Pitch Black

Before The Chronicles of Riddick expanded the universe of Vin Diesel's marauding anti-hero, this 2000 sci-fi thriller from writer/director David Twohy introduced the muscle-bound, see-in-the-dark character in a well-crafted, bare-bones thriller about a downed spaceship and the efforts of its remaining crew and passengers to survive. Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser and Keith David are among the still living who must reluctantly team up with Riddick, a convict who was being transferred, to fend off killer, flying hammerhead shark-like creatures of the night.
