‘Stargate Atlantis’ Fans Choice Blu-ray Arrives Aug. 410 Jul, 2009 By: John Latchem
MGM and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will release what it is calling the only Stargate Atlantis Blu-ray Disc Aug. 4.
Stargate Atlantis: Fans Choice ($29.99) will contain two episodes selected by a fan vote: the pilot episode, “Rising,” and the series finale, “Enemy at the Gates.” The episodes will be presented in 1080p high-definition, and the disc will contain the extended version of “Enemy at the Gates” that was released in the recent fifth-season DVD set.
Earlier this year, “Stargate” fans had a chance to log onto www.SGAfanschoice.com to select their favorite episodes. More than 20,000 votes were cast, and once the results were announced, fans were given a chance to design box art, which was selected by “Stargate Atlantis” producers and again voted on by the fans.
MGM’s announcement indicated this is the only high-definition release planned for “Stargate Atlantis.”
