We’ve got a couple of release date announcements to attend to this evening.  First up, Universal Pictures has set a September 6, 2013 release date for the upcoming sequel Riddick.  Directed by David Twohy, the Chronicles of Riddick follow-up finds the titular character, played by Vin Diesel, left for dead on a deserted planet filled with predators.  In addition to the release date announcement, Universal has revealed that the sci-fi film will also be released in the IMAX format when it hits theaters.  Currently no other films are slated for that September date.

Additionally, the 2013 White House actioner not directed by Roland EmmerichAntoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen—is undergoing a slight release date shift.  FilmDistrict has moved its release up to March 22, 2013 from its previous April 5th date.  Gerard Butler stars as a disgraced Secret Service agent called back to duty when terrorists attack the White House.  The film now squares off against DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods.  Emmerich’s similarly-plotted film, White House Down, stars Channing Tatum and opens in June.
