Riddick, the third film in the Chronicles of Riddick has been long gestating, but thanks to Vin Diesel’s constant updates on his social media, we’ve been largely kept abreast of where the film is at. Now Machinima has released a first look at the forthcoming film with an epic new trailer, one that hopes to bring that hardcore feeling of the first film, Pitch Black.
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.
Directed by David Twohy, Riddick is released in US cinemas on 6 September 2013 from Universal. It hits Australian cinemas on 12 September from Roadshow.
