Well, it looks like the third Riddick movie is still chugging along. Sure it’s had its share of problems, you know like having the whole production being stopped and locked out of the studio due to money issues. That’s all in the past now and we are inching closer and closer to learning more about who Riddick is, or at the very least what he looks like in this third installment. Vin Diesel was nice of enough to release an image via his Facebook of him in character to the internet, tagged with “Grateful for the opportunity to make magic… Thank you.“
Hit the jump to see the pic, but I will warn you, it might count as a spoiler.
That sure is Vin Diesel dressed up like Riddick…. what the hell did you expect? Maybe I am just cynical but The Chronicles of Riddick was a lame by the numbers kind of movie that leaves my expectations very low on this one. Sure its got Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff and, Jordi Mollà. Plus the synopsis that’s been floating (found below) around doesn’t sound to bad, but… still.
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.
Is it just me, or does it look like Riddick raided Jor-El‘s laundry hamper?
