‘Riddick’ Racks Up $900K at Thursday Box Office

“Riddick” got a jump on the weekend, racking up roughly $900,000 at late night and midnight showings on Thursday, according to studio estimates.

The third film in Vin Diesel’s trilogy about a highly trained killer with the ability to see in the dark opened at 1,800 theaters.
