'Pitch Black' Getting 4K Ultra HD Release This Summer from Arrow Video


Earlier today, Arrow Video revealed their August 2020 titles, among them was David Twohy's horror/sci-fi movie Pitch Black that introduced us to Vin Diesel‘s Richard B. Riddick, which will also be the label's first-ever foray into 4K Ultra HD territory!


Arrow brings the sleeper hit that birthed a franchise and launched Diesel's career to 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray in the UK on August 17th and in the US and Canada on August 18th, 2020.


When an intergalactic transport ship crashes on a remote desert planet with no sign of help on the horizon, the survivors, led by Fry (Radha Mitchell), band together to find a way back home. Among the passengers is Riddick (Diesel), a convicted murderer being transported by marshal Johns (Cole Hauser) – and now freed of his chains and on the loose. But as a solar eclipse plunges the planet into total darkness, a threat even worse than Riddick reveals itself, and the last humans standing may have to form an uneasy truce with the cunning fugitive (whose eyes have been surgically altered to see in the dark) to last the long night.


Boasting crackerjack direction and a whip-smart script by Twohy, as well as a star-making performance by Diesel, Riddick’s first outing is freshly unleashed in an illuminating, brand new 4K restoration, with hours of exclusive bonus content.
