Vin Diesel returns to the big screen as Riddick next year. Here's the first poster for the film...

We've perhaps not given the upcoming big screen return for Riddick as much attention as we should have done these past few months. The new movie sees Vin Diesel reprising arguably his best big screen live action role, and it's been a tough job by the sounds of it to get the film made. Certainly there were budget issues and talks of shutdown at one stage, but all concerned finally managed to make their movie.

David Twohy is directing Riddick, and joining Diesel in the cast are Katee Sackhoff and Karl Urban, amongst others. A first poster for Riddick has popped up, too, and that increasingly tends to hint that a trailer isn't too far away. When one appears, we'll bring it your way.

For now, though, here's that poster...

Wasn't aware of this at all- must have slipped out of my radar...

Why does he look like Starkiller in Junk gear from Force Unleashed?

No Dredd 2 but we get a Chronicles of Riddick sequel?

I think that Dredd, while a fantastic movie, could never reach the levels or public popularity that Riddick has just based strictly off the violence and subject material.

Riddick: Pseudo-good guy real life superstar ex-con, fights aliens in the dark mostly, has group of friends to support cast and very mild stylized fight scenes on Star Wars type planets, clean.

Dredd: Cop psuedo-bad guy, with power to execute and happy to do so, fights murdering drug dealing mobsters, multiple insane uses of really cool slo-mo drug, long intense over the top slow mo super gore shots, scenes of dosing people then throwing them off buildings, bad guys firing openly on civilians including women and children, language more gore and very very dirty.

This is probably why we wont have a sequel to this fantastic movie. I thought Dredd was the biggest surprise movie of the year for me too.

Pitch Black was cool, hopefully they'll learn more from that movie for this

Super-excited about this since I seem to be one of the only people on the planet who enjoyed BOTH Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick. Not too happy about the increasingly confusing titles for the franchise, however. It's getting close to Rambo territory (ie: the fact that there is no Rambo II)...

This movie is a Pitch Black sequel. Chronicles of Riddick was a Pitch Black sequel. Pitch Black was an excellent movie!

Hell no, you're not alone! I LOVED both movies. I think that as long as they have a good script/plot they can carry this franchise. I think of the titles somewhat like the Alien and Predator movie titles....maybe someone was going for a retro feel. Alien, Aliens, Alien3, Predator, Predator II, Predators....

Glad I'm not alone. If nothing else, it's great to have an interesting sci-fi franchise that isn't Star Trek, Star Wars or Alien...

They should honestly set it on another planet similar to the one in Pitch black.
