"The Chronicles of Riddick" (with no subtitle) is the actual name of this film, though Universal has chosen to use it as an overall brand name for anything starring the character Riddick. Consequently, the 2004 re-release of Pitch Black was retitled The Chronicles of Riddick: Pitch Black on the case (though the on-screen title remained the same) and the video game prequel/spin off was called The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay.



The plot to The Chronicles of Riddick follows up on some of the plot lines from Pitch Black.

Five years after the events of Pitch Black, a 4-person group of bounty hunters, led by Toombs (Nick Chinlund), are on the trail of Richard B. Riddick on the frozen planet of U.V.6. After boarding the ship, Riddick tells Toombs he made three mistakes:

  1. He took the job.
  2. He came light: a 4-man crew is insulting.
  3. Having an empty gun rack.

Riddick discovers that Toombs was paid 1.5 million by a private party from Helion Prime. Riddick throws Toombs out of the ship and heads to Helion Prime, and there's only one person who could have betrayed him: Imam, whom he saved long ago.

Imam, working with Aereon (an ambassador from the mysterious and rarefied race known as the Elementals) reveals his reasons for seeking Riddick. The Necromongers (a.k.a. "World Enders") are poised to attack Imam's planet, Helion Prime (a.k.a. "New Mecca"). The bounty was put on him to draw him back to Helion Prime and fight for them. Aereon believes that Riddick, a Furyan, can rebalance the universe against the Necromongers.

It is from Imam that Riddick learns where Jack (a.k.a. Kyra) can be found: Crematoria. While, presumably, leaving to seek Kyra, Helion Prime is attacked by Necromongers.

The Necromongers are a patriarchal warlike race seeking to convert, violently if necessary, the universe to their faith while on a journey to the Underverse, a constellation of Dark new worlds. They see life as antagonistic to the "natural state" (human life is spontaneous outbreak; an unguided mistake) to which they seek to correct by converting others to the Necromonger faith. The Purifier tries to convince the people of Helion Prime of this, but most are unwilling to convert, that is until the Lord Marshal pulls out one man's soul.

Riddick shows up to the gathering to seek the Necromonger that killed Imam. It is after the fight that Riddick and Lord Marshal meet, though it seems as if it were not the first time, and takes Riddick to the Quasi-Deads. Before the Quasi-Deads, Lord Marshal (and others including the Purifier) learn that Riddick is a Furyan: a warrior race massacred by none other than the Necromongers. During Riddick's escape from their ship, he is caught by Toombs, but this time with a 5-man crew (one of whom is a woman). Riddick craftily steers Toombs to Crematoria to seek bounty payment.
