NEW PITCH BLACK IDEAS
Universal?s marketing department seems to be working overtime. And some slick ideas are coming out of their meetings.
Hot on the heels of making ? a no doubt ultimately successful ? a direct to disc prequel to the forthcoming ?Van Helsing?, the studio has also made a ?Riddick? cartoon for the direct to video market.
According to DavisDVD, ?The Chronicles of Riddick : Dark Fury?, will be released in the UK on June 15th.
Animated Bliss ? via Pitch Blacker - says the voice cast of the film include Vin Diesel, Keith David, Rhiana Griffith, and Nick Chinlund. The Director is Peter Chung
Meantime, Universal are also taking a leaf out of the whole ?Raiders? turned ?Indiana Jones and the Raiders..? book by re-releasing the original ?Pitch Black? under the title, ?The Chronicles of Riddick : Pitch Black?. Due out June 1st, the disc will be available in R-Rated and Uncut Director?s cut versions and will most likely include commentaries, featurettes and a preview of the new prequel film.
