Riddick kicks more ass than ever in gory NSFW 3-minute trailer

We’ve been wondering how Riddick would utilize that nifty R rating, and the latest redband trailer has the answer. You’ve seen Vin Diesel kick ass before, but not like this.

The lengthy new trailer shows off a ton of new footage, including some gory kills, salty language and a lot more of those wicked alien monsters.

We also get a better setup of the plot, which finds Riddick (Diesel) taken captive by a team of mercenaries (including Battlestar Galactica alum Katee Sackhoff). But things go off the rails quickly once their camp is attacked by some crazy alien creatures.  The more we see, the more this reminds us of Pitch Black — and that's a very good thing.

The film finally opens Sept. 6. Until then, check out the new trailer above and catch up with the official synopsis below:

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless.  Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered.  The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.

The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal.  With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.

 Is this the Riddick sequel you've been waiting for all these years?
