Broadsheet Trailer Park: Riddick

1. File Under: No, Seriously.

2. Vin Diesel is still a movie star.

3. Dungeons & Dragons fan Diesel is using whatever juice the Fast & Furious flicks afford him to complete his trilogy of sci-fi epics, after splendid b-movie Pitch Black (2000) and its disastrous sequel, The Chronicles Of Riddick (2004). We admire his total commitment to Vin.

5. Vin Diesel isn’t his real name. That would be ridiculous. His real name is Des Diesel*.

6. Fast & Furious 6 (2013) is out now. It’s not as bonkers genius as the last one, but worth a trip for the ongoing homo-erotic tension between Vin and The Rock, plus a genuine WTF! moment during the closing credits.

7. Yes, he’s doing a Kojak movie next.

Release Date: September
