The title character of Riddick is one of Vin Diesel's most iconic roles. The reflective silver eyes, goggles, and attitude helped to launch Diesel's career. It's clear he loves playing the character and pushed to get a sequel to Pitch Black made. While The Chronicles of Riddick was considered a flop by most, I enjoyed the film and the world it was trying to build. Thanks to the continued success of the Fast and Furious franchise, Diesel was able to get Riddick made.
Director David Twohy and actress Katee Sackhoff joined Diesel in promoting the movie during Comic-Con. Riddick looks like it pulls the best elements of the first two films and rolls them into one solid movie.
