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.

Xerxexx on May 15, 2013


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.

Linkfx on May 15, 2013


Agreed. Kinda wish the Hammerheads had a cameo.

Xerxexx on May 15, 2013


Hey you never know, seems like something Twohy would do

Cody W on May 15, 2013


Indeed. The Bioraptors were awesome.

Xerxexx on May 15, 2013


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.

TheLaughingMan on May 15, 2013


It would be epic.

Xerxexx on May 16, 2013


Wow that actually got my attention I'm interested!

N. on May 15, 2013


this looks like a shitty video game. booooo thumbs down

Alex Williams on May 15, 2013


There's the door, feel free to leave. :p

Xerxexx on May 15, 2013


Fuck off fanboy. Alex is right, this does look shite! on May 15, 2013


Fuck off? Okay...*Shuts door behind him* Ohh...well hello. Thanks for sending in your mom. Next stop step-father."

Xerxexx on May 15, 2013


That poster is sick.

Xerxexx on May 15, 2013


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.

Charlie Hard on May 15, 2013


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.

DAVIDPD on May 15, 2013


you mean like Pitch Black?

Linkfx on May 15, 2013



DAVIDPD on May 15, 2013


Looks like a retread of Pitch Black.

Eurogibbon on May 15, 2013


A good thing.

Xerxexx on May 15, 2013


Yes, very much so.

Vera on May 15, 2013


Some of the outdoor scenes dont look to great :/

Brandon V. Fletcher on May 15, 2013



Nick Sears on May 15, 2013


This is the type of movie worthy of Riddick and the original

Jon Odishaw on May 15, 2013


looks good, but similar in some ways to the original. I'll watch it.

Carpola on May 15, 2013


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

How does it connect? on May 15, 2013


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.

Vera on May 15, 2013


Doubt it. Why would a Necromonger be shooting at him on the same planet the Mercs are trying to snatch him from?

AnotherDan on May 16, 2013



Xerxexx on May 16, 2013


looks pretty damn amazing to me.

Linkfx on May 15, 2013


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...

Chris Groves on May 15, 2013

Great trailer! By the way, that poster needs to be on my wall right now!

Corey Ross on May 15, 2013


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?

Brian Sleider on May 15, 2013


Did you not see the Necromonger in the trailer?

Xerxexx on May 15, 2013


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.

Brian Sleider on May 15, 2013


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.

Xerxexx on May 16, 2013


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..

Brian Sleider on May 16, 2013


Just before the rock collapse? Might explain how Riddick's buried at the start of the trailer... Looks good, I'm in 🙂

Michael Kingscott on May 16, 2013


Like I said. It ain't me you gotta worry about.

Jon Odishaw on May 15, 2013


"He can see in the dark, watch out for surprise attacks." Who wrote this shit?

bobby kotick on May 15, 2013


David Twohy,,,it says so in the article.

Xerxexx on May 15, 2013


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.

Jimmy Love on May 15, 2013


very disappointed

Mark24 on May 15, 2013


Jesus, this looks terrible. on May 15, 2013


Too bad there's so many blind people here or they just have a very very bad taste in film.

Kim on May 16, 2013


It called "Difference of opinion,"

Xerxexx on May 16, 2013


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!!

grimjob on May 17, 2013


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

Ehsan Davodi on May 16, 2013


mmmmm Starbuck....

Russell Shouse on May 16, 2013


A movie destined to be so bad they had to give away the whole thing in the trailer.

EnergonCube on May 16, 2013



P on May 16, 2013


uh oh. this looks like a remake of Pitch Black. Same situation except they're bounty hunters instead of passengers.

RobotProphet on May 16, 2013


This is a must watch that crap u give us...

dawko on May 16, 2013


Hey, Starbuck's getting in on the action.

JL on May 16, 2013



Zak Coleman on May 16, 2013
