Some more information about the new game, Riddick: The Merc Files is surfacing. Apparently it will be focused on stealth game play and strategy.

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.

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.

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.
