Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past.
Veteran-turned-mercenary Toorop takes the high-risk job of escorting a woman from Russia to America. Little does he know that she is host to an organism that a cult wants to harvest in order to produce a genetically modified Messiah.
The wanted criminal Richard Bruno Riddick (Vin Diesel) arrives on a planet called Helion Prime and finds himself up against an invading empire called the Necromongers, an army that plans to convert or kill all humans in the universe.
Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) comes out of self-imposed exile, thought to be long dead, and is set on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora's Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments.Written by
The airplane that is used as a mobile base of operations, is a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III. See more »
When Jane Marke is presenting the airplane to Xander Cage, she claims that the airplane has been modified to "have enough fuel to circumnavigate the Earth three times without landing".
The airplane is a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III, which originally has a maximum fuel range of ~11 000 km, if it's (more or less) empty(this number is halved if there is any payload). To do this, the airplane needs ~134 500L of fuel. If it is going to circumnavigate the earth three times(~120 225km), it would require ~1,5 million liters of fuel, more than 10 times the original capacity. If they actually did add this amount of fuel (and fuel tanks) to the airplane, the airplane would have a takeoff weight of 132 000 metric tonnes, which is ~5 times max takeoff weight, and 1700 times the payload for the C-17.
Another point to this, is that the C-17 Globemaster III is capable of Air to Air refueling, meaning that they can, at least when it comes to fuel, fly indefinitely as long as they get AtA refuels. See more »
You know how I came up with the idea for the Triple-X program? Skateboards and swimming pools.

Complete waste of time - too much glorification of Xander Cage
There is no story build up in this movie - and the action scenes are unbelievable ~ aka too many bulls#it and impossible unrealistic sequence. The "glorification of Xander Cage" is way too arrogant to a point that your passion and interest for the character simply fades away.
After the movie, I have less respect for the character that Vin Diesel plays. If you are the type that likes to watch the action sequences; you might enjoy this.
