Universal Pictures has released a new trailer, images, and a debut poster for writer/director David Twohy’s Riddick. The Chronicles of Riddick follow-up finds the titular character, played by Vin Diesel, left for dead on a deserted planet filled with predators both alien and human, as bounty hunters once again are out for Riddick’s head. Clocking in at two and a half minutes long, this trailer shows off much more footage than the first teaser, but there’s not much revealed by way of plot. In fact, it really looks as though one could comfortably watch Riddick without having seen the first two films in the series and be completely onboard. With Karl Urban returning, though, one imagines there’s at least a small throughline that connects Riddick with Chronicles. Though some of the effects are a bit spotty, if you’re a fan of the character and/or the first two films, this trailer promises that Riddick is likely right up your alley.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer, poster, and images. The film also stars Katee Sackhoff, David Bautista, Jordi Mollà, Matt Nable, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujillo, and Nolan Gerard Funk. Riddick opens in traditional theaters and IMAX on September 6th.
The indie drama Sexy Evil Genius – now available on DVD, digital download and VOD, and including audio commentary with director Shawn Piller and actors Seth Green and Harold Perrineau – tells the story of a group of people who are lured to the same bar in downtown Los Angeles by Nikki (Katee Sackhoff), an ex-girlfriend they all have in common. Beautiful, manipulative and possibly a bit insane, Nikki has one last surprise in store for her ex-lovers.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Katee Sackhoff talked about how challenging it was to play a role with so much dialogue, that she actually hired a friend to be her line coach, how they determined the way Nikki would behave with each of her exes, and what she personally thought of Nikki. She also talked about how happy she is with the status of her career right now, that she’s gotten to see bits and pieces of the new Riddick film and it’s awesome, what drew her to the role of Dahl, her desire to make the character stronger than any other character she’s ever played, and the status of the all-female Expendables film that she’s signed on to do. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
The first trailer for Riddick is now online. It’s been a long wait for such a short teaser, but it’s got everything you crave in a Riddick movie: Vin Diesel, fearsome creatures, eyeshine in the dark and stone-cold one-liners from the titular anti-hero. There’s not much in the way of plot (or co-stars) revealed here, but the tone is spot on.
Also starring Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff and Dave Bautista, writer/director David Twohy’s Riddick opens September 6th. Hit the jump to watch the first trailer.
I know what you’re thinking: Another day, another Riddick image. At least Vin Diesel has someone else to play with in this newest image from the David Twohy picture. This time around, Diesel is at the mercy of Diaz (Dave Bautista), or is it the other way around?

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 Emmerich—Antoine 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.

Known as the Acting Outlaws, actresses Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer (who both worked on Battlestar Galactica together) participate in a variety of charity events, in an effort to raise money and awareness for causes they feel strongly about. With a merchandise store (at www.ActingOutlaws.org) that includes various t-shirts and a documentary of the motorcycle ride they took from Los Angeles to Louisiana, they now have a 2013 calendar that features 12 months of exclusive photos of the women in classy and provocative poses.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Katee Sackhoff talked about how the Acting Outlaws came about, what made them decide to do their first-ever calendar, where her interest in and love for motorcycles started, and more. She also talked about returning to her A&E drama series Longmire for Season 2, which starts shooting again in the middle of March, her experience making the next Riddick film with Vin Diesel, for which she had a nude scene that she needed to get her father’s permission for first, that she’s seen bits and pieces of the film while recording ADR and said that it’s bloody but that the R rating is definitely more for the language, how she’s attached to do the all-female Expendables movie with Gina Carano and that she’s excited about all of the women that they’re talking to for roles in it, and what it was like to work with Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) on the horror film Oculus. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
Last month, we confirmed that David Twohy‘s Riddick would be getting an R-rating. Today, Twohy has announced that he’s hard at work on post-production, and he’s released a look at the official logo as well as the first image of Karl Urban as Vaako. Regarding the logo, this may not be the logo for the final film. Productions usually cook up their own logo for the movie their working on, and then the studio will usually tweak it or redesign it completely so that it fits in better with the advertising materials. As for Vaako, it looks like he won’t be able to escape the blue filter that haunted him in Chronicles of Riddick.

After years of work, Wu-Tang Clan member Rza’s writing and directorial debut, The Man with the Iron Fists is finally hitting screens on November 2nd. The film, co-written by Eli Roth and presented by Quentin Tarantino is a cross-cultural mashup of 70s Kung Fu, 90s gangsta rap and 00s comic book logic. Perhaps the film’s strangest element is Dave Bautista, the WWE wrestler turned mainstream actor who plays the heavy, Brass Body, a man with impenetrable metal skin.
Last weekend Collider sat down with Bautista back stage at the House of Blues Sunset to discuss the film. During the interview we talked about Hollywood fame, where Brass Body got his powers, a bit about the new Riddick film and more. Hit the jump to watch..
Since the film was announced, Vin Diesel has promised that Riddick would return to the series’ roots and get an R-rating. Today, the MPAA has confirmed that the anti-hero’s new film will indeed be rated-R. It’s not too difficult to land an R-rating, but fans should be pleased that they’ll probably be getting something along the lines Pitch Black and Escape from Butcher Bay rather than The Chronicles of Riddick.
Hit the jump for the movie’s synopsis. The film also stars Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk, Keri Hilson, and Bokeem Woodbine.
Today, we have two images of two leading men with weapons: Vin Diesel as Riddick and Tyler Perry as Alex Cross. Diesel has been hard at work completing the third film in the franchise that started with Pitch Black and continued in The Chronicles of Riddick. This iteration finds our anti-hero left for dead on a desert planet infested with predators. Riddick is forced to activate a beacon that alerts mercenaries to come and collect their prize.
Perry stars in the adaptation of James Patterson’s novel, “Cross,” as the titular detective. Alex Cross pits Perry against a sadistic serial killer (Matthew Fox) in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. Hit the jump to check out the images.
