You have to have hope, Riddick fans, that the latest journey into darkness with Vin Diesel and his cinematic alter ego will be a good one. Riddick has premiered its latest trailer and it is so clear, simply from the two-and-a-half minutes of the teaser, that the first film’s helmer is back with a vengeance. David Twohy wrote and directed Riddick, and the Pitch Black helmer knows this character better than anyone, save Mr. Diesel.
This latest Riddick trailer gives us more of a glimpse of the aliens that our protagonists are fighting against, and boy, do they look nasty. For lack of a better description, they look like alien zombies.
It’s been nine years since Diesel played the misunderstood anti-hero in The Chronicles of Riddick, and Movie Fanatic is quite excited for this one for several reasons. Pitch Black is as pure of a horror/sci-fi hybrid as exists and we frankly think it is an instant classic.
Also, the addition of Battlestar Galactica star Katee Sackhoff should add some serious bravado to the film. Oh, and yes, that’s the star of the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy David Bautista you see in the teaser.
The only thing is, we have to wait until September 6 to catch Riddick in theaters.
