Some more information about the new game, Riddick: The Merc Files is surfacing. Apparently it will be focused on stealth game play and strategy. On your second play through a level, your strategy might not work the same way. Like Riddick, you will have to adapt to your surroundings. It also appears that they plan on keeping the game updated with new downloads and patches after its released.

Well Furyans, Riddick is doing very well at the box office. As of Monday it has grossed over $28 million worldwide. On a $38 million budget it should make its money back by the end of the week.

A few videos have been posted that I think visitors will be interested in. One is the making of the Riddick Motion Comic and the other is a Wikia Experts Showcase on the movie with David Twohy. I have embedded them below.

July 19, 2013

San Diego Comic Con is here! IGN has kicked things off, debuting the Riddick Motion Comic! It is titled Blindsided, I wouldn't call this a motion comic though, this is more animation.

It is over 5 minutes in length and has Vin Diesel and Karl Urban lending their voices.

New Riddick poster. Thanks to Lebanese Cinema Movie Guide and Bleeding Cool for the image. What a poster!

June 30, 2013

Here are some informative articles on the new Riddick film. I think some type of NDA must have lifted from when all of these people visited the set because everyone is running similar stories. These two articles have some new information though.

Vin posted a poster for "Riddick". This poster will be seen at San Diego Comic Con 2013, where the film will have a presence.


Additionally, a new trailer for Riddick has been posted on Youtube by Metropolitan Films. http://youtu.be/IDPB2wUpff0

If you are looking for a good time to buy the Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick, now is the time. Universal has put out Limited Edition BluRay Steel Boxes of both films. These contain the movie in Bluray, DVD, ITunes and Ultraviolet.
I got my two copies at Walmart for just $12.95 a piece, but Amazon has them on the cheap as well. The only downside...no Dark Fury. But these are still worth it to have the two main Riddick flicks available in any format. Especially for those of us who have almost worn out the old DVD's.


May 24, 2013

With Fast & Furious 6 in theaters, Vin has been making the rounds on the talk show circuit. Check out two new Furyan t-shirts he is sporting. I put the classic grey one at the bottom for reference.

By the way, Fast & Furious 6 was freaking awesome, they just keep getting better and better. Also, a slightly longer cut of the Riddick trailer was included. I hope everyone who went to see Fast Six goes out for Riddick as well.



May 15, 2013
The first full length trailer for Riddick has appeared on YouTube via Machinima's Channel.
