‘Riddick’ Release Date Revealed & Will Go IMAX!

19 December 2012 10:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Vin Diesel has confirmed the release date for his sci-fi threequel Riddick, the next in the franchise that follows the futuristic adventures of serial-killing antihero, Richard B. Riddick. The Pitch Black actor announced via his Facebook page that Riddick will arrive in cinemas 6th September 2013 and has also secured an IMAX release (fingers crossed it’s the same for us here in the UK).

Riddick will this time have that ruthless and selfish streak back after the bloated shenanigans of The Chronicles Of Riddick. Crash landing on a mysterious planet and wanted by every bounty hunter in the universe, Riddick alerts those hunting him to his whereabouts, with a survival scheme to see the planets vicious creatures do their worst on the headhunters coming to collect their prize – and hopefully stealing one of their vehicles to make his escape.

After 9 Years, ‘Riddick’ Returns to Theaters in 2013

19 December 2012 8:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal will be putting Riddick – the third movie in the sci-fi franchise – in theaters on September 6, 2013, ending what will be a 9-year drought without Vin Diesel and his eyesight issues. Not only will the star be returning, writer/director David Twohy is also on board, meaning (at the very least) a sense of stylistic consistency. Unsurprisingly, the new feature has a lower budget and will involve less blockbuster-style action. This is pretty damned cool. Pitch Black was a lot of fun, Chronicles of Riddick was solid, and Diesel excels as this kind of survivalist action hero. The September slot doesn’t reveal a ton of confidence (which seems naturally after a poor tentpole showing and nine years), but this thing doesn’t have to change the world. It could be a bright spot in an otherwise dull wait until Awards Season 2013. Here’s the official synopsis: The infamous Riddick has been left »

Vin Diesel Bringing 'Riddick' to IMAX Screens in September

19 December 2012 7:08 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Vin Diesel fans: Start your engines.    The action just doubled down on 2013, meaning you’ll get more Vin for your money. With the sixth Fast and the Furious film ready to roar into theaters on May 24, Diesel just confirmed via THR that his planned Pitch Black sequel – simply titled Riddick – will storm multiplexes on Sept. 6.    Diesel reunites with writer/director David Twohy for the third chapter of their sci-fi storyline, which Diesel has been telling journalists will refernce the dark, lean methods of Pitch Black (instead of the bloated, flashy The Chronicles of Riddick, which alienated fans).    THR adds that Riddick will be released in IMAX by Universal.   So tell us, Diesel fans – which Vin...

‘Riddick’ Hits IMAX Theaters in September 2013; Vin Diesel to Become ‘Kojak’

19 December 2012 7:06 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Vin Diesel re-invigorated both his flailing career and the Fast and the Furious series when he returned for the fourth installment, Fast & Furious (passing over his Tokyo Drift cameo, that is). We’ll have to wait and see if he replicates that success with the belated followup to the cult science-fiction titles Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick, simply titled Riddick.

We have two Diesel-related stories to cover today, beginning with the confirmation that Riddick has (finally) secured a theatrical release date. In addition, its leading man is lined up for a new project (one which involves neither fugitive racers nor intergalactic bounty hunters, no less): a movie based on the popular 1970s crime procedural Kojak.

In certain circles, there’s far more interest in Vin Diesel’s return to the Pitch Black universe with Riddick than next year’s ...

Riddick gets a release date

19 December 2012 3:32 AM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Vin Diesel has revealed the release date of Riddick via his official Facebook page, after teasing the information for some time. The threequel, which follows on from Pitch Black and The Chronicles Of Riddick, will open in the Us on 6 September 2013, with a UK release date yet to be confirmed (although we’d imagine it’d be around the same time). It’s getting an IMAX release on top of a conventional cinema run, which suggests we can expect some pretty ambitious visuals, despite the synopsis giving the impression that the film...

Riddick Finally Gets a Release Date

19 December 2012 1:27 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Riddick, the third film in following the infamous criminal of the same name (a sequel to Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick), has had a somewhat rocky production and even though it wrapped up filming a few months ago, there's been nary a mention as to when fans might see it.  Now we know as Universal Pictures has finally announced a release date. 

The sequel to Chronicles of Riddick has been long-gestating.  First it didn't seem like it was going to happen, because of the director's (David Twohy) insistence on an R rating.  Then things finally came together and Vin Diesel started showing off concept art and minor details on his Facebook page.  Filming finally started...then had to shut down because the money stopped coming.  Eventually the money came back and production resumed again.  So, it's been a long and winding road to this film.

Riddick Finally Finds A Release Date Next Fall

19 December 2012 1:13 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's been nearly a decade since we last saw Vin Diesel slap on a pair of round goggles and go around space being called Riddick, but that streak is coming to an end. Eight years after the release of The Chronicles of Riddick an official release date has been announced for it's sequel. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Universal Pictures will be releasing Riddick into theaters on September 6, 2013 and, what's more, they are planning a corresponding IMAX release to go with it. It will be the first movie in the series to be released during the fall, as Pitch Black was a February release while the previously mentioned Chronicles was out in the heart of summer. But the latest title is currently sitting on prime real estate competition-wise. While not historically a great week for movies, it's currently the only wide release scheduled for that weekend and is spaced »

18 December 2012 4:33 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Universal will release Riddick, the third installment of the sci-fi action movie series starring Vin Diesel, on Sept. 6. The movie also will be released on Imax. Riddick is an escaped-convict antihero whose exploits were first regaled in 2000’s Pitch Black. The movie proved to be a hit, and a sequel -- blown up to tentpole proportions -- ensued with 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick. It took several years, but a new movie got underway with the intent to bring the character to his stripped-down roots with a more modest budget. David Twohy has written and directed all three

Constructive Concepts: A conversation with production designer Patrick Tatopoulos

Trevor Hogg chats with Patrick Tatopoulos about his career highs and lows as well as the craft of production design...

“My mission to come to the States to work was to create creatures and I’ve done that all the way through to I Am Legend [2007],” states French Production Designer Patrick Tatopolous who has frequently collaborated with filmmakers Alec Proyas (Knowing), Roland Emmerich (The Day After Tomorrow) and Len Wiseman (Total Recall).  “There were a lot of movies where I was only doing creature work and then a lot of them were I was doing creature work and production design.  I ended up doing some art direction for sets before I opened my creature shop.  I had a couple of bad experiences in the past but they made me think a creature has to fit in the element it’s created for.”  An essential element is to develop the creature before creating its environment. »
