"You're not afraid of the dark, are ya?"
If that line uttered by Richard B. Riddick (Vin Diesel) in the new "Riddick" trailer sounds familiar, that's because, well, it is -- he said the same thing to the (mostly doomed) members of the supporting cast of his feature film debut, "Pitch Black" (2000).
And, somewhat thankfully, a lot of the "Riddick" trailer will remind you of "Pitch Black." Once again, our anti-hero -- a forever-hunted ex-con who can see in the dark thanks to a "shine job" he received during his time in the "slam" -- is on some desolate desert-like planet. A group of "bounty hunters" (why does he call them that and not "mercs"?) shows up, and Riddick proceeds to pick them off one by one. Then night falls and, well, if you've seen "Pitch Black," you know what that means -- the real monsters come out, forcing Riddick and his would-be hunters to join forces in an epic battle for survival.
