Christian Sesma is a fellow Coachella Valley resident and it.s heartwarming that the accomplished director always gives back to the community every time he.s making a new movie.

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he's encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won't leave the planet without Riddick's head as their trophy. Starring: Vin Diesel as Richard B. Riddick Karl Urban as Lord Siberius Vaako Katee Sackhoff as Dahl Jordi Mollà as Santana Nolan Gerard Funk as Luna Dave Bautista as Diaz Matt Nable »
Vin Diesel ‘Riddick’ box office: Underwhelming domestic debut Universal’s distribution chief Nikki Rocco may have called Riddick‘s opening-weekend figures "a great result," but an estimated $18.7 million from 3,107 North American theaters — $2.5 million of that total from 314 IMAX locations — for an action-packed sequel starring Vin Diesel is a disappointing debut. In fact, if studio estimates for the September 6-8, 2013, weekend are on target, Riddick‘s per-theater average barely surpassed the $6,000 mark: $6,010 per location, to be exact. And even though it’s true that the weekend after Labor Day tends to be pathetically slow at the U.S./Canada box office, and that this year’s top-ten figures were 29% above last year’s, Riddick‘s box-office gross undeniably fell below expectations. (Photo: Vin Diesel in Riddick.) Box office pundits, for instance, had been predicting an opening north of $20 million for the $38 million-budgeted, independently financed sci-fi actioner. And Riddick‘s opening-weekend gross »

For the final part of our Riddick special features, we have a press conference interview with writer/director David Twohy from a recent press day. During his session, Twohy discussed why he enjoys collaborating with franchise star Vin Diesel, how the R-rating for Riddick meant that they would be making the sequel independently, his thoughts on creating strong characters, future plans and much more:
Question: I was wondering if you could start off by discussing whether or not the final version of Riddick is how you envisioned and were there any unique challenges you faced while making the film?
David Twohy: Yeah, I would say that the final movie does embody what we always envisioned because as a responsible filmmaker, I have to imagine the whole movie; I have to script the movie, I have to board it out, I have to budget it and I have to figure »

Directed by David Twohy.
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.
Before you watch this film, you’ve got to ask yourself a few questions. Do you like space aliens? Do you enjoy watching people get killed in a variety of ways? Do you enjoy looking at topless women? If your answer is yes to all three then Riddick is the film for you. Without meaning to oversimplify Riddick as a picture, that is basically what you are going to get – no more, no less.
The film starts off well enough as we find our favourite Furyan abandoned on an inhospitable planet, »

Chicago – Did anyone else think there would be another film about Richard Riddick, Vin Diesel’s character from the great “Pitch Black” and not-great “The Chronicles of Riddick”? Me neither. But writer/director David Twohy won’t give up on this character, one he turns into even more of an iconized superhero in his third film, “Riddick,” the most B-movie of the three.
When it embraces that low-budget, B-movie, John Carpenter-esque aesthetic, it works enough to recommend as a late-Summer bit of escapism but the movie is too bloated to stand next to the first. Still, more than after “Chronicles,” I’d happily see a fourth “Riddick” film. Why not at this point?

This Friday, the almost ten year wait is over as Vin Diesel returns to theaters everywhere as the titular anti-hero Riddick in the sequel which is appropriately known simply by the character’s last name. During a recent press day, co-star Katee Sackhoff discussed her unorthodox approach in preparing for her role as the badass mercenary Dahl, her thoughts on collaborating with Vin Diesel, how she handled herself alongside a cast made up entirely of men and much more.
Question: How did the guys you were working on Riddick with approach their physical moments with you while filming?
Katee Sackhoff: You know, it’s a rare moment that you get where another actor ever hurts you; it’s just not normal. If anything, it’s sometimes a »

Opening this weekend is writer-director David Twohy's Riddick. The R-rated film finds Vin Diesel’s character being hunted by mercenaries, and once again, they’re hopelessly outmatched by the anti-hero who can see in the dark. But the mercs and their bounty are forced to team up when lethal alien monsters attack. If you're a fan of Pitch Black, you're going to be very happy watching Riddick. The film also stars Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Molla, Dave Bautista, Raoul Trujillo, Bokeem Woodbine and Nolan Gerard Funk. At the recent press day in Los Angeles I landed an exclusive interview with Katee Sackhoff. She talked about making the film, what surprised her about the filming process, how she was cut out of Pitch Perfect (but still gets residuals), the best part of attending conventions, Twitter, what she collects, Oculus, and much more. Note: Slight spoilers are discussed towards the end of the interview. »

Film: "Riddick"; Cast: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Gerard Funk and Conrad Pla; Director: David Twohy; Rating: *1/2
Complete with spacecrafts, animals and air-bikes in an arid alien planet, "Riddicka" is Vin Diesel's vulnerable and vain attempt to promote himself as a sci-fic action hero.
The film takes off with a vulture like creature circling the sky looking for its prey. And when bird swoops to get its booty, all of a sudden. »

Making it as an independent production that allowed them to have the creative freedom to return to its R-rated roots, Riddick – the much-anticipated new chapter of the captivating sci-fi saga that includes Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick – is a dark thriller that sees the anti-hero wanted by every mercenary and bounty hunter in the known galaxy, and both Riddick (Vin Diesel) and the mercs are forced to fight for survival. The film also stars Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Molla, Dave Bautista, Raoul Trujillo, Bokeem Woodbine and Nolan Gerard Funk. At the film’s press day, writer/director David Twohy spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about bringing the franchise back, knowing where they want the story to end up (ideally with two more films), how much the story changed over the years, the challenges of making a stand-alone movie while also incorporating the previous mythology, how »
