Vin Diesel will arrive back in theaters in a couple weeks with Fast & Furious 6, but looking further along the calendar this year, he'll also bring another fan favorite franchise back to theaters.
OK, so Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick isn't exactly on the same level as the Fast franchise, but its ardent, die-hard fan base has been waiting almost a decade for the third movie in the Riddick franchise.
Diesel has been dropping sneak peek images on his Facebook for several months now, but nothing, I mean NOTHING, will prepare you for the grand scale that Riddick has in store for us.
The film finds Riddick left for dead and up against an alien race of predators. To complicate matters, a man from Riddick's past is also hunting him down.
Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff and Dave Bautista co-star in the three-quel which is due to hit theaters on September 6. Take a look at the first trailer, poster and new images below and let us know if you like what you see!

If you like Pitch Black you will love Riddick!
At the end of the movie did Dhal left w/Riddick or not?
I saw “Pitch Black” because I really needed a sci-fi / horror fix. I had no real expectations other than hoping it wouldn’t be a total flop. It was SOOO much better than I ever expected. Riddick was an immediate score as an antihero. I wasn’t as impressed with “Chronicles…”, so I’m hoping this one brings that dark shine back to us.
It's hard to believe the budget for this new movie was only around $40 million. Anyway, I liked "Pitch Black" but hated "Chronicles of Riddick." I'll see this because it has regional appeal, meaning one of the actresses is from my area.
The Chronicles will be hard to match. It does look similar to Pitch Black with the beast and the Chronicles in taking out the Merc.
I'm still going to go see it and give it a thumbs up if it's good or a thumbs down blasting if it's just trying to make a buck off of the fans.
Beware, Hollywood, of taking us for fools. User Reviews and Facebook (and other app) recommendations matter more than the critics.
Can you say.....Pitch Black Rip off!!!!
This prequel sequel may not be Oscar material but the series is such a great sci-fi coaster ride. This character is a glove fit for Diesel's acting style and I for one welcome Riddick's return!!!
"Welcome to the party, pal."

"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
