Riddick Teaser Lands
You're not afraid of the dark, are you?

It feels as though, for the longest time, the only people pouring heart, soul and guts into promoting the latest adventure for Richard B Riddick were the man playing him (Vin Diesel) and the one directing it (David Twohy). Now, after months of nothing but Facebook updates, we get the first teaser for Riddick. Have a gander.

It’s a teaser in every sense of the word, with just a few flashes of footage. But what we see certainly keeps to the spirit of Riddick’s other appearances in Pitch Black and The Chronicles Of Riddick, with the gravelly anti-hero grabbing a reptilian creature in a fine Carrie impression, jumping around, throwing weapons and doing lots of glowy-eyed staring. “Don’t let ‘em take these chains off me,” he warns someone. Bet that they don't listen.

It’s impossible to judge from this tiny fragment, but we hope with all of our hearts that the final result is closer to Pitch Black than Chronicles, getting back to what made Riddick really work: being a tough nut and not having to waffle on about the Underverse or some such thing.

Riddick is scheduled to stomp on to US screens on September 6 across the pond. We’d expect it to hit here shortly after that.

Ding Ding!
Oh yeah! Most anticipated movie of the year, right there :) I loved both movies, and thought that next to the Firefly/Serenity Verse, Riddick's verse (Under or Over) was one of the most interesting in Sci-Fi for some time. Cannot wait :). More
