Though Vin Diesel plays a tough and ruthless antihero in Riddick, he also has a tender side to his character since he seen saving a space dog in the new clip of the film.
Apart from Diesel and the space puppy, the video also features an ugly alien, or perhaps the ugliest alien you’ll ever see. The alien ambushes Riddick with its long tail. The alien then threatens the film’s protagonist and shouts at the top of its voice, leaving some forgettable visuals of his ugly face behind.
Just as Riddick tries to grab his weapon, the alien pushes him; while Riddick is doubtlessly strong and brawny, the alien is way more powerful than him, and it clearly shows. Enter Riddick’s space dog, who perhaps feels its barking would scare off the alien. Realizing he not only has to save himself but his pet too, Riddick runs (in slow-mo) and gets hold of his weapon, steers towards the alien....and we don’t know if he kills the ugly monster or not since the clip ends. Cool move by the makers.
Vin Diesel, in and as Riddick, is powerful and merciless. After being betrayed by his own race, Necromongers, and left to die on a desolated planet, Riddick only becomes stronger. Before returning to his home planet Furya to save it from destruction, Riddick unleashes a savage attack of retribution to settle scores with his enemies.
