Riddick, the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000’s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx).  Diesel reprises his role as the antihero

Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

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 mercenaries, 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.

She compares those characters connection and how they relate to her personal life. This issue is now available on newsstands and below are some highlights:

On what she loves about Olivia Pope in Scandal:

In her professional life, she is so powerful and is this self-made woman…But in [Olivia’s] personal life, she is a mess and I kind of love that…I love that I get to embody all of that complexity because I also think it takes a certain level of progress for us to have a Black Woman that powerful be an emotional mess on television.

On the connection between Olivia and Broomhilda:

[Olivia] is the answer to Broomhilda’s prayers…I’m grateful that these two women on opposite ends of history, on opposite ends of their experience, both strong women but in such different ways, can exist at the same time.
