Vin Diesel cannot count how many times he's been crossed off the list and left for dead. Yet here he is, back again, in the latest installment (2000's "Pitch Black" and "2004's "The Chronicles of Riddick") of the franchise.
In the international trailer released Monday by Metropolitan Films, it's mercenaries versus a guy who can see in the dark versus aliens. And if the trailer is any indication, it's Advantage: Riddick.
Here is the film's official synopsis:
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.
"Riddick" is in American theaters Sept. 6, 2013. Here's the new trailer:
