Earlier this weekend, Vin Diesel announced to his Facebook fans that his new film Riddick would be making its way to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.  The star/producer premiered a Riddick Comic-Con poster on his page, and noted “It’s been over decade, since I’ve been to Comic-Con…”  It’s a lot more crowded, Mr. Diesel.  As for where this will fit into Comic-Con’s programming, I can’t imagine the panel will be anywhere but Hall H, and it’s possible that Universal Pictures will make  Riddick part of a larger presentation.  The studio also has the geek-friendly Kick-Ass 2 on the way (August 16th); additionally, if there’s some footage ready and the release date holds, Comic-Con wouldn’t be a bad place to debut the first look at the long-delayed fantasy action film, 47 Ronin, which is currently set for Christmas.

Hit the jump to check out the Comic-Con poster for Riddick.  The film also stars Katee SackhoffDavid BautistaJordi Mollà, Matt Nable, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Gerard Funk, and Karl UrbanRiddick opens September 6th.  The 2013 San Diego Comic-Con runs from July 18 – 21st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Riddick:

The latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000′s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004′s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

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.
