Despite his only notable films in the last decade being entries into the Fast and Furious series, Vin Diesel has amassed a following like few other celebrities. In celebration of crossing the 40,000,000 fan benchmark over on his Facebook page, the actor has released our first look at footage from his other major 2013 tentpole outside of Fast & Furious 6, Riddick.
David Twohy, who gave us the better-than-it-should-have-been thriller A Perfect Getaway returns after helming both Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick. Full of flashy imagery, this look works well as a teaser and hopefully Twohy sticks closer to the first film, rather than the overblown follow-up. Check it out below for the film also starring Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk and Keri Hilson.
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 on September 6th.
