An international poster for 2013’s Riddick has appeared online.

Showing Vin Diesel looking mean and moody, the poster gives little away.

What we do know about director David Twohy’s sequel is that Riddick is set adrift on a desolate planet, having to fend off aliens and bounty hunters before battling for the fate of his home planet Furya.

I think it is fair to say that Pitch Black caught most people by surprise (this writer included), before The Chronicles of Riddick proved a bloated mess, so let’s hope this third entry strips things back and gives us an enjoyable chunk of sci-fi action.
