Arrow Video has detailed the release of The Chronicles Of Riddick (2004) on 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray. The newly-restored film approved by Director/Writer David Twohy arrives on September 17, 2024 in 3-disc Limited Editions available in both disc formats.

The 3-disc 4k Limited Edition includes three 4k Blu-rays; one with the Original Theatrical Cut (with Dolby Atmos), the second with the Director’s Cut (5.1), and the third with the Theatrical Cut in the alternate 1.78:1 aspect ratio (Limited Edition Exclusive). All versions feature 4k (2160p) resolution with Dolby Vision/HDR10.

The 3-disc 2k Limited Edition follows the same format, except in 1080p resolution and without HDR. It’s worth noting, however, that the Theatrical Version of the film on 2k Blu-ray does include a Dolby Atmos remix. And, the third 2k Blu-ray features the alternate 1.78:1 aspect ratio.

The Chronicles Of Riddick (2004) 3-disc Limited Edition (MSRP: $49.99) is available from Amazon and Arrow Video.

Arrow Video previously released Pitch Black (2000) on 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray in 2020.
