What would be in the interest of preventing an otherwise formidable instance without the means.

I was kind of disappointed in the relatively low success the Chronicles of Riddick had. I thought the picture was exceptionally well written. One thing about it, upon re-watching it, man -- it's dark.
I wonder how much Warhammer 40K influenced Chronicles? Dune is a clear influence on both works.
But man, that movie does not let up. No robots show up and say funny things. There's no soldiers cracking wise under pressure. And although I don't mind that, I suspect that grimdark does bad things to profitability in a movie -- especially a big-budget wide release.
