About Pitch Black
When a passenger ship of 40 crash lands on a desert planet, the handful of survivors find themselves stranded on a barren wasteland with three scorching suns and an escaped convict, Riddick (Vin Diesel). In search of shelter and water, the survivors band together only to discover that nightfall brings with it swarms of giant carnivorous monsters that can be repelled only by light. Riddick and the passengers must come to trust each other if they are to escape the planet with their lives. Suspenseful, imaginative, and visually stunning, director David Twohy's film brings new intelligence to the sci-fi genre, launching the career of superstar Vin Diesel.
