Just a short while ago, Riddick director David Twohy and stars Vin Diesel and Katie Sackhoff appeared at the San Diego Comic Con to promote the movie and premier this new, extended red band trailer.
Given what we see here and the synopsis below, it looks as if the film is veering more towards 2000’s Pitch Black, the first film in this franchise, than 2004’s rather bloated Chronicles Of Riddick.
Here’s the studio synopsis for the film –
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.
Riddick opens September 6.
