MTM: Riddick

Today’s movie trailer is for the new Vin Diesel flick Riddick. A lot of people may think that The Fast and the Furious put Vin Diesel on the map but I can assure you that it was the sci-fi film Pitch Black. Pitch Black is a great movie that came out back in 2000 (The Fast and the Furious came out in 2001). It is about a group of people led by Carolyn Fry (the gorgeous Radha Mitchell) who land on a desert like planet. They encounter the criminal Riddick (Diesel) and take him captive until they need him for some dangerous creatures that come out at night. It is simplistic in how it approaches the scares and action sequences and that is how it gets it right. The follow up to Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick, looked like it was trying too hard in the trailer so I never bothered to check it out. With Riddick they appear to be going back to their roots. Throw in science fiction goddess Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and I am there. Here is the trailer for the movie and it comes out September 6th. Have a good week!
