Scheduled to open in theaters on September 6th is Riddick, which was written/directed by David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway) and stars Vin Diesel (Fast Five) in the title role. The film marks the third installment in the popular sic-fi series following Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, respectively. In addition to the return of Diesel, the movie also stars series newcomers Karl Urban (Dredd), Katee Sackhoff (TV's Battlestar Galactica), David Batista (The Man with the Iron Fists), and Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall).

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down with actresses Katee Sackhoff and Emily Alyn Lind to discuss their work on The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia, which opens in theaters on February 1st. Philbrick also had a chance to ask Sackhoff about her role in the upcoming Riddick, as well as her thoughts on the legacy of Battlestar Galactica. While we will run our conversation with the actresses about The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia closer to the film's release date, we wanted to let you know now what Sackhoff had to say about Riddick and Battlestar Galactica. The fan-favorite actress discussed Riddick, her role, working with writer/director David Twohy and star Vin Diesel, being the only actress on set surrounded by men, possibly having a fight scene with Diesel, shooting guns, Battlestar Galactica, and if she ever gets sick of fans calling her "Starbuck."

Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick (Diesel) 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.  

Riddick is scheduled for release on September 6th.
