RIDDICK, the unrated Director’s Cut
Some of you have been asking for dish on this new cut of RIDDICK, available now on iTunes and dropping January 14 on DVD. Well, the Director’s Cut is probably 8-9 minutes longer than the theatrical version. The bulk of that time comes in two areas — several new scenes in the flashback sequence that shows how Riddick’s tenure on the Necromonger throne was a troubled and dangerous one (this includes a lot more of Karl Urban), and a new coda that sees Riddick returning to the Necro armada to seek out Vaako, the man he believes double-crossed him. All told, we probably created 50 new VFX shots just for this extended cut.
BTW, I hate the cover art for RIDDICK: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION. Someone should’ve run it by me first.
