New Riddick image lands online

A new look at the Mercs...

Fans of musclebound sci-fi action will be pleased to hear the latest from Vin Diesel’s Facebook page, upon which he has debuted a new image from upcoming sequel, Riddick.

The new image shows off the new breed of Mercs (that’s “mercenaries” for anyone not down with the lingo), a more lethal and violent set of bounty hunters charged with bringing in the notorious Riddick.

The new film will see the shade-sporting anti-hero left for dead on a barren planet, a planet inhabited by some of the deadliest alien predators our man has ever encountered.

Forced to set off a distress beacon to attract some form of rescue, Riddick soon alerts the aforementioned Mercs to his presence, as well as another ship captained by a man with a more personal reason for wanting to track him down…

Riddick is expected to arrive in cinemas at some point in 2013, with a specific release date yet to be confirmed. Vin Diesel seems to be happy to promote the film all by himself, so we’ll keep one eye on his Facebook page for more news as it develops…

Does the franchise warrant a second sequel? Share your thoughts, below.

      I believe the film is now simply called 'Riddick'...as mentioned in the article above...however, Wikipedia still has it listed as the original title. Guess we'll see which one ends up being right. I prefer 'Riddick' myself, but whatever..

      I agree with you @alexr the other title sounds like a bad Sun Newspaper pun.

      How is Dave Bautista now an 'awesome action actor'? He's only made one film and that was panned and didn't even have that much action in it!

      Ok, he's made three films, all of which are panned. 'Really good films'? Really??? And you wonder why people don't take you seriously, you idiot.

      It's a good suggestion but unfortunately I don't go for popcorn with psychotic bipolar child molesters who keep telling me how much they want to watch me die.
