Vin Diesel faces off with an alien monster in 1st clip from Riddick

Think Vin Diesel will just be dealing with Katee Sackhoff and her band of mercenaries in Riddick? Think again.

The first clip from the upcoming sci-fi flick has finally been released, just two weeks before its Sept. 6 opening date, showing Riddick (Diesel) duking it out with a monstrous alien creature on a desolate planet. Spoiler alert: Riddick gets the upper hand in glorious fashion.

It definitely evokes the desperation of Pitch Black, with the ass-kicking loner out there just fighting for survival. This also gives us a better look at some of the effects work and action set pieces, which look solid in this footage.

If he’s having this much trouble with the natives, we can’t wait to see him mix it up with the mercs. Check out the clip below and let us know what you think:
