The Chronicles of Riddick saga overview
The Chronicles of Riddick is a science fiction franchise, spanning from movies, videos games, animation, and motion comics. The series chronicles the anti-hero Richard B. Riddick (Vin Diesel) life in the 28th century. The Saga created “Pitch Black” was release, and gained popularity in 2004.

That is no pun intended toward the second movie and his escape from Crematoria when water is literally steaming off his body. Plus his deep and extremely commanding voice is perfect for the action filled script. Riddick really is the main character through everything because this saga is his life. Although, others surface, resurface all having a creepy back story to go along with.
Set in the extremely distant future, the commercial space transport vessel "Hunter-Gratzner" carrying 40 people on-board crashes on a desert planet when struck in a meteor storm. There are only 8 survivors, the pilot Carolyn Fry (becomes captain since ship's captain is killed), bounty hunter William J. Johns, religious man Abu Al-Walid, Antiques dealer Paris P. Ogilvie, runaway teenager Jack, settlers John 'Zeke' Ezekiel and his lover Sharon 'Shazza' Montgomery, and Richard B. Riddick (Vin Diesel). Marooned, the survivors discover the barren and hot desert-scape has sunlight from three suns. Not only must they find food and water and worry about Riddick, the survivors find themselves being hunted by the planet's flesh-eating alien inhabitants. According to the geological equipment abandoned on the planet, every 22 years the planet engulfs in darkness which releases the ravenous breed and they just...
