Stargate: The Ark of Truth made its world premiere on DVD on March 11 in North America, but fans in the UK will be seeing the movie broadcast first on television before it makes its DVD release.
Sky One will be showing the movie twice this coming week. The lastest entry in the online version of the broadcaster’s schedule indicates that the movie will premiere on March 24 at 8pm (there has been some confusion about the time, since earlier reports had the movie starting at 9pm). Also, there will be a repeat on March 26 at 8pm. Sky One HD will also be showing the movie at those times.
The broadcaster’s description of the movie: “This feature-length follow-up to the action-packed series sees the SG-1 team embark on their deadliest mission yet. With the fate of Earth hanging in the balance, will they succeed?”
The DVD for Region 2 has a scheduled release date of April 28 (originally was April 14).
The next events for the movie are the screenings in Australia at the Supanova convention on March 28 in Melbourne and April 4 in Brisbane. Representing Stargate will be Teryl Rothery (Dr. Janet Fraiser) and Jewel Staite (Dr. Jennifer Keller).
