Vin Diesel returns in the full-length 'Riddick' trailer, again picking up his title character from 'The Chronicles of Riddick' after he's been left for dead on a lifeless, sun-scorched planet. But death is not an option for this action star.

We got a brief teaser-worth of footage back in March, but this is 2 minutes and 30 seconds of action, and Vin Diesel kicking some mercenary and alien butt. Like we said, he's been left for dead on a seemingly deserted planet and his only hope to leave this desolate place is to send out a beacon signal. However, it's this beacon that attracts some mercs looking to collect a bounty. As the new 'Riddick' trailer shows, they picked the wrong guy to hunt!

'Riddick' hits theaters on September 16 and stars Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk and Keri Hilson. You can next catch Diesel in 'Fast and Furious 6,' but after seeing this new trailer, we're a little more excited to go into darkness. Check it out below.

UPDATE: Here's the latest 'Riddick' poster to make your trailer watching that much better.
