Fans of Vin Diesel and the sinister anti-hero Riddick he embodied have had to make do with unattractive alternatives when it came to » Pitch Black — Planet of Darkness «. Until now, you either had to make compromises in terms of quality or do without a German soundtrack if you didn’t just want to experience the first chapter of David Twohy’s «Riddick» saga in the well-known theatrical version, but in the extended Director’s Cut. From next week, the iconic sci-fi action game will finally be available without any compromises.
«Pitch Black» will be released on May 13, 2022 for the first time as a director’s cut including a German soundtrack — in 4K. Turbine Medien is releasing the sci-fi cult film with Vin Diesel in two variants as the Ultimate Edition: Version A is limited to 2,222 pieces, and version B is only available to 1,111 pieces.:
» «Pitch Black» Ultimate Edition A at Turbine *
» «Pitch Black» Ultimate Edition B at Turbine *
The two editions, which are available exclusively in Turbine’s in-house shop, only differ (apart from the number of copies) in their cover and design. Other than that, both sets come with the same extras — and not short of them.
«Pitch Black» in the Director’s Cut: Not just longer
The director’s cut of «Pitch Black» runs almost four minutes longer than the theatrical version, in which the story and characters get a little more flesh on the bones — but that’s far from all. The special thing about the new edition is that the long version is completely synchronized for the first time. For the additional scenes, Diesel’s original voice actor, Martin Kessler, was even brought back in front of the mic. In addition to the optimized picture in 4K, you can also expect a brand new Dolby Atmos soundtrack. This means: Not only the longer version of the film awaits you for the first time, but also in better picture and sound quality.
