Editor's Note
PITCH BLACK: A spacecraft carrying an assortment of passengers including Riddick (Vin Diesel), a dangerous, shackled murderer between prisons, is forced to make a crash landing on a barren, triple-sunned planet after the craft suffers severe damage during a meteor shower. The ship is ripped into pieces, killing several crew members and leaving meek officer Fry (Radha Mitchell) in charge of the survivors. After two unfortunate deaths, the survivors discover that the only visible life form on the planet is a species of light-fearing, carnivorous, occasionally cannibalistic aliens dwelling in caverns beneath the desert surface. Using a model of the planet and its suns in an abandoned research station, Fry deduces that she and her fellow travelers have unfortunately descended on the planet on the day of its first total eclipse in 22 years, giving them mere hours before they are bathed in total darkness. Only then is it safe for the hungry subterranean creatures to emerge, seeking to feed on the remaining survivors. However, the dangerous Riddick, through black market injections received in lock-up, is able to see in darkness- causing the surviving crew members to reluctantly remain dependent on the potentially harmful criminal. As the survivors are killed one by one by the hungry creatures, they realize that Riddick may be their only hope.

THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK: DARK FURY: In this animated sequel to the hit sci-fi action thriller PITCH BLACK that serves as a story bridge between PITCH BLACK and its sequel feature film CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK - PITCH BLACK, Vin Diesel again stars as Riddick, an escaped convict with special abilities. Here, Riddick, Jack, and Imam face off with a formidable bounty hunter!

THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK: The sequel to cult sci-fi hit PITCH BLACK sees Vin Diesel enthusiastically returning to his role as Richard B. Riddick. Director-writer David Twohy is on board again, building on themes established in the first movie, and expanding his vision with some incredible special effects work. Twohy opens the movie with Riddick on the run from a group of bounty hunters. He escapes them with ease, and then seeks information from an old friend named Inam (Keith David). Inam informs Riddick that he has been singled out by an Air Elemental, Aereon (Judi Dench), as the one man who can stop the evil Necromongers from taking over the Universe. Suddenly, the Necromongers arrive on the planet, causing mayhem and destruction. They capture Riddick. He soon escapes, only to fall into the hands of the bounty hunters he so deftly eluded at the start of the movie. They take Riddick to a rogue prison planet where he is met by scorching heat, an underground penitentiary, and his female companion from PITCH BLACK, Jack (who is now called Kyra, and played by a different actress, Alexa Davalos). They plan their escape from the planet, and vow to bring down the Necromongers. Things don't go according to plan however, leading to a suspense-filled climax to the film, and an eyebrow-raising ending that suggests Twohy may have plans for further installments in the story.

Professional Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times 6 of 10
[Pitch] My suggestion for his next film: an expedition to the seas beneath the ice of Io, where volcanic warmth may have allowed life to occur. Consider the physical properties of a life form that evolves under the tiny gravity of such a moon. It could be amorphous, tenuous and enormous. In sailing a stellar sub through the seas of Io, you might be navigating not toward life, but...through it. What would a human crew do in such a situation? Not get into fights and start chasing one another through the sub, I hope. - Roger Ebert

The London Times 7 of 10
[Chronicles] Mediocre sci-fi is in plentiful supply. The Chronicles of Riddick is the sequel to Pitch Black, which was tight, focused and rather good. The Chronicles, however, is a sprawling mess of future-gothic hysteria, complete with a marauding band of religious fundamentalists called the Necromongers...This planet-hopping thriller takes itself far more seriously than it has any right to do. Leaden dialogue, a baffling array of unnecessary special effects and Thandie Newton playing Lady Macbeth in fetish wear - it's the kind of self-important tosh that makes you want to go and pick a fight with the nearest Furion. Seriously, how hard can he be in his little tight vest? - Wendy Ide
