Re: New Riddick thread

Definitely Pitch Black 2 vibe, but with fx aesthetics of Chronicles. Works for me

Is Urban still in this though as rumoured? Or just a cameo.

Re: New Riddick thread

He has a cameo at the start of the film. It does take place a few months after the events of "The Chronicles of Riddick".

This is going to be awesome. Twohy really wanted to go back and recapture "Pitch Black" but without losing what was established and expanded in "The Chronicles of Riddick". I think those that did have a problem with the latter film will be very pleased with "Riddick". It really goes back to the basics of the concept. I also get the feeling that Diesel really enjoys playing the character.

Re: New Riddick thread

^ I wanted to make a comment about Vin Diesel. I do like him and do enjoy his movies there has always been something about his acting that I had a difficult time figuring out. People like Clint Eastwood and Stallone can really project that tough persona. With Diesel I always get the impression that he is a real nice guy trying to act tough, so sometimes his characters come off that way too.

My theory for a while now has been that Urban's character will be one of the people who dumps him off on the planet. He was a bad guy right? I haven't watch Chronicles in ages and don't really remember much of it. I definitely plan on rewatching both it and Pitch Black before I see this one.

You keep what you kill. Really like the Riddickverse and enjoy the directors cut of Chronicles. Riddick does need a continuing nemesis though and Toomes is just to skitish.

Yeah he seems like a great friendly guy. I'd love to just hang out with him for a day.

Re: New Riddick thread

I'm glad to see Riddick back. I always felt that Chronicles was pilloried a bit unfairly. The movie wasn't perfect but I thought it was a good space opera film. I liked the Necromongers a lot and Dame Vaako was one sexy space Lady MacBeth.

As for the new film it seems like Twohy and Diesel have distilled everything down to what they think the fans want, more monsters and more bounty hunters. Hopefully they will get better results this time than with Chronicles. I'm pleased to see Katee Sackhoff in this. Though I'm not so sure about the monsters this time. I really liked the ones from Pitch Black.

Looking forward to check this out when it opens.

The story is also dictated by the budget. They had a big budget for the sequel, and a smaller, more Pitch Black budget for this new one.

Awesome trailer! I think I might want to rewatch the first two before it comes out.

Re: New Riddick thread

While I plan on seeing it (although probably not in theaters), I'm still not quite sold on it. It really feels like Pitch Black Redux with Starbuck.
