Looks like we're going back to 'Pitch Black' in a lot of ways

Apparently I've been slacking off a bit on the pictures from Riddick as Vin Diesel recently revealed only one new picture, but I go to his Facebook page and see there are actually several new images from the film I've yet to add to the gallery. Therefore, today you get six new ones to look at.

Riddick is set for a September 6 release and has already been rated R for strong violence, language and some sexual content/nudity. In the film, Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick we've seen previously in Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick and this time around it sounds as if we're going back to the style of story where it all began.

Riddick finds the escaped convict left for dead on a sun-scorched planet he soon 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.

Check out the additional five new pictures directly below and you can check out even more stills from the film right here.

    any word where this film fits in with the previous two pics?

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/ Brad Brevet

      My understanding is after the events of the previous two, but I can't say that with any measure of certainty.

        Yes, Brad is right. This movie takes place AFTER the events of Chronicles of Riddick, confirmed by the mere fact that Karl Urban is returning as Vaako. And Pitch Black took place 5 years before Chronicles of Riddick. So there you have it...

    Actually very interested in this. Pitch Black is a movie I like quite a bit.

    First pic is definitely Apocalypse Now inspired.

    That looks like Karl Urban in the fourth pic he's holding a blade at. He is wearing the Necromonger armor.

      yea that is Karl Urban in that picture

  • mark

    yea idk if im going to like this one or not Dave Batista is supposed to be in this
    i think he's a bad guy,
    I like Dave Batista dont get me wrong when he was in WWE
    but some wrestlers are not good actors

      Dave Batista may be a wrestler (and aspiring MMA fighter now) but he still displayed some top notch acting chops in the epic movie "The Man With The Iron Fists"....and no, i'm absolutely NOT being serious. lolz.

    For a very different Vin Diesel, check out Fine Me Guilty from a few years back. Definitely work a look and proof that he has real acting chops.
