A presentation from the highly-anticipated Riddick was recently shown to potential buyers and someone has posted it online. It’s a ten-minute video but the promo stuff starts in at about 5:30. Everything before is a brief introduction by Vin Diesel followed by quick trailer of all the previous Riddick work, including the video games, cut together. It looks like the title they’ve settled on (at least for now) is “Riddick” which is so much better than the previously-rumored title, “The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking”.
Writer-director David Twohy begins talking about the film at around 5:30 and he shows off some very cool concept art and talks about the film. There’s even a shot of the synopsis. But looking at the concept art, it looks like Twohy describes it: “visceral” and “R-rated”. Riddick fans should definitely check this out and even if you were left cold by The Chronicles of Riddick, this presentation may make you a believer again. Hit the jump to check out the presentation. The film is currently set to hit theaters in 2011.
Again, the presentation of the new Riddick starts at 5:30. And a big thank you to Collider reader Mario.
Here’s a possible synopsis:
In the upcoming third installment of the popular sci-fi franchise, Riddick get’s betrayed by the Necromonger army and is left for dead on a desolate planet. He has to fight for survival against alien predators and must deal with two squads of bounty hunters, who are coming after him to collect the bounty for the most wanted man in the galaxy.
