Vin Diesel returns to the larger-than-life role that made him a global superstar as Riddick (read our review) blasts its way onto Blu-ray Combo Pack including Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD with UltraViolet on January 14, 2014, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

The third feature film installment of the blockbuster series returns to its hardcore action roots with an all-new, no-holds-barred adventure from writer and director David Twohy, creator of the hit franchise. While there’s an entire new level of cheese to the film, Riddick is so incredibly entertaining. I strongly advice you guys to watch the opening ten minutes, and then pick it up when available next Tuesday.

Debuting an Unrated Director’s Cut with even more intense, heart-pounding sequences not shown in theaters and an alternate ending, the Blu-ray Combo Pack includes bonus features that reveal the behind-the-scenes secrets of the heart-stopping thriller’s incredible cast, uniquely talented crew and cutthroat characters. In addition, Riddick will be available in a new collection that includes all three movies in the groundbreaking franchise: Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick and Riddick plus The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury from Emmy Award-Winning animator, Peter Chung (“Æon Flux”).

Global action-superstar Vin Diesel reprises his breakthrough role in Riddick, the much-anticipated new chapter in the epic adventures of the most wanted man in the universe. The all-new thriller finds the title character trapped on a sun-scorched planet and pursued by ruthless bounty hunters eager to collect the reward for Riddick’s capture—dead or alive. Savage alien creatures, expansive desert landscapes, monster storms, jet hogs and an arsenal of futuristic weaponry make this the most exhilarating episode to date in writer and director David Twohy’s breathtaking series of futuristic blockbusters.

In an electrifying return to his signature role, Diesel heads up an internationally acclaimed cast that includes Karl Urban (Star Trek franchise), Katee Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”), Jordi Mollà (Columbiana), WWE superstar Dave Bautista (upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy), Noah Danby (“Defiance”), Danny Blanco Hall (Immortals), Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall), Matt Nable (Killer Elite), Raoul Trujillo (Apocalypto), Conrad Pla (Immortals), Neil Napier (White House Down), Nolan Gerard Funk (“Aliens in America”) and two-time Grammy Award nominee Keri Lynn Hilson.

    I’ll express my thoughts and feelings for this movie this way.

    1. Not as good as the first.
    2. Better then the second.
    3. Still a whole lot of fun.

    4. Please?

    I’m not sharing the same optimistic opinion on this one…
    I was kinda let down.. again..
    what made Pitch Black so great was the triangle of Vin Diesil,Cole Hauser and Rhada Mitchell and the unknown hero or villian factor that kept you guessing in PB..great chemistry and strong pool of characters…
    this film was a step up from Chronicles and tried to mimic PB but fell kinda short..
    Oh and the ending.??? badddd!!!

      @mobstar67, for what it’s worth, i hear on the extended cut it has a new and supposedly better ending. i haven’t seen the extended cut yet so i can’t confirm if it’s a better ending or not.

      • mobstar67

        thank heaven for extended cuts then…
        i promise i am not exaggerating that this may have been one of the worst endings ever… my jaw hit the floor with this ridiculous ending….

    why did the dad of johns. look younger. also i understand the reason why riddick was doing the stuff he was doing. he felt he went soft and try to re become the animal he use to be. i understand that. but pretty much to me it was just a re skin pitch black

    Awesome? I loved Pitch Black. Really loved Pitch Black but hated the second movie. This one looked promising. More like the first so I was really excited to see it but I didn’t get past the first hour. I tried so so hard to enjoy it but it just got to a point where I decided nothing could save it. So I gave up on it. I tried to stick with it. And then tried again… but the effects are terrible in places and I got bored. Disappointed. Again.
