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.

    I’m looking forward to the Director’s Cut and I hope that you’ll get to do the next story (Underverse!) within the next two years or so 🙂

    The Director’s Cut was indeed excellent – well done!
    The new ending placing us at the Threshold to the UnderVerse was especially awesome to see after all these years.

    Looking forward to RIDDICK: UnderVerse, hopefully sooner rather than later!

    I already have my own copy of the movie on Blu-Ray and absolutely loved the director’s cut version of the movie, so here’s so hoping that the next entry will come soon.

    The Director’s is cool (Only 8 minutes 🙁 ). But the French version have a big problem they change the voice of Riddick, a big mistake. I don’t understand that choice, the french dubbing is very good In Pitch Black, Chronicles and Dark Fury, why change ? Do you have a role in the dubbing in another country ?

      too bad the director’s cut version missed out on a commentary track, because I would’ve loved to hear David Twohy and a couple of the actors talk about their thoughts throughout the movie (much like how they did with the extended cut of “Chronicles”)
