Did you miss Riddick in theaters? Seems like it came and went rather quickly. Or, even if you did catch it in theaters, are you so jazzed to see it again that you just can't wait for that January Blu-ray release date? Fear not! Universal has announced that Riddick will be available for digital download (the legal type) over multiple platforms in December.
This seems like a nothing story on the surface, until you take note of the novelty of this release structure. Normally, the pre-release VOD release is reserved for smaller, independent films. It's odd to see a big studio movie adopting this model. That being said, if this boosts home release sales enough to secure another sequel, I'm all for it.
What do you guys think?
