It kind of came out of nowhere, but there is a new Riddick movie starring Vin Diesel scheduled to come out next year. Creatively titled “Riddick,” the new film will be the third movie to feature the “Pitch Black” character.
Though there’s no specific release date yet, the very first international poster for “Riddick” just arrived on the web, via ComingSoon.
The one sheet doesn’t offer much insight into the film, except that Vin Diesel is going to be in it as Riddick and he wears goggles a lot.

In the film, written and directed by Twohy, 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.
