Plot

[edit]

V years subsequently Kyra’s death, Riddick has get uneasy in his role as Lord Marshal of the Necromonger armada. His refusal to swear into the Necromonger faith has caused dissent amongst his subjects. Later the latest effort on his life, Riddick strikes a deal with Commander Vaako: the location of Furya and a transport to take him at that place, in exchange for Vaako succeeding him as the side by side Lord Align, then that he can reach transcendence. Led past Vaako’s aide, Krone, Riddick and a grouping of Necromongers make it on a desolate planet. Realizing that it is not Furya, Riddick kills near of his escort when they try to assassinate him; Krone causes a landslide and buries Riddick alive.

Riddick emerges from the rubble with a cleaved leg, which he sets and splints while fending off native predators: vulture-like flying animals, packs of jackal-similar beasts and behemothic venomous scorpion-similar water-abode Mud Demons. Needing fourth dimension to heal, Riddick hides himself within some abased ruins. Later he’s fully healed, Riddick notices a vast savanna beyond some rocky cliffs, but the merely passage through is impeded by several muddy pools infested with Mud Demons. He begins injecting himself with Mud Demon venom to build an amnesty and constructs improvised melee weapons, also equally raising and grooming an orphaned jackal-beast pup. He kills the Mud Demons and reaches the savanna. Afterwards finding a dormant mercenary station, Riddick notices a series of budgeted storms, and concludes they will unleash an unidentified threat. Riddick activates an emergency beacon at the station, which broadcasts his identity to mercenary groups inside the area.

Two ships arrive in answer to the beacon, the commencement led by violent and unstable Santana, with 2nd-in-command Diaz, preacher Luna and hunters Falco, Rubio, Vargas and Nuñez. The second, a team of professional person mercenaries: leader Colonel R. “Boss” Johns, second-in-command and marksman Dahl, tracker Lockspur and gunner Moss. Riddick leaves them a message promising they volition all die unless they leave i of their ships and depart the planet on the other. Rubio, Nuñez and Falco are killed by Riddick during the first night, forcing a reluctant Santana to cooperate with Johns’ team. Riddick later steals power nodes from each of the teams’ ships and approaches Johns and Santana to strike a deal for their return. However, the conversation turns into an deadfall as Dahl shoots Riddick with several rounds of horse tranquilizer, and Riddick’due south jackal-beast is shot and killed by Santana.

At the station, Johns interrogates Riddick almost the fate of his son, William. When the storms reach the station, Riddick’s threat is revealed as thousands of Mud Demons emerge from hibernation hugger-mugger, awakened by the rainwater, and besiege the station, killing Lockspur and Moss. Johns agrees to release Riddick to locate the hidden power cells, simply Santana attempts to kill Riddick because he is worth more dead than alive, and because Riddick promised to kill Santana if set gratuitous. Riddick, with 1 leg costless, beheads Santana with his ain machete. The group and so releases Riddick on the condition he retrieve the nodes and each party gets a send.

They fight their way to the ships, and Vargas is killed by a Mud Demon. Johns, Diaz and Riddick leave the ship together on the hoverbikes to retrieve the ability nodes. During their journey, Diaz crashes Johns’ bike over an embankment; Johns is then picked up by Riddick. After they reach the power nodes, Riddick reveals Johns’ son’s morphine addiction and attempt to use a child as bait. Diaz attacks Riddick and Johns but Riddick fights and kills him; as Diaz dies he shoots and disables the last hoverbike.

Riddick and Johns fend off an endless horde of Mud Demons while running back to the station. Riddick is severely wounded and Johns takes both nodes and abandons him. Riddick begins to fight the advancing Demons and climbs a rock spire; when it seems he is about to be killed, Johns arrives in a repowered ship and shoots the creatures while Dahl descends to rescue Riddick. Given the other ship, Riddick praises Johns for being a improve man than his son and departs into deep space.

Development

[edit]

Rumors of a third film in the
Chronicles of Riddick
series had circulated since 2006.[4]
At first, Twohy assumed that the film would exist an contained, low-upkeep production, rather than being released past Universal Studios as the other films in the series had been.[five]
Despite the second motion-picture show’s tepid reception, Diesel and Twohy remained optimistic almost a third film, pushing information technology toward completion. “Everyone knows I beloved the Riddick graphic symbol and I’m always working on it,” Diesel asserted. “It just takes 5 years to brand some other one because David Twohy and I are so precise about it.”[vi]
In 2006, Diesel agreed to make a cameo in Universal’south flick
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
in substitution for the buying to the rights to the
Riddick
franchise and character.[seven]
Over the side by side four years, Diesel periodically posted information on his own Facebook page updating fans on the film’s progress. In November 2009, shortly after Twohy had finished the script, he announced that pre-production work was underway.[eight]

In April 2010, a review of the
Riddick
screenplay (it was then subtitled “Expressionless Human being Stalking”) appeared on the Coming Attractions website. “Complimentary from the constraints of delivering a PG-13 movie, the dialogue in
Expressionless Man Stalking
is more than suited to a moving-picture show like
Training Twenty-four hour period; the mercs we meet are hard-living people, not those washout fakeout infinite mercs from a film like
Alien: Resurrection“, wrote reviewer Patrick Sauriol.[9]
On February 9, 2010, Diesel confirmed in an update on his Facebook page that 1 of the locations used in the upcoming sequel would be the White Desert in Farafra, Arab republic of egypt. He mentioned the terrain features, unique to the surface area, would lend to the off-planet atmosphere of the film.[10]
On March 13, 2011, Diesel released a video on his official Facebook folio in which he and Director David Twohy talk nigh the proposed third movie. They reaffirmed that the movie will be rated ‘R’, similar the first one (Pitch Black), a priority for them, and they plan to shoot it lean and quickly.[11]

In September 2011, it was announced that Karl Urban would reprise his role equally Vaako from
The Chronicles of Riddick.[12]
In January 2012, it was appear that Katee Sackhoff and Matt Nable had also joined the cast.[thirteen]
Since they did not have plenty money to shoot the movie in its entirety, Diesel had to mortgage his house, obtain loans and spend most of his personal coin on the production of the movie, “I had to leverage my business firm,” Diesel said. “If nosotros didn’t terminate the film, I would be homeless.”[14]

Riddick
would practice the fox”.[19]
Tom Huddleston of
Fourth dimension Out
gave the film two out of five stars, saying “It’due south flavourless: the aliens are unscary and easily despatched, Vin’s too silent to exist interesting, and the other characters are either dull or offensive”.[xx]
Scott Foundas of
Multifariousness
gave the picture show a positive review, saying “An improbable merely very enjoyable sequel that recaptures much of the stripped-down intensity of Diesel fuel and managing director David Twohy’south franchise starter
Pitch Blackness.”[21]

Riddick
s considerable personal mythology”.[22]
Keith Staskiewicz of
Entertainment Weekly
