Actor-turned-publicist Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) has taken to Facebook once again to continue his one-man marketing campaign for Riddick by releasing yet another still from the upcoming sci-fi sequel, this time featuring the eponymous anti-hero sitting on his
Iron Furyan Throne…
Riddick reteams Diesel with David Twohy, who once again returns to write and direct the third instalment in the franchise after Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick. Also featuring in the cast are Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Jordi Molla (Colombiana), Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall), Dave Bautista (The Man with the Iron Fists) and Nolan Gerard Funk (Glee). Here’s the official synopsis:
“The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.“
Riddick is set for release in North America on September 6th, with a UK date yet to be confirmed.
