‘Riddick: Blindsided’ Motion Comic Prequel Offers A Little Animated Action and Bloodshed

Riddick Header

Riddick was one of 2013’s most entertaining and satisfying genre movies for many reasons, the most important being that it brought Vin Diesel‘s favorite character back to his darker, more violent roots in gloriously bloody R-rated style. I loved it on first viewing and on the second it just seemed to improve a bit in spite of its flaws.

The movie is hitting Blu-ray in a few weeks and among the extras are an extended director’s cut with eight minutes of additional footage, several behind-the-scenes featurettes, and the motion comic, Riddick: Blindsided, which acts as prequel of sorts to the film.

Blindsided was released online over the summer prior to Riddick‘s theatrical release. You can watch it here below.

Vin Diesel Used ‘Fast & Furious’ Cameo Role To Retain Rights To ‘Riddick’

Normally, an actor would like to be paid handsomely for a small cameo role in a film, but not Vin Diesel. Instead of receiving a check, the actor received something that was closer to his heart and much more valuable: the rights to his character Riddick. Diesel talked about the trade during the Riddick film premiere in L.A.

In 2006, when Universal was looking to give the Fast & Furious franchise a recharged, they wanted to bring back the face of the franchise to ensure that fans would return for more – four more if you’re keeping count. So when the studio asked Diesel to appear in a cameo role in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift; the actor agreed, but instead of being given a check, the actor acquired the rights to Riddick.

SDCC 2013: Riddick panel banner

With the third film in the Riddick series, simply titled Riddick this time, set to launch in a few months, attendees at San Diego Comic-Con got an advance look today at the upcoming sci-fi/action epic. On the panel to talk about the film was writer/director David Twohy, and actors Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious series), and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica).

A new restricted trailer was shown during the panel, which is now online. Watch it here below.

Twohy started off by talking about coming to Comic-Con years ago when Pitch Black first came out and how excited he was for the new movie. Katie Sackhoff was the first of the actors to come out followed by Vin Diesel and each had clips that showed off their character.

‘Riddick’ Trailer: Only One Can Rule The Dark

Riddick Header

The first trailer for Riddick was more concerned with announcing the return of the titular character than the actual story. From that one trailer alone, it looked like Riddick (Vin Disel) was banished to a desolate planet and thought to live his life on it in solitude. Little did he know that a band of bounty hunters was out for his head.

Now, a new trailer sheds light on that aspect. Watch the trailer here below.

The synopsis provides a little more in depth details as to how these bounty hunters come across the man who can see in the dark. Riddick, in a desperate act of survival, activates an emergency beacon that finds its way into the hands of nefarious bounty hunters. But this is Riddick we are talking about, and the man isn’t about to go down without a fight.

Though it has been nine long years since the last Riddick movie hit theaters, star Vin Diesel felt that there were still a few more stories to tell about the infamous antihero with the ability to kill his enemies in a number of ways. Now, a new live-action Riddick film, simply titled Riddick, will hit theaters this September, and the first teaser for the film has arrived online.

Check out the trailer here after the jump.

There isn’t too much in terms of plot reveals in this trailer. From the trailer’s few precious seconds of dialogue we get, as well as the official synopsis, we find that Riddick is imprisoned on an desolate island which is inhabited by fearsome creatures and equally fearsome bounty hunters out for his head.

Jordi Molla

Despite some recent financial headaches that halted filming for two months, the production of the upcoming Riddick, which will bring Vin Diesel back to the star-making role he first played in the 2000 sci-fi thriller Pitch Black, is moving full-speed ahead.

The David Twohy-directed sequel has just added a new player to its growing cast: according to Variety, Jordi Molla, the Spanish actor who has played outsized heavies in big-budget action movies such as Knight and Day and Bad Boys II, is currently in negotiations to play the role of “Santana, a mercenary who heads up an eight-man crew tasked with finding and killing Riddick.” The actor was recently seen as the villain in the Zoe Saldana action flick Colombiana.

The production of Riddick, the latest in the sci-fi action franchise starring Vin Diesel as a fearsome criminal antihero with exceptional night vision, was well underway before it was shut down reportedly due to a severe cash flow shortage.

TMZ spoke with Michel Trudel, the owner of the studio in Montreal where the film was shooting, who said that Diesel’s production company One Race Films has failed to make its payments for the use of his facilities on time. As a result Trudel states that he was forced to evict the Riddick cast and crew from the studio and even changed the locks until he is paid in full. He’s not alone there; according to unnamed sources close to the production, more than a few members of the crew have not received their paychecks in over two weeks.
