New behind the scenes featurette for ‘Riddick’ hits the web


riddick-chronicles-of-riddickRiddick, the highly anticipated sequel to the original Chronicles of Riddick franchise, is finally in promotional overdrive ahead of its September 6th release. Earlier this week we brought you the first clip from the film, titled “Ambush”, which showed Riddick and his adorable alien puppy being ambushed by a massive and deadly alien.

Now, a behind the scenes look at Riddick has been released by the film’s production company showing old and new footage from the film interspersed with interviews with the cast and crew, including lead actor Vin Diesel and director David Twohy:

Here’s a full synopsis for Riddick:

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.

The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.

Riddick will hit theaters on September 6th, 2013!
