Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.
Vin Diesel wanted the movie to be shot on 35mm film, but due to the film's low budget paired with a large number of visual effect shots, the movie had to be shot digitally. As a compromise, David Twohy added a subtle film grain effect throughout the film.
Don't know how many times I've been crossed off the list and left for dead. Guess when it first happens the day you were born, you're gonna lose count. So this, this ain't nothing new.
In the opening sequence a pterodactyl-type creature (with a ferocious beak/bite) pecks at Riddick's fingers. However, after 5(?) bites, the fingers are undamaged.
