New Releases: September 6, 2013

riddick-poster-key-art1. Riddick (Universal, 3,107 Theaters, 119 Minutes, Rated R): In 2000, Pitch Black introduced Riddick into the world. The sci-fi became a cult favorite, was an unexpected hit at the box office and jump started Vin Diesel’s career.

The follow up, The Chronicles of Riddick, was a disappointment not only in quality but also in grosses, as it’s PG-13 rating turned off the people who like the violent precursor and failed to bring in the wider audience it was supposed to.

This one seems like a return to the qualities that made the first one so popular, as Riddick is stranded on a hostile land and is forced to fight off deadly beast that live on the planet and vicious mercenaries that came to the planet for the price on his head.
