The Chronicles of Riddick is a 2004 American science fiction film which follows the adventures of Richard B. Riddick, as he attempts to elude capture after the events depicted in the 2000 film Pitch Black, and details his meeting with Jack and Imam, his escape from the prison planet Crematoria, and his battle with the Necromonger fleet. Directed by David Twohy (Pitch Black), the film stars Vin Diesel (reprising his role as Riddick, also co-producer), Karl Urban, Alexa Davalos, Thandie Newton, Colm Feore, with Judi Dench, and Keith David (reprising his role as Imam from Pitch Black).
After the release of the film, The Chronicles of Riddick became the brand name of the series. Despite not doing especially well on cinema the film has been hugely successful on DVD and has gained a cult following.
Famous quotes containing the word chronicles:
“Will you see the players well bestowed? Do you hear, let them
be well used, for they are the abstracts and brief chronicles of the time. After your death you were better have a bad epitaph than their ill report while you live.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
