MGM Greenlights New Stargate Movies

Studio Continues Record Breaking Franchise by Releasing �Stargate: The Ark of Truth� and �Stargate: Continuum�

LOS ANGELES -- Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM) announced today the extension of the hit �Stargate SG-1� franchise with two movies based on the popular series. Titled �Stargate: The Ark of Truth� and �Stargate: Continuum�, the movies will both be made available to the television universe and home entertainment marketplace by MGM. The announcement was made by Charles Cohen, Senior Executive Vice President, MGM.

"`Stargate SG-1' is to MGM Television what the �James Bond,� �Pink Panther� and the �Rocky� franchises are to our feature film unit," said Cohen. "We are committed to continuing to release new SG-1 content and its `Stargate Atlantis' spin-off, and we're also steadfast in our dedication to extending the franchise. �Stargate� is an indelible brand for MGM and we will support it well into the future."

With its high quality production values, long-term stability in the show's leadership and strong chemistry between the lead actors in the series, all of whom have big audience appeal, �Stargate SG-1� is the longest-running science-fiction series in U.S. TV history. The series has a strong worldwide fan base and can be seen in over 120 countries. �Stargate SG-1� cast members Ben Browder, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Claudia Black and Michael Shanks are confirmed to star in both movies. Written and produced by Brad Wright and Robert Cooper, the new movies will feature the latest visual and sound effects, providing viewers with a theatrical movie-going experience.

In the first movie, �Stargate: The Ark of Truth� will bring a conclusion to the primary storyline of the past two seasons of the SG-1 television series. More thrills and action-packed scenes are planned for this special event movie, which will be directed by Cooper. The suspense will end as fans will see the conclusion of the epic Ori saga.

In the second movie, �Stargate: Continuum� the SG-1 team is now free to embark on new and exciting adventures throughout the endless Stargate universe.

Below are the synopses for the new �Stargate� movies:

"Stargate: The Ark of Truth"

As SG-1 searches for an Ancient artifact which they hope can defeat the armies of the Ori, they learn more Ori ships are about to be sent through the supergate to launch a final assault on Earth. Daniel discovers that the artifact, the Ark of Truth, may be in the Ori home galaxy, and SG-1 embarks aboard the Odyssey to find it, and pre-empt the attack. The IOA has a plan of their own and SG-1 ends up in a distant galaxy fighting two powerful enemies.

"Stargate: Continuum"

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. As they try to convince the authorities what's happened, a fleet of goa'uld motherships arrives in orbit, led by Ba'al, his queen, Katesh, (Vala) and his first prime, Teal'c. SG-1 must find the Stargate and set things right before the world is enslaved by the goa'uld.
