New in Theaters Sept. 06: Riddick

View Chris Kavan's Profile

For a few weeks the box office has been assaulted by a slew of new films... but few of them have found much luck as it has been The Butler that has been bringing in audiences. This week it a much more focused attack with just one film opening nationwide. Yet will one action sequel, even if it stars a pretty big name, be able to conquer the box office where so many others have failed? It may have the best chance, but something tells me The Butler isn't going to give up easily.

RIDDICK It has been nearly 10 years since we last got to hang out with Riddick - and that was in the less-than-stellar Chronicles of Riddick back in 2004. The math says that the longer you wait to release your sequel, the less likely it is that said sequel is going to make many waves. For Vin Diesel, this is more of a passion project (that's not necessarily a good thing... see Pacific Rim and After Earth) but Diesel's star has been on the rise thanks to the success of the Fast and Furious franchise, so he finally has the ability to make some other films. According to Diesel, the entire character is based, in part, on a D&D character, and so is the latest film. I think that's cool (because I'm a nerd) but in the end, I don't know if audiences - who have ignored action for most of the year - are going to rush in and support this. It looks interesting, but not necessarily amazing - I think the foreign grosses are really going to tell the story of this movie, as I don't see it having a huge impact in the U.S.

Other than Riddick, you only have a handful of limited releases coming out - including the faith-based The Ultimate Life and the Bollywood romance Shuddh Desi Romance. In a bid to cash in on the roast of James Franco, you also have a re-release of This Is the End - likely in an effort to push the film over the $100 million mark (it currently stands at $96.9 million, so it won't take much). I'll be back on Sunday to see who will be crowned champion.
