Considering how the last one ended I don't see them starting from scratch.

Unless they do a (sigh) prequel.


I dunno  - start the film with the Necromongers throwing him off the ship. Same shit, different day type deal.

Or just have an adventure - no need to call it a sequel or prequel. Just another Riddick film.

Anyone see the animated film? Any good?


Dark fury?  yeah was pretty good but very short.

Vin speaks on Riddick 3! From an interview with Moviehole last week:

''Well, you remember when I had talked about Riddick, I talked about Riddick as being The Fellowship in the Tolkien series'', asks Diesel. ''So I was using Pitch Black as Hobbit as the independent story that introduces you to the world of Middle Earth, and then taking the Chronicles of Riddick and treating it as a trilogy that goes from the story that you saw to the underverse and ultimately to Furia in the third film''. David Twohy is currently writing the new film. ''It's hot, but to answer your question specifically about the scaled down aspect, yes. There is a scaled down portion of this that goes back to the Pitch Black style of telling the story''. ''So if you think of Pitch Black as an introduction to the world. If you think of Lord of the Rings and I'm just using it as a parallel. You're thinking of Lord of the Rings, there are three books, a trilogy. You would think of The Chronicles of Riddick as the first in that trilogy and there will be two more to follow.''

I'll definitely be interested if it does indeed happen. Great character with lots of potential. And I liked Chronicles, but you knew that.

That might just be the most absurd comparison I've ever heard.

Anyway... I watched Chronicles of Riddick again this week. Still love Riddick and still left with a tinge of dissatisfaction it wasn't made more of. I want another, please.

I absolutely loved the Chronicle of Riddick on the first viewing, and have watched it many times since -I never understood the hatred for it, often from friends who had not actually seen it!

on Blu-Ray its a stunning watch, and Pitch Black on Blu-Ray is also a treat to watch again

The Hollywood Reporter reveals the first story details of the film:

Though billed as a back-to-basics approach to the character popularized by Diesel, the script features the character -- the most wanted man in the galaxy -- left for dead on a barren alien planet, dealing with "trisons" (three-legged bisons) and "mud demons." He must then contend with two squads of bounty hunters, one of which ride rockets called jetcycles.

Sounds good apart from the three-legged Bison which doesn't sound very dangerous. Now, I'm no Bison expert but won't it have problems moving properly with just 3 legs?

Also will they be ignoring Chronicles? Because the ending was very cool.

Maybe it'll be a sequel to Pitch Black and a prequel to Chronicles... making Riddick still a wanted man, pursued by mercs and not leader of the Furions or whatever they were called.

You could be right there.He was being pursued by bounty hunters at the start of Chronicles was he not? Maybe the new film will cover this time frame.I wouldnt mind a direct sequel to Chronicles though as i thought it was alright.

I guess misunderstood could be used to describe this movie. I think ultimately though it doesn't succeed. The material, ideas & themes were almost enough for two films and unfortunetly they tried to squeeze it into one. For that the script is particularly weak. Another thing to keep in mind is the complete shift in attitude, mood, setting, and characters (I give the sequel major credit for this attempt) but, for the casual filmgoer this film is almost devoid of anything that made up the original PITCH BLACK and what that film brought to the table. Comparing the two films is bit like comparing apples to oranges. They went so far, it almost feels as if they don't belong within the same series. They expanded the Riddick universe sufficiently yet they probably didn't see the fan base diminishing as it has with chronicles and more to the point Vin Diesel's career not flourishing as once predicted and look upon. XXX is an indicator of passed Diesel Projects that showed promise and later deterated into an ICE CUBE vehicle urgh! You know your career is in the downward spin when they go to a rapper turned actor instead of you.

*NOTE: following was taken from a review I did for The Chronicles of Riddick 2 Disc Special Edition; I feel it sums up perfectly my views on this wonderful film

I have to admit to having a soft spot for 'cheesy' or 'below-par' sci-fi! And so, The Chronicles of Riddick, alongside such futuristic fares such as Judge Dredd, Demolition Man and Doom, is one of handful of sci fi films which I love watching - almost as a secret guilty pleasure!

I am a self confessed sci-fi fanatic. And my favourite sci-fi films include such classics as Blade Runner, 2001, Star Wars (original trilogy), Alien and Aliens to name a few. These films are considered 'serious' or 'vital' film, and rightly so. But every once in a while I like to lose myself in a silly story line, cring worthy dialogue and shoddy effects, and The Chronicles of Riddick is a perfect example of a below-par sci-fi masterpiece! There are many problems with David Twohy's film , mainly the acting namely Karl Urban and Thandie Newton who are guilty of crimes against acting!

Riddick '' I bow to no man''
Vakko (Karl Urban); ''he's not a man, he's the holy Half-dead who has seen the UnderVerse''(!!!)

Dame Vakko (Newton) ; ''its a rare offer, a visit inside Necropolis''
Riddick ''its been a long time since I smelled beautiful'' (what?!!!)

Its difficult not to chuckle at dialogue of this calibre! But that is part of the fun of watching TCOR!

One of the main draws is to do with the main character of Richard B. Riddick, played by Vin Diesel with devilish aplomb. He stole the show in the first film (Pitch Black). Another key draw is Riddick's world.

David Twohy made a big decision to move away from the first films setting, i.e horror, and create the sequel in a whole different premise. From a creature flick in the first to an action film in this, in turn creating a whole new mythos to the Riddick character. In the first film we think he is from earth, but in the sequel, we learn he is a Furyan. A warrior race from another world other than earth. The worlds depicted in the film are another exciting draw, from New Mecca to Crematoria; the planet equivalent of hell. The latter is an exciting place indeed! The sunlight so potent it can burn you to cinders in a second! This is where Riddick is held in a maximum security prison below ground. His escape from this hellish abode is one of the stand out scenes from the film. As I stated esrlier, it is the creation of these fantastical worlds which are a huge plus for this movie. And Crematoria can stand proudly alongside side iconic sci-fi worlds such as Tatooine, Vulcan and Pandora.

All in all, The Chronicles of Riddick is a very enjoyable, action, sci-fi romp!

I tried to watch this film once, man... POOR. I'm yet to be convinced that Mr. Diesel is a decent leading man / action hero. I do wanna check out FAST FIVE soon.

Vin Diesel thinks he is a viable action star, he thinks he can be as good as the Swarzennegers, the Stallones, the Van Damme's, the Willies', but he is just not that charming enough - or not that good looking! Ha ha! I find Dwayne Johnson has more appeal action and 'acting' wise than him! He's only good action film was Pitch Black and Chronicles. Babylon A.D was a poor film.

I even felt he was miscast for Saving Private Ryan! As soon as i saw him i went 'what?'!!

But like i said, he was excellent in Pitch Black. As well as Riddick. And i'm quite looking forward to the prospects of seeing him take the role of Richard B. Riddick again!

How dare you sir. I love that Vin is such a nerd, and is likely the driving force behind this movie....his passion project.

Personally, I thought it was a great movie. Not as good as Pitch Black, but an interesting film nonetheless. I never understood the hatred either - perhaps becuase it didn't live up to all the hype and success of it's predecessor.

It's a pic from the new film and a paraphrased quote from Conan The Barbarian as it echoes the beginning of that movie.
