Stargate: Continuum debuts exclusively on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc, July 29th. In this adrenaline-driven, action adventure, members of SG-1 find themselves returning to a world where their history has been dramatically altered. Continuing the legacy of “Stargate SG-1,” the longest-running, scripted, made-for television series in U.S. broadcasting history, Stargate: Continuum reunites Richard Dean Anderson as Jack O’Neill, with series favorites Ben Browder, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Claudia Black, Golden Globe(R) winner and three-time Emmy Award(R)-winning actor, Beau Bridges and Michael Shanks as Daniel Jackson.
The most northerly-filmed movie production in history, filmed partly in the Arctic, Stargate: Continuum is the most ambitious Stargate production yet, featuring incredible visual effects, out-of-this-world battle sequences and breathtaking scenes shot on the Arctic ice.
According to Producer Brad Wright, “We’ve got nuclear submarines, F-15’s and the bone fide arctic circle. Add our fabulous cast, including Beau Bridges, William Devane and Richard Dean Anderson and you’ve got yourselves a movie.”
Stargate: Continuum, also being considered for the Guinness Book of World Records for “Most Northerly Film Shoot”, is packed with a host of all-new bonus content on DVD and Blu-Ray, including feature-length audio commentary with Producer/Writer Brad Wright and Director Martin Wood, as well as three featurettes. Delving into the extraordinary making of Stargate: Continuum, the featurettes explore how the US military provided assistance, such as a Navy nuclear submarine and F-15 fighter jets from the Air Force, what it was like shooting in the Arctic, and how science and science fiction collide.
The only series ever to receive the United States Air Force Seal of Approval, “Stargate SG-1” also boasts four Saturn Awards, two Gemini(R) Awards, nine Leo(R) Awards, eight Emmy(R) nominations and three Visual Effects Society nominations. Stargate: Continuum will be available for the suggested retail price of $26.98 U.S./$37.98 Canada. The Blu-Ray release is priced at $39.98 U.S./$49.98 Canada. Pre-book is July 2.
MGM Home Entertainment will support the Stargate: Continuum DVD release with a massive marketing and media campaign targeting the key demographic, encompassing network and cable television advertising, integrated online and viral promotions and select brand partnerships. The release will also be supported by a comprehensive publicity campaign, highlighted by cast participation and news generating events and stunts timed to Comic-Con 2008.
While SG-1 attends the execution of Ba’al, the last of the Goa’uld System Lords, Teal’c and Vala inexplicably disappear into thin air. Carter, Daniel and Mitchell race back to a world where history has been changed: the Stargate program has been erased from the timeline. The remaining SG-1 members must find the Stargate and set things right before they world is enslaved by the Goa’uld.
