Third Riddick movie concept art released!
On Vin Diesel’s Facebook page the actor has shown some concept art for the upcoming Riddick movie. This third movie is slated for a 2012 release and entitled simply as ‘Riddick’. For a few months now the actor has released snippets of concept art. I hope this movie will try to trace back its roots and have a more character driven script. So far the Riddick universe has been a mixed blessing. The second movie was perhaps not the financial success hoped for but it wasn’t bad either. Personally I though its special effects were well executed and it’s story was marginally satisfying. However, it less than stellar performance practically ruled out more sequels on the same scale. Meanwhile Vin Diesel’s own game company (Tigon Studios) released some very good computer games that set the bar higher for adventures. Here is hoping this third movie will be a treat for true Riddick fans.
Here is the synopsis.
Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
