • grimjob
    Yes please!
