The plot again focuses on the antihero Riddick, he has been left for dead on a desert planet where he finds himself fighting for his life against alien predators far more vicious than any human he has ever faced. Riddick is forced to use a beacon to alert the very bounty hunters he has been evading to come and collect him as this is the only way he can possibly escape.
The mercs that arrive are even more lethal than any Riddick has faced before, and on-board one of the ships is a captain who has a very personal score to settle.
Vin Diesel is joined by Karl Urban who reprises his role as Vaako, the former WWE wrestler Dave Bautista who plays Diaz and Katee Sackhoff who plays Dahl.
Riddick is scheduled to be released on the 6th September 2013.
