As an actor, Vin Diesel put himself on the Hollywood map with his turn as the character Riddick in the 2000 film Pitch Black. It was a terrific role for any actor, but one that fit Diesel like a glove. Diesel and Riddick are back when the film that simply takes the anti-hero’s moniker arrives on September 6 and Movie Fanatic has the flick’s first trailer.
We also got our hands on the film’s synopsis, giving us a deeper understanding of what to expect this fall when writer and director David Twohy's (The Fugitive) vision sees the light of day.
Riddick, the escaped convict who is being pursued by every bounty hunter in the galaxy, was left for dead on a sun soaked planet. Only, he is still alive and after battling aliens more vicious than any of the humans he has encountered. His only hope for turning back those creatures that seek his demise is to set off an emergency beacon that will alert those very people who he has been trying to avoid.
Diesel is having quite the year, Riddick lands in theaters merely months after he surely scores with Fast and Furious 6.
