Pitch Black sequel to open across the UK & Ireland on August 27th.

Details just in from UIP for the sequel to Pitch Black.

It is a dark time in the universe.

Planet after planet is falling to an unholy army of Necromongers - conquering warriors who offer ravaged worlds a simple choice - convert or die. Those who refuse their rule hope in vain for someone or something that will slow the spread of Necromongers.

But rebels are short-lived and saviors, it seems, are in short supply. When things get bad, weary survivors turn to myths for comfort-murmured prophecies, vain hopes, legends of good vanquishing evil. But good isn't always the antidote to evil and legends can be wrong. Sometimes the only way to stop evil is not with good - but with another kind of evil.

Featuring an ensemble cast under writer/director David Twohy, the science-fiction action-adventure, THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK, expands the story pf cult anti-hero Riddick, with Vin Diesel reprising his role from Twohy's cult hit Pitch Black.

The film is produced by Scott Kroope and Vin Diesel, with Ted Field, George Zakk and David Womark serving as executive producers. The cast includes: Alexa Davalos, Thandie Newton, Karl Urban, Colm Feore, Linus Roache, Keith David, Yorick van Wageningen, Nick Chinlund and Judi Dench.
