Vin Diesel is back for the third instalment in the sci fi series, which started with Pitch Black in 2000. The sci fi blockbuster 'Riddick' will see Diesel reprise the role of antihero Riddick a dangerous escaped convict.

The official synopsis reads as '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.'

Judging by the trailer it will have plenty of action as Diesel struggles to survive on a planet ruled by aliens. The film is directed by David Twohy and will star Karl Urban, Dave Bautista and Katee Sackhoff. Riddick is released on the 6th September 2013.
