The wanted criminal Richard Bruno Riddick (Vin Diesel) arrives on a planet called Helion Prime and finds himself up against an invading empire called the Necromongers, an army that plans to convert or kill all humans in the universe.
Alexa Davalos (Kyra) appeared opposite Radha Mitchell, who played Carolyn Fry in Pitch Black (2000), in Feast of Love (2007).
They are an army unlike any other... crusading across the stars toward a place called UnderVerse, their promised land - a constellation of dark new worlds. Necromongers, they're called. And if they cannot convert you, they will kill you. Leading ...
A surface with a 700F surface, would not have shade cool enough to safely stand in. Even the underground prison would be uninhabitable. Also parts of the ground would be molten.
The closing credits are displayed over extreme close-ups of elaborate Necromonger sculpture. Eventually the sculpture is revealed to be a statue of Riddick sitting in the Lord Marshall's throne.
The theatrical release was edited to achieve an MPAA Rating of "PG-13" instead of "R". The Unrated Director's Cut on DVD restores the violent scenes and adds more character development (including the addition of a character that was not seen in the theatrical release).
