Riddick: Behind the Scenes with Vin DieselAugust 31st, 2013
Action star Vin Diesel and director David Twohy take us behind the scenes on the upcoming action sci-fi flick, Riddick, to explain the premise of the movie. The Riddick films (Chronicles of Riddick, Pitch Black and Riddick) were planned as a trilogy from the beginning and this film begins with Riddick left for dead on an alien world. He needs to escape within 24 hours, but the bounty hunters after him have other ideas.
Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy is played by Vin Diesel must use all his fighting skills and all-around badassery to battle the bounty hunters and everything else on the planet that seems to be after him.
The film is written and directed by David Twohy who also wrote and directed the prior two Riddick films: Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick. 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.
Riddick hits theaters on September 6.
