The Chronicles of Riddick Trailer

http://www.apple.com/trailers/unive...iclesofriddick/

I'm definately keen for this so far but two things struck me as odd.

1) They don't actually show a lot of Vin Diesel's character
2)I'm convinced that they're using part of the Half Life soundtrack in there.

What the? I wasn't expecting this at all. No clue what the hell it's about (other than that Diesel is reprising his role from Pitch Black), but the art direction and FX look pretty interesting. What does this have to do with PB other than the fact that it's the same lead character? Anyone with info, please respond.

i was watching it getting somewhat interested... and then i realized it was Vin Diesel, and he was talking.. and i decided .. not watching it.. anyone else just get really annoyed with his "acting" i dont know but he is someone that turns me away from a movie with no second thoughts.

the trailer looks pretty kewl, cant wait for it to come out but it sounds like an old story where the aliens try to wipe out humanity. thats wat i gathered from the trailer anyway.
some kewl fx too.
Hope its not all fx and no story line but im a sucker for full on action.

I love Vin Diesel! I know, I'm one of the few.

The art direction reminds me of the Dune mini, or <shudder> Dungeons and Dragons <shudder>. I'm looking forward to seeing the film, even though it seems to be nothing like the original.

Rock on Vin Diesel! You are the MAN!

Vin is COOl

I like the fact he is picking his moives, he did not do xxx2
he did not do a fast and a what ever 2.
It showes he is more then about the money. Given a chance I think he will grow as an actor.

"This is the sequel to Pitch Black, based upon a story idea by David Twohy. This is the first of three planned sequels to that film, but whether the 3rd and 4th movies get made depends upon how well this second film does at the box office. If they do, Twohy is already signed on to direct. "



i think it looks ok, going to have to wait to see more before i say anthing else. i like Diesel as an actor, we was great Saving Private Ryan...

KWAK is right, has a Dune feel to it

I too thought the sequel would explore the original predator aliens more, but guess I was wrong. I am of the camp that finds Diesel somewhat annoying (his best role was as the voice of Iron Giant).

I am not keen on the idea of these new aliens (if they are aliens) being so humanoid...been there done that. What made the original Pitch Black cool were the interesting alien designs and their natural history. I simply didn't think Riddick was an interesting enough a character to warrant his own movie. Oh well.

The trailer shows some interesting costume designs, but it keeps reminding me of a made for tv sci fi flick or a Star Treck episode.

I thought "Into Pitch Black" was pretty decent for a low budget film. Its definately not a favorite of mine, but seeing it makes me want to see this "Riddick" one, otherwise I would probably dismiss this as another bad movie- another bad movie with awesome vfx that iz...

I had to look a couple of times. Don't you think the girl with the guns looks very like Lara Croft? I thought they'd cut a few scenes in to see if anyone noticed.

Sweet! Another vin diesel-ite - we're a rare and dying breed it seems.

I was under the impression this trailer would play in front of ROTK, but to my surprise, there were no trailers in front of ROTK...was that just at my theatre?
