Today's Hot Trailer: Vin Diesel Returns as Riddick in Brief New Teaser

"You're not afraid of the dark, are you?"
This year, Vin Diesel will return in theaters as two of his most famous characters, Dom Toretto in May's Fast & Furious 6 and the antihero Riddick in this fall's aptly-titled Riddick. The third installment in the live-action Riddick movies (discounting the animated The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury), Riddick was a labor of love for Diesel and writer-director David Twohy after the box office disappointment that was 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick, but, fortunately, for those that have stuck with the character throughout the movies and video games, Twohy may have figured out a plan that could make the sequel a hit: make it more like 2000's Pitch Black, the movie that got the whole Riddick train moving in the first place.
Like Pitch Black, Riddick again finds himself on an alien planet battling against predatory creatures. Eventually, bounty hunters descend on the planet and get ensnared in Riddick's plan for revenge, but the brief teaser trailer concentrates more on the creatures than the bounty hunters.
Riddick co-stars Karl Urban (Star Trek, Dredd), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Jordi Mollà (Colombiana, Knight and Day) and Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall).
