This year, Vin Diesel takes advantage of his recent career resurgence to return to the character that made him a star in the first place. Following on from The Chronicles of Riddick, we find Diesel’s glowing-eyed anti-hero back on familiar territory, smashing monsters on a planet plunged into darkness. He’s also up against a group of bounty hunters who are caught between turning Riddick in for a big payday and letting him loose so he can save their lives.
Co-starring Karl Urban and BSG‘s Katee Sackhoff, writer/director David Twohy has assembled a strong cast with serious science-fiction pedigree. And by the look of this trailer, he’s also gone back to basics and made a nuts-and-bolts horror thriller: something closer to the awesome Pitch Black than the bloated Chronicles.
Riddick hits UK cinemas on Wednesday 4th September
