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.
Alexa Davalos modeled Kyra partly after Amy Lee, the lead singer of the Grammy-winning Goth rock group Evanecense.
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 ...
While Running through the Canyons of Crematoria the second time Kyra yells, "Riddick," her lips don't move

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).
