Right now Riddick (Blu-ray review) is number one on the home video charts, and you know what that means... Sequel talk! Such is the case today, and star Vin Diesel was so excited by the news, he decided to start dancing! But wait! There's more!
If you watch the video below, which features Diesel dancing(!) to both Katy Perry and Beyonce (seriously, you have to watch this), in between shaking his ass to their two songs, he mentions that Universal called him directly to give him the good news about the home video release and to inquire about the possibility of a sequel.

Vin Diesel is very excited this morning, and he has released a new video on his personal page to dance about it. He wants to thank fans for making Riddick the number one DVD in sales this month, and announced that Universal wants to develop a sequel.
Here's what he had to say, thanking his longtime fanbase for their support of the R rated franchise adventure, which landed on Blu-ray and DVD January 14th. (Warning, you have to get past about 3 minutes of Vin dancing and lip-syncing before he drops the news).
"I'm just excited, and happy, and I'm shouting out to you guys to say thank you. Universal just called me and told me Riddick is number one on the DVD charts. There's no way Riddick would have been made without you guys. You know that. and you guys have been a part of our page since 2012 and remember »
With Riddick (Blu-ray review) now available in stores, we've gotten hold of an imagining of our favorite Furyan's universe in an easy to use, interactive star map. Each of the planets on the map has hotspots that contain facts, images, and other content that gives fans a more in-depth look at the setting of the trilogy.
While the map doesn't reflect every aspect of the Riddick universe - and we certainly wouldn't advise it as a navigational tool - it definitely presents a jumping-off point for fans to discuss their favorite characters, scenes, and moments from the action-packed sci-fi franchise!

Indie Spotlight Review: Nobody Can Cool
Nobody Can Cool is the rather impressive directorial debut from up-and-coming filmmaking duo Dpyx, Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman, who crafted a blisteringly taut and thoughtful indie crime thriller with a palpable sense of tension from start to finish. A gritty and engaging tale of deceit, violence and desperation, Nobody Can Cool is anchored by a breakout performance by Nick Principe (best known from his work in the Laid to Rest series, Madison County and »

Bounty hunters and cartel killers have invaded Palm Springs, as production begins on The Night Crew, just one of the many projects that Danny Trejo is slated to star in this year. Trejo is working again with director Christian Sesma; they worked together on Shoot The Hero. For that matter so are some of the film's other stars, Luke Goss and Bokeem Woodbine. Other regulars include Jason Mewes and Paul Sloan. Canadian actress Chasty Bellesteros plays the mysterious Chinese woman mentioned below and Brazilian native Luciana Faulhaber adds some spice to the bounty hunter team.Yet, I am puzzled because evidence suggests (The Night Crew Facebook page) that filming has been going on since early December, and Sesma is already filming his next feature, Awol, but who...

Every bounty hunter wants Riddick’s head in a box. And Santana wants it badly.
Latino-Review has an exclusive interview with actor Jordi Molla from “Riddick.” He played the de facto leader of the mercenaries who hunted down Riddick in the film. And the tension between Riddick and Santana was not very nice.
Here’s the synopsis:
Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick’s past.
Check out the interview with Jordi Molla below.

Directed by David Twohy.
Betrayed and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick fights for survival against alien predators before activating a homing beacon that sees bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descending on his location, only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge.
Nine years after last donning the goggles, Vin Diesel is back for a third outing as the escaped convict, murderer and antihero Richard B. Riddick as he and writer-director David Twohy strip back the bloated excesses of The Chronicles of Riddick and look to revitalise the franchise by returning to its Pitch Black roots with the sci-fi survival horror Riddick.

If you know your movie trivia (or read IMDb like me) you’ll know that Vin Diesel agreed to the cameo in The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift so that he could take control of the Riddick franchise and become the producer, meaning that he could make a film based on the character independently. What we ended up with when Riddick was finally made was a film that resembled Pitch Black in many ways, and anybody who has seen that know that this comparison is not a bad thing.
In Riddick the titular character once again finds himself on a barren planet with the impending doom of something coming on the horizon, but this time a storm. Letting off a distress signal he brings two mercenary ships to the planet with the »
