A new awesome motion comic was recently released on IGN. It basically bridges the gap between Chronicles of Riddick and the upcoming film. Vin Diesel reprises his role in the comic, and it turned out to be a really interesting story. I suggest you check it out, as I’m sure we’ll see elements of this story in the upcoming film, which comes out on September 6th!
The David Twohy-directed also stars Karl Urban, Jordi Mollà, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujillo, and Nolan Gerard Funk.
[box] 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.[/box]
