David Twohy‘s Riddick starred Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Matthew Nable, and Dave Bautista, Jordi Mollà, Bokeem Woodbine, Nolan Gerard Funk, Raoul Trujillo, Antoinette Kalaj, Keri Hilson, Noah Danby, Neil Napier, and Conrad Pla.
Riddick‘s plot synopsis: “The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.
The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.”
On Katee Sackoff from Riddick:
Sci-Fabulous Katee Sackhoff
We shine the spotlight on the Sci-Fi Queen of Riddick, available on Blu-ray January 14!
For many sci-fi fans, Katee Sackhoff is a household name of this exciting genre., but you don’t have to be a sci-fi fan to know this woman is a force to watch.
The all-new thriller finds the title character trapped on a sun-scorched planet and pursued by ruthless bounty hunters eager to collect the reward for Riddick’s capture—dead or alive. Savage alien creatures, expansive desert landscapes, monster storms, jet hogs and an arsenal of futuristic weaponry make this the most exhilarating episode to date in writer and director David Twohy’s breathtaking series of futuristic blockbusters.
In celebration of the Blu-ray release of Riddick, we shine the spotlight on some of our favorite roles from Katee Sackhoff.
1) Dahl- Riddick
While her name might be pronounced ‘doll’, she’s anything but sweet in this role. Sackhoff has said Dahl is probably the strongest character she’s ever played.
2) Capt. Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrice- Battlestar Galactica
Before playing the role of a sniper in Riddick, fans most enjoyed Katee’s work as Capt. Starbuck in the SyFy network series Battlestar Galactica.. For four seasons, she played Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrice, a pilot and warrior.
3) Herself- The Big Bang Theory
This may be her best role of all, a cameo in Howard’s fantasy. Katee guest stars on two episodes helping our nerdy hero muster up courage to propose to his girlfriend, Bernadette. Bernadette said no to the proposal but what better wingwoman is there for any sci-fi nerd than Katee.
4) Detective Sara Essen & Bo-Katan – Batman: Year 1 & Star Wars: The Clone Wars
As if there is more reason to note that she’s a standout, she also lends her voice to the live animation classics like Batman, and Star Wars, opposite the Breaking Bad mastermind, Bryan Cranston.
