Fast And Furious 6 is probably going to be Vin Diesel’s most successful film this year, but that’s not keeping him from staring in another one as well this year. Riddick is a sequel to The Chronicles of Riddick and I’m told that my film knowledge and education is sadly lacking in that I have not seen the first film, so I promise to remedy the situation.
I have to say the concept looks right down my alley, even if it looks like the execution is more about action than story.
Here’s the synopsis, followed by the TV Spot.
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.
