Right now, the film Riddick is preparing to hit Blu-Ray and DVD on January 14th. It is currently available on Digital HD from places like Amazon Instant Video. However, if you want to do a little window shopping first, we’ve got your perfect solution right here. Thanks to Universal Studios Home Entertainment, you can watch the first 10 minutes of the film completely free.
Riddick is the latest chapter in the sci-fi/action series that started with 2000’s Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, which picked up 5 years after the events of Pitch Black.
Riddick picks up, ironically enough, five years after the events of The Chronicles of Riddick. Riddick, played once again by the brooding Vin Diesel, is left for dead on a sun-scorched planet. Facing down an alien race of fierce predators, he activates an emergency beacon which helps him to contact two different ships.
Unfortunately, this puts Riddick in quite a peculiar place. The two ships the beacon attracts could potentially spell trouble for him no matter which one gets to him first. One contains a ship full of brand new bounty hunters looking for a score, and the other carries a face from Riddick’s past.
In addition to Diesel, Riddick stars Longmire’s Katee Sackoff, Karl Urban, WWE Superstar Dave Bautista, singer/songwriter Keri Hilson and more.
