Riddick: Red Band Trailer

Posted July 19, 2013 11:11 PM by Webmaster

Universal 100thUniversal Studios has debuted a new red band trailer for director David Twohy's Riddick, which stars Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Noah Danby, Nolan Gerard Funk, Jordi Mollą and Bokeem Woodbine. The third entry in the sci-fi action series opens in U.S. theaters on September 6th.

Synopsis: Diesel reprises his role as antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy. Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless, Riddick finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he's encountered. The only way off is for the hardened killer 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.

@ CandyStalker

That makes sense...comparing 2 movies that were typical Oscar bait (and awarded accordingly) to an escapist sci-fi/action movie that obviously has no designs on Academy Awards.

Pitch Black is still a hugely entertaining and well-written film. This one definitely gives off more Pitch Black vibes than the second one did. Plus, Riddick's eyes look even more badass now. A bunch of respect to Vin Diesel for sacrificing his own paycheck to have this be Rated R.

No bawlingbilly10, not a troll, just someone with better taste in movies than you. Pretty sure the lackluster 56% RT meter would agree with me, and the fact that the movie box office dropped like 70% in its second week due to bad word of mouth and the fact that all the DC fans had all rushed out on opening night to see it.

@ nathanp

I haven't seen either Man of Steel or World War Z as they both look ho-hum to me, but citing Rotten Tomatoes percentages and box office results is no way to evaluate how good a movie truly is...

RT percentages can't account for personal taste, so you never know if you'll like a movie or not until you see it. However, I do find that when RT percentages are overwhelmingly negative, like 30% or lower, the movie almost always truly does SUCK. When the RT percentages are overwhelmingly positive, however, they tend to be off at times. I've seen movies in the 90% range that made me shake my head and wonder why anyone liked it.

As far as box office numbers are concerned, anyone who suggests that a movie is good or bad based on that doesn't know what they're talking about. Some of the worst movies ever have made a lot of money, and some of the better movies have completely bombed at the box office.

Iron Eagle 74 - the thing about box office is that terrible movies like Twilight for example make a ton up front and die off almost immediately because all the fanatics have already gone 3 times, just like Meh of Steel, after that it's all downhill. Avengers was a good movie that was number 1 for something like 6 weeks in a row, Meh of Steel won its opening weekend and hasn't placed higher than 3rd since. I agree that there are plenty of very good movies that don't perform well at the box office, but MoS isn't one of them, it was just plain weak in almost all areas, most notably the screenplay.

Is this a thread on Riddick, or a pissing contest to see who's opinion is right or wrong? Tone down the testosterone rush from the trailer and concentrate on the film at hand. Maybe a private forum or a street brawl would better suit your argument. As for this film, I hope it at least explains how Riddick ended up on a desolate planet after becoming the Marshall of the Necromonger Empire. Aside from that, it looks like a good film. But always remember - zombies DON'T run.

Come on I thought CandyStalker's comment was funny as hell. I'd like to think that CandyStalker is intelligent enough to know a Oscar contender when he/she sees one. I think it's a compliment to "Riddick" to be compared with those artistically awarded films.

In that last shot of the trailer, did anyone else expect Vin to leap off and catch Michelle Rodriguez midair?

Looks good, but is it a prequel to "The Chronicles of Riddick"? How did he lose his Necromonger army?

MetalMike666

It definitely is part Pitch Black with the creatures and desolate planet setting. But it also uses the mercenaries/bounty-hunters theme from Chronicles ... and since Karl Urban is in it, at least one Necromonger as well (I'm guessing he's in the second ship "captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal"). I think this means it must be a sequel to Chronicles.

So if Vaako (Urban) arrives after the merc's, and a lot of the movie seems focused on Riddick and merc interaction, Vaako (and other Necromongers?) will show up later/near the end of the film.

But as others have mentioned, how did Riddick get there after becoming the Necromonger leader? Perhaps near the start of the film the Necro's are involved in stranding him there. At about the 33 second mark of this clip, I swear those are dead Necromonger soldiers lying on the cliff and what looks like a Necro ship at 34 seconds before Riddick goes flying off the crumbling cliff. Of course this section could also be from the latter part of the movie when Vaako arrives. Maybe at the start Riddick decides he doesn't want to lead the Necro's and takes off in a ship which eventually crashes on this planet.

Pure speculation on my part obviously. But looks pretty good. A little bummed they show so much in the clip, especially (spoiler alert) Bokeem Woodbine's character seemingly getting pulled up and out to his death.

I would have much rather seen something along the necromancer lines than another monster movie. Chronicles is one of my favorite Sci-Fi movies of all time and I watch it all the time and it never gets old. I am going to wear that Blu-ray out eventually.

Nathanp -- I wouldn't be talking smack about Man of Steel when the movie have made $635,021,000 world wide, that's pretty damn good. World War Z have made $456,441,000 world wide so far and I don't think it's going to out beat Man of Steel... doesn't mean the movie is better then the other though.

Also, looking forward to Riddick: Red Band. Loved the first Pitch Black and this movie is by the same director!! Awesome!

Looks fun. Loved both PB and Chronicles. Glad to so sci-fi getting some decent theater time and rated R to boot. I'll supoport it on those basis alone. A break from the superhero stuff. Even though I like those too.
