A short teaser for “Riddick,” the third film staring Vin Diesel as the night vision badass from title, debuted earlier this year, but now the very first trailer has premiered on YouTube.
The trailer clues us in on the story this time around. A group of bounty hunters have shown up to collect Riddick’s head, but he doesn’t like that. The tone seems closer to “Pitch Black,” especially when it comes to the host of monsters that show up in the trailer.
Read the official synopsis after the jump!
In the film, 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” opens in theaters on September 6.
