New RIDDICK Still

Vin Diesel channels a little Game of Thrones in the latest new still for Riddick. Perhaps there's a little King Conan in there as well. Overall, its maybe the most impressive image yet from David Twohy's follow up to The Chronicles of Riddick.

A combination of Game of Thrones and Conan would actually be pretty epic. From an earlier interview with director David Twohy we know that the sequel to The Chronicles of Riddick will return the franchise to its Pitch Black roots. However, it's still nice to see continuity remains intact as the above image harkens to the end of 'Chronicles which saw Riddick assume the Necromonger throne.

Riddick hits U.S. theaters September 6th, 2013.

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.

I hope this is better than Chronicles of Riddick, which wasn't a bad film. It just could've been better in some aspects.

@Jollem & @Facade

LOL!

God, please get Vin Diesel as far away from ever playing Drax the Destroyer.

If it wasn't for his Pitch Black and Fast and Furious sequels we wouldn't see this guy acting so keep him away from Drax, I don't want to see a green Riddick I want to see Drax.

Yeah, and Urban has pretty much done Conan already, sorta: (although a bad movie)

I enjoyed him in Pitch Black and I thought the follow up movie was good. That being said I am excited to see this movie!

It's not bad taste, it's just enjoying it for what it is. Entertainment. I will admit that some movies just shouldn't exist, but I will tell you right now that the Riddick movies don't fit that description.

They rock.

CrimsonReign - 2/23/2013, 3:25 AM
I am hopeful regarding this film.
Vital - 2/23/2013, 3:42 AM
More people like Riddick based films than hate, so clearly we all have good taste PapaMidnight lol.

I always thought the chronicles of riddick is a try hard copycat of fantasy/sci fi series and this just proves it again. Vin diesel trys to hard to be this action film. I laugh at how he didnt want to be in fast and the the furious 2, to pursue xXx, man a part, and riddick but it all flopped. He had success in the pacifier and than dicided to go back to the Fast and the furious film.

Doesn't he know his only good for the fast and the furious and family films lol. Man just when I started respecting him on the fast movies, he goes back to this. Try hard to be in an action star.
