There’s a new teaser image released for the third installment in Vin Diesel’s popular sci fi franchise, Riddick, which will follow the exploits of the titular mercenary as he is abandoned and left for dead on a barren planet, which seems to be lifeless at first, but actually serves as the natural habitat for race of deadly predators.
In the movie, Vin Diesel’s Riddick has to contend with the predators, who naturally see him as easy prey, as well as the incoming band of mercenaries who are alerted to his presence and are dead set on collecting the bounty placed on his head. The new image shows Riddick huddled in a windswept cavern, holding what looks to be a skull fashioned into a weapon (perhaps it’s a skull of the as-of-yet-unseen predators?)
“You know I like to let you in on things, even before Hollywood knows…” says Diesel. “Haha… Last night I was invited in to the editing room, to see the first cut of the new Riddick… WOW!!! P.s. I was so affected/excited… I couldn’t sleep. GRRRR!!!” says Vin Diesel in a recent Facebook status update.
Riddick arrives in the UK in 2013, with the specific release date still unconfirmed.
