New RIDDICK Trailer Seemingly Ignores the Events of CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK

I'll admit it, I was a fan of CHORNICLES OF RIDDICK, which was the sequel to the sci-fi horror movie PITCH BLACK. Much like FAST FIVE and the new FAST & FURIOUS 6 also starring Vin Diesel, it expanded on the universe of the predecessors in a way that was very unexpected. The new trailer for the third installment in this series, RIDDICK, seems to have skipped out on the fact that CHRONICLES occurred, which is a shame. If you've seen the movie, you'll know why. On the other hand, I'm down for seeing Riddick go around and mercilessly hunting people again. Check out the trailer below, which comes to us thanks to the guys over at Latino Review.

So yeah, it looks to be more of a sequel to PITCH BLACK, doesn't it? It looks rad as hell in that "so bad it's dumb" kind of way. I'm not sure if I'll be checking it out in IMAX 3D, though. Here's the synopsis:
Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.

RIDDICK is directed by David Twohy. It stars Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff and Dave Bautista. It comes out fall 2013.
