June 1st, 2011: Pitch Black (2000)

Cast and Crew: David Twohy (Director, Co-Writer); Jim and Ken Wheat (Writers); Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser, Keith David, Claudia Black

What It’s About: When a space transport crashes on  a sun-baked, desert planet, the ten survivors think their biggest problem is Riddick (Vin Diesel), a convict that the transport was carrying, but when the planet’s three sons go into an eclipse, an event that happens only every 22 years, the creatures that dwell underground come out, and Riddick may be their only hope to survive. 

Why Watch it Today?: There is a solar eclipse today.  Pitch Black is a solid B-movie with a fun cast and a playful attitude towards genre conventions.

Where to Get ItPublic libraries, iTunes, Netflix (Rental only) or Amazon
