Sci Fi will keep the Stargate TV franchise soaring with the premieres of two films on back-to-back Fridays.
Stargate:The Ark of Truth and Stargate: Continuum, both of which have taken their runs in the DVD market, will make their U.S TV premieres on March 27 and April 3, respectively. Both movies will bow at 9 p.m. (ET).
The movie launches follow the Jan. 8 finish of Stargate SG-1 series spinoff Stargate Atlantis. A production of an Atlantis film for DVD and Sci Fi is set to enter production, while a third SG-1 movie is in the works.
Stargate: The Ark of Truth picks up after "Unending," the SG-1 series finale. Searching for an ancient weapon that could help them defeat the sinister Ori force, SG-1 discovers it could be in the Ori's own home galaxy, and the crew finds themselves fighting two powerful enemies. The film stars series favorites Amanda Tapping, Beau Bridges, Michael Shanks, Ben Browder, Christopher Judge and Claudia Black.
Stargate: Continuum has members of SG-1 returning to a world where their history has been dramatically altered. Continuum reunites Richard Dean Anderson as Jack O'Neill, with all the series favorite crewmembers. Claiming to be the most northern-filmed movie production ever, it features incredible visual effects, battle sequences and breathtaking vistas captured on Arctic ice.
