Universal Pictures has finally given Vin Diesel's Riddick film a release date, and that date is September 6th, 2013! You will be able to watch it in either IMAX or conventional theaters.
The movie was written and directed by David Twohy, and from everything I've seen and heard of the movie so far, I have a feeling it will live up to the fans' expectations. As a little bonus with the announcement, Diesel posted the photo above of himself and the director on his official Facebook page. Hopefully we get a trailer in the near future!
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.
