Vin Diesel

The Chronicles of Riddick Limited Edition

£24.99

Released: 16th September 2024. Following the sleeper success of their breakthrough sci-fi/horror smash Pitch Black, writer-director David Twohy and star Vin Diesel reunited for 2004’s action-packed The Chronicles of Riddick, an expansive and ambitious sequel that took their eponymous antihero to the farthest reaches of the galaxy. Riddick (Diesel) is an intergalactic fugitive whose dark past catches up with him when he is lured out of hiding by Imam (Keith David, The Thing), another survivor of the planet of horrors they barely escaped from five years earlier. Now out of the shadows, Riddick is identified by an ethereal emissary (Academy Award winner Dame Judi Dench) as the descendant of an ancient race of warriors who may be the universe’s last hope against the Necromongers, an evil army of fanatics intent on bending the world to their will. As enemies close in on all sides, including the ruthless Lord Marshal (Colm Feore, Thor) and his scheming lieutenant Vaako (Karl Urban, The Boys), Riddick finds himself a reluctant saviour of the cosmos, with only his razor-sharp wits and cunning killer instinct standing in the way of total annihilation. At long last, Twohy and Diesel’s hard-hitting outer-space epic has been restored in glorious 4K, with hours of incisive bonus features exploring every detail of this densely-constructed and masterfully-executed mythology. 4K ULTRA HD LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS Brand new 4K restorations by Arrow Films of the Theatrical and Director's Cuts of the film, approved by David Twohy Original DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround audio on both cuts, plus remixed Dolby Atmos for the Theatrical Cut Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing on both cuts Reversible sleeve featuring newly commissioned artwork by Dan Mumford Illustrated collectors' booklet featuring new writing on the film by Walter Chaw, original production notes and the ‘Chronicles Compendium’, an overview of the characters and planets featured in the film DISC ONE 4K (2160p) UHD Blu-ray presentation in Dolby Vision (HDR10 compatible) of the Theatrical Cut from the original negative Ambition on Another Scale: Chronicling a Blockbuster Sequel, a brand-new feature-length documentary on the film, featuring interviews with interviews with writer-director David Twohy, actors Keith David and Linus Roache, storyboard artist Brian Murray, concept artist Matt Codd, miniature effects artist Ian Hunter and digital matte artist Dylan Cole Realizing Riddick, a new interview with Twohy on the creation of the character Back to Black, a new interview with Murray on his continuing work within the Riddick saga Chronicles of a Cult Film Celebrity, a new interview with David on the role of Imam Theatrical trailers DISC TWO 4K (2160p) UHD Blu-ray presentation in Dolby Vision (HDR10 compatible) of the Director’s Cut Archive audio commentary by David Twohy and Vin Diesel Archive audio commentary by Twohy and co-stars Karl Urban and Alexa Davelos Archive introduction by Twohy Creation of New Mecca, an archive featurette focusing on the world and characters of Helion Prime Riddick Rises, an archive featurette focusing on the prison planet of Crematoria Keep What You Kill, an archive featurette focusing on the world of the Necromongers Visual Effects Revealed, an archive featurette focusing on the VFX Interactive Production Calendar, a series of short, candid videos filmed throughout shooting Production Vignettes, a series of short behind-the-scenes segments Three deleted scenes Virtual Guide to the Chronicles of Riddick, a series of short animated segments explaining the world of the film Toombs’ Chase Log, a short film narrated by Nick Chinlund in character A guided tour of the set by Vin Diesel, along with 360-degree panoramic views of eight sets from the film On-set interviews with Twohy, Diesel, Dench, Urban, Colm Feore, Alexa Davelos, Thandie Newton and producer Scott Kroopf Promotional interviews with Twohy, Diesel, Newton, Urban, Davelos and Feore Easter egg DISC THREE (LIMITED EDITION EXCLUSIVE) 4K (2160p) UHD Blu-ray presentation in Dolby Vision (HDR10 compatible) of the Theatrical Cut in the alternate 1.78:1 aspect ratio Escape from Butcher Bay, a compilation of cutscenes from the acclaimed tie-in video game The Lowdown, a television special produced to promote the film’s original release
