PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
The wanted criminal Riddick 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.
In the scene where Toombs discusses where he should take Riddick in custody he mentions Butcher Bay. This is a reference to the video game The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay (2004). In this game Riddick escapes that prison.
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 ...
After Riddick is left on Crematoria by the Necromongers he takes shelter in a garage. Because the planet is quite obviously devoid of any humidity at all, the thin atmosphere does not transmit heat. Therefore, all shade on the planet, including the "night side" (the half of the planet that is in its own shadow) is much cooler. A similar effect can be seen in desert areas of Earth. Ironically, the extremes mentioned mean that the garage actually would require heating of its own to keep the occupants alive.
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.
