Necromongers - Islam in the movies?

The mainstream media has pandered to islam for many years, including and especially Hollywood. One particular movie brings islam to mind, but I think it's wholly unintentional: The Chronicles of Riddick.

The 2004 film starring Vin Diesel is about a conquering race: the Necromongers, who are systematically sweeping the universe and converting everyone to their dark religion. Either convert, or die.

"They are an army unlike any other... crusading across the stars toward a place called UnderVerse, their promised land - a constellation of dark new worlds. Necromongers, they're called. And if they cannot convert you, they will kill you."

- a line from Aereon, played by Dame Judy Densch.

Interestingly enough, there is an act in the city of 'New Mecca', where the Necromongers attack and kill many, kidnap and convert the rest.

Is it me, or does this sound amazingly like "The Religion of Peace"?

Of course, hollywood would never admit this, or if they thought the parallels were too great, wouldn't have allowed the movie to be released for fear of 'insulting' their arab comrades.
