Vin Diesel Promises Two More Chronicles of Riddick Movies

Chronicles of Riddick

Vin Diesel is definitely the biggest news of the day. Not only did we run his new Fast and Furious trailer, but his other film, Babylon A.D., got an article discussing its problems with Fox. Now we add some more news from the man himself into the mix. Diesel spoke with MTV recently and told them that he is indeed already working on making two more Chronicles of Riddick movies. When that film hit in 2004, it was setup to be a trilogy, but it had a poor run at the box office and now its been 4 years since we've even heard it mentioned again. Diesel is hopeful that it will be back anyway and is working on a script with David Twowy. "Everyone knows I love the Riddick character and I'm always working on it."

David Twowy wrote and directed both The Chronicles of Riddick and Pitch Black and is indeed currently writing two more new scripts. "The only question is whether we take a page from the Lord of the Rings guys and try to shoot the two chapters at the same time. There are two more in mind." As for where it might head, "sooner or later we all end up in the Underverse" is all that Diesel said. This falls in line with a report from 2005 that the second film would head to the Underverse while the third would conclude with a return to Furya, Riddick's home world. This might lead to an epic conclusion, but with a mediocre introduction with Chronicles of Riddick, I don't think anyone will be too excited for another two movies (except for me).

So why does Diesel say it's taking so long if it wasn't the bad box office? "It just takes five years to make another one because David Twohy and I are so precious about it." He's right about that - Pitch Black was released in early 2000 and Chronicles of Riddick was released in mid 2004, almost five years apart. Pitch Black is one of my all-time favorite sci-fi movies that I can always revisit, but Chronicles of Riddick fell apart as a sequel. I really wasn't that entertained and didn't care if they made a trilogy or not. If Twowy can pull of something amazing, though, I'm still interested - because Diesel's Riddick is a character than I can never get enough of, no matter how bad the movie. Thoughts?

dont care what anyone says.. pitch black and the chron rocked. pretty pumped for these movies

sorr on Aug 25, 2008


I enjoyed both movie i dont no what everyones beef with Chronicles of Riddick was i thought it was a great movie, not as good as Pitch Black but still enjoyable. Im all in for Riddicks return been waiting for sometime.

Curits on Aug 25, 2008


Pitch Black was a really cool sci-fi survival horror movie, and Riddick was a decent action movie. If he's gonna play a brooding pissed off guy, I'd rather it be in space with a lot of cool shit going on around him.

DCompose on Aug 25, 2008


YES, I love Richard B Riddick! Man I cant wait, I loved Pitch Black, it was genius, Chronicles was also very cool, the uncut version made it make more sense with the vision of his Furyian heritage etc, yeah it could have been better, but WTF if Steven Spielberg would have had his name on it it would have been a masterpiece but since it was Twothy, it gets a bad rap. Whatever, I think that the Riddick movies outshine some other high profile "sci-fi" directors and writers by leaps and bounds. Even the Video game was cool as shit, I don't even have an Xbox anymore but I have the game still, I should go pick up the PC version for my collection. The cartoon was mildly enjoyable as well, although I think that it was more of an afterthought. I will support these movies to their conclusion and I think Vin Diesel will to no matter what "Hollywood" has to say about it.

Richard on Aug 25, 2008


Uh, Chronicles of Riddick wasn't a prequel lol, did you even watch both movies or are you just talking crap? Chronicles of Riddick took place years AFTER the events of Pitch Black.

Darunia on Aug 25, 2008


Since when Chronicles is a prequel?

Sadhu on Aug 25, 2008


I didn't like Chronicles of Riddick but Pitch Black rocked. Perhaps they need to go back to a smaller scope like PB it almost seems like they over shot it with Chronicles. Although that was a pretty cool way Chronicles ended (open-ended wise) 🙂

Silver on Aug 25, 2008


sweet i can't what! and escape from butcher bay(the game) is a prequel not chronicles.

taylor on Aug 25, 2008


Wooops crap, you guys were right, it was a sequel after Pitch Black... For some odd reason I though I remember hearing that it was a prequel and that's what I had thought in my mind. Sorry - lack of sleep is screwing me up... You guys were right and I fixed it above. 🙂

Alex Billington on Aug 25, 2008


pitch black was a great movie and one of my favorite sci fi's, chronicles fell flat but i think theyll be able to fix their mistakes from chronicles and pull of two badass sequels

harrison on Aug 25, 2008


Can someone tell me what they didn't like about Chronicles? I really liked it.

Richard on Aug 25, 2008


Yeah I agree with #11 What was so bad about it? Did we even see the same movie? The one I watched was insanely badass...

Blake B on Aug 25, 2008


I really enjoyed them. If they can't be made live action, vin should produce some kind of Riddick anime series out of it to finish.

Jesse on Aug 25, 2008


Riddick is a terrible character, I'll pass on these two movies.

Brad on Aug 25, 2008


riddick was awesome. hands down this is one of the greatest characters i've seen, compared to other characters from different genres. forget the box office, once its good and fans love it feel free to make another. forget the critics as well.

Darrin on Aug 25, 2008


Riddick has so many homosexual undertones. Even the name Rid-dick. I'm surprised more people didn't pick up on that from the first one.

Dustyman1505 on Aug 25, 2008


Chronicles may not have been the best movie ever, but I think the visual and artistic design, as well as the fight scenes were absolutely stunning. It may not have had the clearest story, but the direction wasn't bad, the story was alright, and the acting wasn't terrible. I enjoyed it quiet thoroughly. I look forward to the next two films.

Kelley on Aug 25, 2008


yeah I liked Chronicles of Riddick, but I don't know why ppl hate it.

samm on Aug 25, 2008


Chronicles of Riddick is one of my favorite movies of all time. I've never posted on this board, read the site all the time, but I had to comment on this. I absolutely loved Riddick. The scene where he takes on the group of guards is amazing. I have been waiting for this and I'm super excited.

Titus on Aug 25, 2008


Vin Diesel is everywhere these days. Have you guys seen this new animation of him?

Carlos on Aug 25, 2008


Right on. I'm in. Riddick was always my favorite Diesel character. Bring it on, and make it good.

Reverend on Aug 25, 2008


Those who loved Riccdick sure know what SCI-FI films are about. I loved 'Chronicles of Riddick' and the ending was a nod to 'Conan the King'. A feared warrior who sits on the throne. Diesel likes 'D&D' and Conan. 2 more movies. freaking awesome. Hail to the Furion. Diesel & Twohy, you both ROCK!

Shawn Gregory on Aug 25, 2008


I think CoR is very underrated, much like Starship Troopers was. It takes time for some movies to find their place in the pantheon of cinematic greatness, but Chronicles (and PB) are excellent SF movies. Good SF fare is few and far between, so I am looking forward to more Riddick. Visually, there hasn't been a better looking SF film since Blade Runner.

Riddick Rocks on Aug 25, 2008


Pitch Black is absolutely one of my favorite Sci-Fi movies. But what made it so great was the tight core of characters and the chemistry between Diesel and Radha Mitchell. Chronic on the other hand was flat and uninspiring. Most of the characters are half-baked and not very interesting (by most I mean every single one except Riddick and to a lesser extent Thandie Newton). The biggest disappointments were Kyra, who did nothing except whine and get dragged around by Riddick, and Lord Marshal, who is just some pompous and boring middle-aged guy without his Underverse powers. Epic movies that don't take the time to develop the main antagonist always makes for a lame show -- as Darth Vader or the Joker will tell you. Finally they definitely could have gotten someone much younger and hotter than Judi Dench to play Aereon the Elemental, since her role was so minimal and requires very little acting ability anyway. So this is what I want for the next Chronic -- more eye candy, more explanation of the random plot lines, more character development, and a bad guy worthy of Riddick.

Moebius on Aug 25, 2008


I love Pitch Black but Chronicles of Riddick is boring and confusing (because I was never interested enough to follow what was happening). I wish they would make Pitch Black sequels instead. Like...have pirates or something hire or kidnap Riddick and take him back to the bug planet to get them something important from a ship that crash landed on the planet sometime after the events of Pitch Black.

Viper on Aug 25, 2008


Definitely one of my favorite series. Pitch Black was freakin' amazing, CoR was ok but I think they tried a bit too hard with that one. I hope that they're serious and actually go through with making more. If you haven't played the game yet I would suggest you try it.

quigonjames on Aug 26, 2008


I didn't see Pitch Black until TCOR came out and I heard it was a prequel, and I was blown away by Riddick. Went to see TCOR knowing it was a completely different type of film (Not a monster movie, and big budget etc) and liked it, but when it came out on DVD it was much easier to understand because you had the advantage of reading up on the necro mythology and using the Riddick insider feature and other things. It flows really well then, and the Directors Cut is even better! Judi Dench is an absolute legend, and to have her in a film, as well as Colm Feore, Karl Urban and Thandie Newton, with a so-called 'terrible' actor as Vin just shows actually how good he actually is. (Check out some of his earlier stuff if you don't believe me, or try 2006's 'Find Me Guilty'.) I think they (Twohy and Diesel) got too excited about the universe they were creating and got a little carried away, and had no one to rein them in. Hopefully they will on the next production, as I am so excited about this news as I have been waiting for 4 years for an update!

lnu00lc on Aug 26, 2008


Wow you have no idea how excited this makes me!!! Pitch Black and Chronicles are some of my favourite movies, ones that I just grab whenever I need a pick me up. Movies like this really are not aimed at my demographic and I never saw them at the theatre although I have them on DVD. Hopefully the sequels will continue with the arse-kicking Riddick awesomeness!! I dont know why people hate on them so much - my friends think I am nuts.

fotty on Aug 26, 2008


I'm levitating with excitement! The Riddick series is one of my all time favorites probably second only to the Alien series. And I LOVED the Peter Chung animated short Dark Fury! It bridged the gap between Pitch Black and Riddick I very elegantly. The world is ready for Riddick II and so are the fans, bring it on!

happychick on Aug 26, 2008


I am going to agree with everyone...this is a site to discuss movies and our thougths so why does no one ever explain why they hated the first one?! I loved the artistic style of TCOR and the story line. It's really the only movie I like from Disel. He def needs to stay in the Sci-Fi world and stop making Disney movies for kids -.-

Curtis G on Aug 26, 2008


Riddick is the antihero of the new milennium, how could you not want more?!

AV on Aug 26, 2008


I loved both of them. My husband and I are DEFINATELY looking forward to it. Very nice... since when we first heard the trailer for Babylon A.D. it sounded like a Riddick movie and then... wasn't one. 😛

Tiff on Aug 26, 2008


It still amazes me to this day how many people scratch only the surface of some films. Chronicles had an incredible depth and consistency throughout. The attention to detail was astonishing as well as the 'realism' (have you seen many sci-fi movies where someone actually swithced a damn 'hover mode' button?) Little bits and pieces like that added to the immersion factor of the film. Ok it might not be the Citizen Kane of the Sci-fi but who cares? Riddick is a work of love for both Mr. Twowy and mr. Diesel and it shows. I strongly believe that there is a great number of fans out there than just waits for the trilogy to be completed. We will be here to support their efforts.

Kharras on Aug 26, 2008


"Riddick, I thought you said it was clear!" "No, I said it looked clear." "Well how's it look now?" "Looks clear..." Best line ever :o)

Peloquin on Aug 26, 2008


Also remember TCoR also got some of its thunder taken away from the studio exes too, the story was better, more detailed and they were made to make it shorter, less story more action, I dont blame Twothy or Diesel for that, I blame the movie studios, I think this universe is rich and full of greatness.

Richard on Aug 26, 2008


Pitch Black was a beat-perfect sci-fi thriller, and Chronicles was a great actioner ... do we have a war movie coming in these sequels? I hope so. Riddick is a great character - dark, twisted, brutal but with an innate humanity that drives him forwards. With Twowy and Vin both protecting the franchise I'm thoroughly looking forward to the next chapter. Bring on the Underverse!

mrbobbyboy on Aug 26, 2008


HELL YEAH! I love Riddick and I was praying there would be more movies coming out! Chronicles of Riddick and Pitch Black are one of my favorite movies because Riddick is such an awesome character. I don't care what anyone else says, I can watch those movies all the time.

andrew on Aug 26, 2008


It's only right that such a fine actor (possibly, g.o.a.t.) rightfully receive a trilogy for his accomplishments. Naysayers can eat their hearts out. This is Vindication.

BinYe East on Aug 26, 2008


I thought Pitch Black was Awesome, Riddick follow-up was Good but Not Great, but in my opinion the Riddick Character is 1 of the absolute Best Bad Asses in the Universe (without Super Powers). Psyched for the next 2 installments, Good or Bad.

Scully on Aug 26, 2008


He does have superpowers tho, well like Furyian powers lol.

Richard on Aug 26, 2008


Yea man he definitely has super powers...don't you remember the eye shine for a pack of menthol cools :o)

Peloquin on Aug 26, 2008


w00t! Chronicles of Riddick was an amazing sci-fi ride. And they're going to make more! Fantastic. They need to keep the budget decent, however, and not let the franchise go the way Starship Troopers has (direct-to-video).

Rijkaad on Aug 26, 2008


His eyes are not from Menthol Cools, play the video game!

Richard on Aug 26, 2008


Vin Diesel has all the charisma of a dirty ashtray...I cant believe they are going to dump $$$ down the drain on more of this sh*t....

moldybread on Aug 26, 2008


Richard (#43): his eyeshine DOES come from the Menthol Cools... the videogame sequence (where Riddick basically gets his eyeshine given to him by a crazy old preacher) was edited for the sake of gameplay. And remember in PB, when Riddick's talking to Jack? He tells him/her that to get eyeshine like his you need to pay a doctor 20 Menthol Cools, or something to that effect. Also watch the animated short downloadable from the PB website: there's a panel or two where you actually see Riddick hand over the packet of Menthols to the doctor...

AV on Aug 26, 2008


No he visits a doc and the doc stitches him up from being injured and he pays him with KOOLs the shine was from something else: The video game (which serves as a prequel to Pitch Black), clarifies that Riddick's eyeshine is more than just something he picked up in a prison. After helping a character called "Pope Joe" retrieve his "blessed voice box," a radio that picks up religious programming, Riddick goes into a den to get stitches for an injury. After he is finished receiving stitches, Joe tells him how to escape, and, perhaps coincidentally, warns Riddick not to "trust his eyes"; at that moment, a ghostly voice informs him that Riddick has "been blind for far too I'm going to give you a gift ..." It is at this moment that Riddick receives his eyeshine.

Richard on Aug 26, 2008


We watched Pitch Black when I was pregnant with my son in 2001 and loved it and the character name Riddick so a few months later Riddick Jay was born! 🙂 We also liked Chronicles and eventhough I am not a huge action fan I was really into it, I bought the trilody DVD release with the animated movie on it and when my son gets alittle older (is now 6) I'll let him watch them, that would be so cool if he makes two more movies, I really thought that were good and didn't know why it didn't do so great in the theaters, I really wanted to get my hands on a movie poster for my son, but could find one. 🙁 I thought the story line was provoking and it has alot of depth to it not just an action flick.

Shanna on Aug 27, 2008


Have to agree with 99% of you all,,, Riddick kicks ass!! Can't wait for these sequels.

790 on Aug 27, 2008


Chronicles of Riddick absolutely kicked ass. As others have mentioned the attention to detail can truly be seen, just look at the exhaust from the necromonger ships. I really really liked the movie and am very happy to hear that vin is going to do more of the series. I just hope they get enough funding to do it to the same level of quality that they had in C.O.R.

iDavid on Aug 27, 2008


Yeah iDavid, the details in the CGI were Lord of the Ring quality !!! The video game is awesome. Beating it was cool as the enviroments looked real sci-fi at the end. The game play was some of most addictive at the time. Who knew a jail game would be fun.

790 on Aug 27, 2008


These two movies were good but I enjoyed Chronicles more than I did Pitch Black. None the less, here's hoping they do produce more Riddick movies. No more animation movies please.

Stoneaxe on Aug 28, 2008


The thing people forget is that PB was basically a horror fantasy movie where the Chronicles are more in the way of being more sci fantasy. Loads of people went in to see the Chronicles thinking it was going to be another PB. The storyline of the Chronicles rocked and am waiting for the rest of the story!!

Fawn on Aug 30, 2008


I liked all the movies! They didn't really come out the way they should have, but as an avid fan of the storyline, I can not wait for the other movies. I don't understand who didn't like the movies?? I've come across so many people who rant and rave about it non-stop so who are the pople that didn't like it? Actually, what you don't hear is that there is a trilogy DVD set released, but the 3rd movie on that DVD set is a cartoon with Diesel's voice playing Riddick.

RecklessR on Sep 1, 2008


I love Vin Diesel and I thought the Riddick movies were great. I can't wait to see Babylon A.D. (it''s not playing in my town yet). I have been waiting for 4 years for the new Chronicles of Riddick. I can only imagine how adorable his baby is.

Jen on Sep 6, 2008


I enjoyed both movies and would like to see where they go with the next two. Can't resist sci fi and action so I'm sure I'll see atleast one of them or both.

DJ SID on Sep 7, 2008


Diesel should bring the Kira character back, she is/was one hot mama.

Space Dude on Sep 17, 2008


Riddick is one of my all time favorite (anti-)hero characters (of course right up there with Ellen Ripley). Those two together would make some tough kids! I love the Riddick movies, and enjoyed the Riddick sequel. I'm dying for more. Vin Diesel has truly brought that character to life. On a side note, I wish they would bring him back for another Triple X movie. He rivals James Bond in my book, and I consider myself a James Bond fan, as well.

Tyorva on Sep 19, 2008


yea to TCOR it was great . . .. . only complaint I have is ya Kira is hot all right, but the merc lady she was outa this world.... she shoulda been kira

tb on Sep 20, 2008


i cant bloody wait !! the riddick trilogy was my favorite films of all time.i cant boody wait!!!!!!!!

Richard B Riddick on Sep 21, 2008


OMG OMG OMG.. im so pumped for this!!!!! when i read theres gonna be 2 more i was like AHHHH come on!! i don't know what the trouble is about the 2 films pitch black and COR.. thought they where good and i watch loads of films and studied films for over a year in media. They rock and i can't wait for the new ones!

Khris on Sep 23, 2008


After I saw TCoR I was injured in an auto accident and was in a coma for 2 wks then lost in space for another 4. I thought I was on planet Crematoria, I remember an orderly wheeling me around in a wheelchair and telling him "We've got to find Riddick! He can get us out of here" Sort of like the ultimate virtual reality game except I thought it was real. So not surprisingly I've a bit of affection for both PB and TCoR

bendo on Oct 4, 2008


i have been dying to see more of riddick since i heard there was possibly going to be two more movies. yes i'm a chick and yes i would go see them just to see vin but i loved pitch black and chronicles... they are great action movies... so bring on more riddick

BlondeBITCH on Oct 28, 2008


I loved Chronicles of Riddick as much as Pitch Black - just heard about the possible 2 sequels last week from another Riddick fan and am very excited. Most romatic scene of all time - when Riddick douses himself with water, grabs a rope and saves Kyra from getting burned up (steam coming off of his body afterwards!!). I get goose bumps every time I see that scene (have wathced the movie at least 10 times - it is up there with Blade Runner as far as I'm concerned).

PJW on Nov 12, 2008


Two excellent Sci-Fi's - I'm a big fan of the Riddick character and would love two more Chronicles of Riddick... Interesting that each of Riddick's ladies dies... bet Abu 'Imam' al-Walid daughter is fully grown and plays a role in the next feature... She grows up to avenge her father death by the Necromongers! RIDDICK ROCKS! Bring it on... Runner...

Christopher on Nov 13, 2008


I love both of them. Pitch Black is one of my all time favs. I can't wait for more and will be very upset if there isn't.

Danny B. Ready on Nov 18, 2008


Everyone associated with the Riddick movies and stories have done a great job! Diesel and the directors did a great job in developing Riddick, at one point the good guy and at another the bad guy. I usually wait for the DVD, cause I hate going to the Movie House anymore. But, with new movies on the Riddick saga... yeah, I'll make the exceeption. Then I'll buy the DVD's as well. Mike

Mike on Nov 28, 2008


COR was a good SciFi film. Not great, but I enjoyed the plot, action, etc. and would certainly see a second and third installment.

mikech on Nov 29, 2008


We just watched COR over the Thanksgiving break, just love it. Vin looks GREAT in it! 😛 I really wish that Keira hadn't died though. I forgot about Thadie Newton and Judi Dench being in it. Really a good movie. Glad we went with that name for our boy.

Shanna on Dec 1, 2008


its very cool movie both of them pitch black and chronicles and im waiting for the third

alonzo on Dec 4, 2008


okay first of all the chonicles of riddick rocked and so did pitch black and if vin is coming out with more riddick movies he cont on the fact that he has fans who will see the movie. Also i con't wait for these new movies if there coming out. I've been waiting awhile so lets make mves vin and also for those he say the movies suck must have bad taste. next your gonna say something like vin diesel can't act or something. get outta here nobody wants to hear bad not a lot of actors/actresses make a film they came up with and star in it and do a kick ass job with it. SUPPORTING VIN A HUNDRED PERCENT OF THE WAY!!!!!

dominique on Dec 15, 2008


both movies rocked!!! I've been waiting a long time for another chronicle, so hurry up and make the movies!

paulo silva on Dec 16, 2008


Here let me make this easy for everyone to understand... Riddick > Chuck Norris

Solace on Dec 21, 2008


I really am stumped when people say chron tanked because it was a bad film... it tanked because no bugger knew about it! at least not here in the UK. I didnt even know it was on at the cinema, only found it on the dvd release and I love sci fi, I always keep an eye and an ear on the cinema screenings. pitch black and chron were something very different and quite special... So on to the story line in chron, what was so difficult ? an unstopable religion founded by a man who is half in this world and half in the next, seeking to extinguish all life in its region of the universe in order to tip the balance of energy in the universe allowing them to open a door/portal to the underverse, using vastly superior technology and tactics. basically it was the roman empire in space. divide and conquer. its sci fi for crying out loud, not a documentary. I want more of these,

Luc on Dec 24, 2008


pitch black suked greatly .... chronicles of riddick was amazing almost like it was from another planet

danny on Jan 2, 2009


"Remember your favorite game? Who's the better killer? Let's play." "Look at you now. All back-of-the-bus and shit." ahhahah RIDDICK OWNZ and so does Vin Diesel. I hope he makes the next 2 movies soon. Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick are awesome. Great Sci Fi movies.

Frank White on Jan 4, 2009


I gotta say, I love the Riddick movies, I have been hearing about another movie and have been waiting so long to hear anything more. I have heard about a bunch of different situations that they were talking about doing. The one that interested me the most was somehow finding a way to bring Keira (Jack) back... I am not sure, but being sci-fi, I guess the could figure something out. Besides Riddick she was my fav character her and Caroline, from Pitch Black... Vin Diesel does an amazing job with the character, in fact I think It is my favorite role he is in. And I like the way he appreciates his character and tries really hard to make sure it is protrayed the way it should be. Anyway if anyone knows any kind of details about the next two movies I would love to hear about it. Thanks

Stephanie on Jan 9, 2009


Chronicles was better than Pitch Black, in my opinion. I've been waiting for news on the sequels. Hope they can make 'em.

YRG on Jan 10, 2009


Pitch black was ok. But Chronicles is one sweet ass movie. Very well made! Great story, great action. I watch it once a week.

Pass on Jan 16, 2009


its was obvious the movies were to come out since the remake of Escape from Butcher Bay is coming out with the release of Assault on dark athena for the PC xbox and ps3. i cant wait!

Donvergon on Jan 29, 2009


i have been wanting more, waiting for more...

sara on Feb 3, 2009


Pitch Black was OK but Cron rocked!! One of my fav movies of all time.

Spitfire on Feb 7, 2009


Adding my vote to everyone elses, I really want to know more! Love both Pitch Black and Chronicles. Hoping that there is at least another movie coming...

Man on Feb 8, 2009


I've been waiting for this movie forever. COR was a financial flop though. I've been concerned that this would never happen. Vin Diesel has been dropping hints for like 5 years. I can't imagine why anyone would pick these up unless they absolutely SLASH the budget. Which I'm okay with. It will force the writers/directors into an uncomfortable position where they will have to come up with more creative ways to tell compelling stories. COR overshot on the production level and came across kind of cheap. If thye riegn it in to a Pitch Black level, it could be something special. It'll probably never happen though. Hopefully, I'm wrong.

chris on Feb 19, 2009


I'm a sci-fi and horror junkie. I LOVE these movies! Vin and Riddick turn me on. I never buy movies, but I had to special order and hunt for these. I don't normally watch something more than once, I have nearly worn both DVDs out. I can't wait for the new movies! I will buy them too.

inez on Mar 1, 2009


The Chronicles of Riddick was one of the best sci-fi movies i have seen! One of my all time fav.'s!! When i first saw the movie, i wasnt aware that it was a sequel to Pitch Black. (I dont know where my head was!) i just thought it was an EXCELLENT movie! Then i realized it was a sequel to Pitch Black. I was surprised that anyone would make a sequel to that piece of trash of a movie. Pitch Black was terrible, unimaginitive, boring, poorly acted, sucky crap movie. The only thing GOOD about Pitch Black was the Riddick characther. You didnt know whether he was a good guy or not, whether you could trust him or not. His character was great, but the movie SUCKED MY BUTT!! The Chronicles of Riddick made Pitch Black look like a bad move. The Chronicles of Riddick ROCKS MY WORLD!

Alison Caylor on Mar 17, 2009


i didn't realize Chronicles was a sequel to Pitch black at first either until my husband said hey this seems familiar, but pitch black scared the crap out of me i thought it was an ok movie the characters were great i love Jack and the priest and of course riddick those creepy flying at night things not so much. Chronicles is a total kick ass movie, vin even turned down xxx to do this sequel and i'm so glad he did it was amazing, no matter what else is on if that movies is on we have to watch it or recorded that's one of my top 10 movies easy and i can watch it over again and again although i was dissappointed when they killed Jack cause she was like his way of dealing with humanity she was everything to him and for such a tough guy it was nice to see that relationship. if they make a new chronicles i cant wait to see it i think this character is Vin's best character it's so raw and dirty and kind of forget you this is about me attitude he's hard core and i love it. it's what a movie is supposed to be an escape to make you think what if life was like that. 2 thumbs up!!

vin fan on Apr 1, 2009

pitch black was the shit, i loved riddick's character there..but i don't see how you can follow it up with a pg-13 movie...riddick is a badass, where he goes carnage and masses of ass kickery should follow..i didn't like the chronicles..but if they go back to a hardcore riddick i'm all about it..not a pg-13 pussified version..i'd see it no matter what..but i hope they don't dumb riddick down like they did with chronicles.

These two movies are a must for the conclusion of Riddick's life for the series.

George J. on Jun 14, 2009


i dont care what anyone else says, the chronicles of riddick and pitch black movies are the all time best movies EVER. i personally watch both of these movies on almost a monthly basis and still cant get enough of them, i have goosebumps just thinking about the return of riddick in another installment of this series let alone 2 more installments. i cant wait.I hope it wont be to much longer, the suspence is killing me

ya this article was made a year ago almost, and still no word on it. im getting impatient lol. its been 5 years now, what he said he wanted, now come out with it!!! i loved the series. CoR wasnt the best acting ever (aside from Diesel) or plot, but i still enjoyed it. and i just wish they would make it more of a priority

THEY have to makeanother film or two i liked all there films but the cartoon one wast a bit shrot i thought but good still i would love to see another film

I LOVE The Chronicles of Riddick. Vin's body is amazing in that movie, the story line is good and the graphics are equally as amazing. It is one of my favorite movies to watch again and again and I cannot wait for another one to come out. I am also not normally a fan of scifi but this one hits the mark for me.

Vin Fan on Sep 18, 2009


#16? ok.......Rid-dick........what did you wanna call him......Bart. Everything, everywhere is gona have undertones of something, about something, as for homosexual.....he doesn't strike me very gay......but like some of us......its an asumption, i dont recall offically hearing/reading, though it would be an interesting to see what would come of it. "GAY BAD GUY SAVES THE UNIVERSE, READ ALL ABOUT IT"...Smile

How could u say that nobody will be interested,my thought is tht everyone will be excited as I am to see where Riddick has ended up bec I think that those two movies were Amazing in fact I'm watchin chronnicles right now which had me wonderin if there was going to be anymore bec it's due time for another one. Even though the cgi was good in the previous movies I hope and think that they will take it to a new level... It is takin too long for them to produce it hurryyyyy!!!!!!

Riddick fan on Mar 20, 2010


I don't care what anyone says, we own Pitch Black & Chronicles of Riddick, and they are both amazing! My fiancee will be heartbroken if Gin Diesel doesn't return as Riddick to finish off the story! Please.....??......

AussieGal2010 on Nov 26, 2010


chronicles of riddick is one of the best sifi movies ive ever seen, from pitch black too the sequal chronicles of riddick i loved the movies, and i am REALLY excited to know that there will be two more movies... this story Needs and ending.. come back as riddick vin diesel.. you have to for your fans sake!

Troy on Jan 2, 2011


I am impatiently waiting for the next Riddick movie. Off your ass & on your feet as they say. Box Office or not. I want more!

Lynn Allen on Jan 19, 2011


Fuck Riddick. Check out what he says about Fast Five in his interview . Can't wait:

Richard Masters on Apr 13, 2011


FAF is a much better franchise than Riddick anyway! check out Vin's new interview-it's gonna be intense

Richard Masters on Apr 15, 2011


i personally cannot wait until more "riddick" material is available . i really dug "pitch black" and "chronicles of riddick", and mr. diesel is very easy on the eyes as well. i saw "pitch black" twice in the theater due to an infatuation i still have with those light refracting eyes. the sooner the better, although i understand  that the writers and producers cannot rush "perfection" and so i will wait, patiently.  

arianne on May 14, 2011


and p.s.  patience IS virtue. it'll be worth the wait.

arianne on May 14, 2011


cant wait for the new movies

w1ck 2 da 3rd on May 14, 2011


Pitch Black was great.   Chronicles was OK. It gets better every time I see it. Here is the problem with  Chronicles, in Pitch Black. Riddick constanly put his ability to see in the dark to use. He rarely, if ever did that in Chronicles.

Wavnet on May 17, 2011


I would love to see two more parts come out. I had never heard of the chronicles of riddick until I bought the used tape at a video store. I found it to be one of the best sci-fis J have ever seen, and I am a big sci-fi buff. I can only imagine that it was not well promoted, if I had not heard of it before I did. I will be watching for it now. I have watched c of r about 50 times, and still like to watch it. 

nohandsbob on May 18, 2011


The theatric release of Chronicles sucked, because they took all the metaphysical stuff out. The director's cut is awesome! 

Jaedreth on Jun 6, 2011


loved both movies. cant wait for an upcoming Riddick movie.

Noori on Jul 2, 2011


uhh, everyone knows there are 3 movies right? pitch, fury, and chronicles..

justsayin. on Aug 5, 2011


I thought both movies kicked butt.... I was pissed that his sexy side kick had to die at the end...

Pauldickmanning on Sep 6, 2011


Oh and fury is a stupid cartoon... They shouldn't have done a cartoon....

Pauldickmanning on Sep 6, 2011


Make another man I really liked

Fifotron on Oct 5, 2011


Keep making riddick movies!!!!!

Ortizslim253 on Nov 27, 2011


So like Riddick ended on the Throne, right? What is next?

Chrystal_daniels on Dec 8, 2011


The second one kicked ass, what are you talking about

Xtracrispy101 on Dec 12, 2011


I loved both films and i cant wait for the next one, i was so excited when i found out they were planning to do another film last year i've been waiting for it ever since!

Vikki on Dec 16, 2011


I hope to see two more movies about this character. It was a good story and I thought if nothing else. The chronicles of riddick had and has the best kill scene ever at the end. Could definitely use another dagger in the head with a knee to the face.

Blaze Burford on Feb 3, 2012


They need to make more because I love there movies and I don't care what anyone says and if anyone hates them then watch it again
