Vin Diesel stars in an awesome new poster for Riddick

Rule the dark

Vin Diesel has revealed a new poster for Riddick on his official Facebook page, and very pleasing on the eye it is too.

The new poster is a murky red and black affair, with Diesel's titular badass glowering out of the gloom like a particularly well-muscled gargoyle.

The new poster is designed to mark the film's participation at Comic-Con, which runs as usual in San Diego between 18 - 21 July.

As for the film itself, it will pick up with Riddick abandoned on a hostile planet, where trouble takes the form of a race of predatory aliens and a posse of marauding mercenaries looking to cash in on the price on his head.

Directed by David Twohy and co-starring Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff and Dave Bautista, Riddick will open in the US and UK on 6 September 2013.
