While some studios have reconsidered their Comic-Con plans in recent years and toned things down, others are prepping for a major showcase. Today we’ve got news that Universal will be hitting San Diego with this fall’s Riddick (and presumably for Kick-Ass 2, as well), as a Vin Diesel confirmed his return to the event with the debut of a new poster.

In addition, a new international trailer has landed for David Twohy‘s third entry into his sci-fi series. While some of the green screen is still shaky, it does seem to include a great deal of B-movie fun. Check out both the poster and trailer 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.
