New RIDDICK Movie Still Released Featuring Vin Diesel & Dave Bautista

The latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000's hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel. Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

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 stars Vin Diesel (Fast Five, xXx), Karl Urban (Star Trek, The Bourne Supremacy), Jordi Molla (Bad Boys II, Colombiana), Matt Nable (Killer Elite), Katee Sackhoff (TV's Battlestar Galactica), Bokeem Woodbine (upcoming Total Recall), Dave Bautista (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption), Conrad Pla (Immortals), Raoul Trujillo (Apocalypto), Nolan Funk (TV's Aliens in America) and Keri Hilson.

Riddick is rated 'R' for "strong violence, language and some sexual content/nudity. The film will be released by Universal Pictures in the US and Lionsgate internationally but no dates have been announced.
