was released on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Riddick
is the third film in the franchise (following Pitch Black
and The Chronicles of Riddick
) that follow the adventures and ordeals of the title character, played by Vin Diesel.
At the end of the last film, Riddick was the new Lord Marshall of the Necromongers after defeating their leader. However with a wish to return to Furya, he makes a deal with Vaako (Karl Urban) for him to help him reach the planet. Unsurprisingly, Riddick's betrayed.
Riddick finds himself stranded on a sun-scorched planet, and needing a way to escape he announces his arrival at a mercenary station by activating an emergency beacon, prompting two groups of mercs to go after him for the bounty on his head. The mercs aren't his only problems though, as the approaching storm is waking up some nasty alien predators.
Can Riddick convince the mercs to work with him to survive or will he have to trick them and follow his own agenda? As a connection to his past emerges, Riddick must decide how best to play his cards in order to make it off of the planet alive.
