Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that Riddick, the third Riddick movie, will be heading to Blu-ray on January 14, 2014. The Unrated Director’s Cut Blu-ray Combo Pack will include the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.

Riddick creator David Twohy once again returns as writer and director, with Vin Diesel reprising his role as the most wanted man in the universe. As a wanted man, Riddick is tailed by merciless bounty hunters in a desert planet. Riddick was already rated R in theaters, so that means that this cut is going to be even more hardcore. The Blu-ray will also include an alternate ending and behind-the-scenes video with the cast and crew.

Here are the Blu-ray exclusives:

  • The Twohy Touch – This featurette has David Twohy talking about the process of the film.
  • Riddickian Tech – This feature talks about the special effects used for the movie including practical and green screen.
  • The World Of Riddick – The crew talks about the inspiration and influences of the world of Riddick.

Here are the rest of the features:

  • Vin’s Riddick – Vin Diesel, the cast and crew tell us about Diesel’s passion and how it helped the movie’s production and pre-production, plus the training Diesel went through to become Riddick.
  • Meet The Mercs – This featurette highlights the supporting cast in the film including Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Mollà, Dave Bautista, Bokeem Woodbine, and Nolan Gerard Funk.
  • Riddick: Blindsided – Want to find out what happened to Riddick between The Chronicles of Riddick and Riddick? This motion comic prequel will explain it all.

If you’re hankering for a collection that includes all three movies (Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick, Riddick), then you’re in luck. The Riddick collection will include all three movies, plus the animated movie, The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury, from Peter Chung (Æon Flux).

But, if you want to watch Riddick before then, you can get it via Digital HD on December 17, 2013.
