New 'Riddick' Trailer, Same Old 'Riddick' Badassery

It's been nine long years since Vin Diesel's deadly future guy Richard B. Riddick (Ricky to his friends) last kicked butt onscreen in "The Chronicles of Riddick." But now, with just a few short weeks left until his newest adventure hits the big screen, Diesel has released a hot new trailer for "Riddick."

And we have three words for you: Space dragon zombies.

Or, you know, something like that. Exactly what is menacing Riddick is a bit unclear, because unlike Diesel's anti-hero, we can't see in the dark, which is where most of the action takes place in this clip.

We do know, however, that Riddick finds himself at the mercy of a group of very touchy bounty hunters, including "Battlestar Galactica's" Katee Sackhoff. And then he does some patented Riddick performance art involving a scimitar, deftly choreographed ballet moves and a tone poem, all of which concludes with a dude getting whacked violently. In other words, exactly what you want out of your late summer blockbusters.

"Riddick" hits screens on September 6. This trailer? Hits your brain right now. Good luck.
