New “Riddick” film for September 2013

When did David Twohy morph into Billy Bob Thornton? Did I miss a meeting?

Which is to say, the eagerly awaited (by nerds like me) new “Riddick” movie opens in the US on the 6th of September 2013 – it’s got a release date, IMAX makeover and everything!  Huzzah for monosyllabic, goggle-wearing anti-heroic bad-asses!

It’s a smart move as this date positions it in the early autumn genre slot which has been kind in recent years to the likes of the “Resident Evil” series and gets it out-of-the-way of the last of Summer’s heavy hitters – for example, the Matt Damon starring, Neill Blomkamp directed sci-fi actioner, “Elysium“, which opens in early August next year.

And, by that time, we’ll have had another slice of absurd automotive carnage with the latest entry in his other action franchise, “Fast Six” , having opened earlier in the spring, thus ensuring that Mr Diesel’s star has never been more in the ascendant.  Or so his people must be hoping – nobody wants to see more kiddie-skewing family comedies in his future, surely?  Let this man make an epic, geeky fantasy movie with a “D & D” flavour – there’s bound to be at least 5, maybe 6 other people on the planet who’d pay to see that, surely?

Trailer, please?
