Pitch Black came out in 2000, one year before The Fast and the Furious. But while the latter has since spawned five sequels, the former is only now preparing to put its second sequel in theaters. Still, better late than never, right?
Directed by David Twohy, Riddick once again stars Vin Diesel as the Furian warrior introduced in Pitch Black. Left for dead on a desolate planet, he soon finds himself fighting off both vicious alien predators and ruthless bounty hunters (played by the likes of Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Mollà, and Bokeem Woodbine). We’ve already gotten a taste of the film thanks to a domestic trailer and teaser, but the new international promo packs in some new footage.
There’s also a new Comic Con poster for the film, straight from the star. Check out both after the jump.
The new video is subtitled in French, but the dialogue is all in English.
Riddick premieres September 6. The poster, which Diesel posted on Facebook with the note “It’s been over decade, since I’ve been to Comic-Con…” is under this synopsis.
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.
