Vin Diesel’s Riddick has a release date


Vin Diesel’s “Riddick”, the second sequel to the groundbreaking science-fiction classic (not too recent to call it a classic, right?) “Pitch Black”, has a release date :

September 6, 2013.

Yes, still a ways off until we see the mercenary with the cool glasses fighting alongside “Battlestar Galactica” babe Katee Sackhoff (and in IMAX!), but a release date is better than no release date!

Here’s the synopsis of the David Twohy helmed picture :

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.
