From Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and MGM Home Entertainment and award-winning producers Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper, ‘Stargate: Continuum’ debuts exclusively on DVD and high definition Blu-ray disc from 6th August 2008.

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,” Stargate: Continuum reunites Richard Dean Anderson as Jack O’Neill, with series favorites Ben Browder, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Claudia Black, Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy Award-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 story

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.
