Vin Diesel prepares for action in a new poster for Riddick

Vin Diesel’s Riddick is back for an eponymous third outing, and a new poster’s been released as a reminder.

Featuring Diesel crouched down and ready for action (blade: check; space goggles: check; heavy-duty walking boots: check), the poster sports the slightly bemusing tagline, ‘Survival is his revenge’. We’re guessing that survival is just going to be the beginning of it once Riddick starts exacting his vengeance...

Set some time after the events of The Chronicles Of Riddick , the new film promises to be much closer tonally to Pitch Black , the tough, modestly-budgeted sci-fi that launched the character.

This time out, the gruff antihero finds himself left for dead on an arid planet. As well as having the habitat’s predatory wildlife to deal with, he has a clan of mercenaries and a figure from his past on his tail.

Check out the poster in full below:

Directed by David Twohy and co-starring Katee Sackhoff, Karl Urban and Dave Bautista, Riddick opens in the UK on 4 September 2013.
