MGM and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment July 29 (prebook July 2) release the second direct-to-video movie sequel to the “Stargate SG-1” TV show.
Stargate: Continuum debuts on DVD at $26.98 and Blu-ray Disc at $39.98. The film chronicles the effort of the SG-1 team to restore the timeline after an enemy uses time travel to ensure the Stargate program never existed.
Extras include commentary by executive producer/writer Brad Wright and director Martin Wood, a making-of featurette, a “Stargate Goes to the Arctic” featurette, and the featurette “The Layman's Guide to Time Travel.”
The first “Stargate” DTV movie, The Ark of Truth, debuted in March and finished in the top 20 on the sales charts its first two weeks in stores.
“Continuum is more of a standalone movie to prove to MGM and the world that we can make a whole bunch of these,” Wright said.
The release comes one week after San Diego Comic-Con International 2008, where the film will be heavily promoted, according to MGM.
