One of the better turn-of-the-century sci-fi films has got to be Pitch Black. The film stars Vin Diesel as Richard B. Riddick — a wanted convict who escapes when the transport ship that’s carrying him crashes on a deadly planet.
The front of the SteelBook case features Riddick and the back a closeup of his trademark goggles that protect his surgically-enhanced eyes. The inside of the case shows the landscape of the planet with 3 suns and the nests of the flesh-eating creatures that only come out in darkness.
Pitch Black on Blu-ray is presented at 1080p in 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio. The English soundtrack is provided in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, with French, Italian, German, Spanish in DTS Surround 5.1. Subtitles are offered in English SDH, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Swedish
Bonus features include feature commentary, U-Control, Raveworld Pitch Black Event, and more.
The film, of course, has been released several times on Blu-ray including bundled with The Chronicles of Riddick in The Riddick Collection. But, if you’re a SteelBook collector and fan of Vin Diesel films Best Buy is selling the edition for $14.99. The SteelBook is scheduled to release in the US on May 14, 2019 (already available in the UK).
