Pitch Black 4K Blu-ray Special Edition Hits In August From Arrow Video

Pitch Black is one of the best sci-fi films of the '90s and helped introduce the world to Vin Diesel. Arrow Video is releasing the movie on 4K Blu-ray in August, sporting multiple cuts of the film and tons and tons of special features. Both the theatrical and director's cuts of the film will be available to watch in 4K, and commentaries with cast and crew will be there. New interviews with the Pitch Black cast minus Diesel are present, although he is all over the special features we have seen before. Even the anime short The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury is included, and that has its own set of special features. The first pressings will also include a booklet with essays and archival interviews. Check out the brand new cover for the release and the full list of special features below.
