'Riddick' Gets a New Poster and a Special Comic-Con 2013 AppearanceJacob Hall |
2013 is looking to be a good year for Vin Diesel. First, he got top billing in 'Fast and Furious 6,' which is shaping up to be one of the biggest hits of the year and in a few months, he'll return to the character who kickstarted his career, 'Riddick.' A new poster from the film has made its way online along with a special announcement from Mr. Diesel himself concerning Comic-Con 2013.
The poster was released through Diesel's own Facebook page along with a few nice words from the man himself. The poster is a little too familiar to get us too excited, but for fans of the underrated 'Pitch Black' and the kind of awful 'The Chronicles of Riddick,' it's another nice reminder that the badass sci-fi mercenary is officially returning to the big screen. Here's Diesel's message to his fans:
The long anticipated release of Riddick... the rated R continuation of the Furyan Chronicles, is now less than 3 months away...
September 6th... Imax!
I tell you this my people, because without your voice, it would have never come to pass.
P.s. San Diego Comic-Con International 2013, July 19... see you there.
So there you go! Diesel will be making an appearance at the film's Comic-Con 2013 panel, giving costumed geeks a chance to step up to a microphone and tell him how much 'The Iron Giant' makes them cry (and maybe ask a question or two about 'Riddick'). Of course, he also notes that the new film will play on IMAX screens and will return to the franchise's R-rated roots.
'Riddick' opens on September 6th, 2013. Check out the poster below.
