New promo imagery for Riddick

Riddick has released a pair of new promo images ahead of Comic-Con, both of which feature what appears to be the titular mercenary’s new pet.

Our favourite anti-hero might usually be a lone wolf, but it seems he’s got company this time around, in the form of a “primal animal Furyan”. Or “space-wolf”, as we prefer.

As it happens, Riddick can use all the help he can get as he finds himself marooned on a hostile planet populated by a race of bloodthirsty aliens.

Forced to send up a distress flare, Riddick succeeds in little more than alerting a posse of rival mercenaries to his presence, all of whom are keen on cashing in the bounty on his head.


Directed by David Twohy and co-starring Vin Diesel, Kate Sackhoff and Karl Urban, Riddick will open in the US on 6 September 2013, with a UK date to be confirmed.
