Stargate: Continuum Interviews

Brad Wright, Ben Browder, Jewel Staite and Rachel Lutrell on the film.
by IGN Staff

Australia, August 13, 2008 - Continuum, the straight-to-DVD Stargate
film that's out now on DVD and Blu-ray, is much more than just an
extended episode. It was an opportunity for the show's writers and
producers to really explore their universe and characters, and to do
things that simply wouldn't be possible in a normal episode. The end
result is impressive - a complexly plotted time travel tale with great
pace and real heart.

IGN AU was lucky enough to spend some time chatting about the film
with writer/producer Brad Wright, as well as Ben Browder (Colonel
Cameron Mitchell), Jewel Staite (Dr Jennifer Keller) and Rachel
Lutrell (Teyla Emmagan).

Running time: 6 mins 30 secs

Exclusive Summer Glau interview

The Sarah Connor Chronicles – the TV spin-off of the Terminator films – has been a huge hit in the US and the UK, and a second series is being produced right now. But if you can’t wait for that, then the DVD of season one is now out on DVD from Warner Home Video, for £29.99. And here we have an exclusive interview with Summer Glau, who plays cyborg Cameron in the series.

What attracted you to the role of Cameron Phillips, a robot?
Summer Glau: Josh Friedman, the creator of the show. I never thought I would be able to play this role until I talked to him about it and got his point of view on a different kind of terminator. But I’d wanted to work with him for a long time, he’s a great director too and he directed some of the episodes.


It must be a challenge as an actor to play a robot. How did you find that?
Summer Glau: Well, I was lost in the beginning because in my work so far I’ve played really vulnerable characters. Really raw and emotional, that’s what comes naturally to me. So I was worried about making a robot relatable and I wanted people to care about her and be able to put themselves in her place because that’s what we all do when we watch TV.

But Josh’s idea for a Terminator was different – in the movies, Terminator’s evolve and become more advanced and sophisticated, you have the ones that liquefy, others that shape-shift. That’s cool, but for TV and for a character with longevity, Josh had the idea of making her more advanced because of her human characteristics. Instead of shape-shifting and knives coming out of her fingers, it was much more interesting that she could appear so human...

Sanctuary - Zap2It: Fall TV Premieres

From Zap2It:



Sanctuary - Sci Fi

Premieres: Friday, Oct. 3
Airs: Fridays at 10 p.m.

Stars: Amanda Tapping, Emilie Ullerup, Robin Dunne

What's It All About? Amanda Tapping stars as Dr. Helen Magnus, a 157-year-old "terrologist," one who studies monsters. Along with her team, she befriends creatures that have evolved from mankind and gives them a safe haven in which to live. Of course, not all monsters want a sanctuary, and the most dangerous need to be disposed of. The series is shot extensively on green screen -- like the movie "Sin City" -- allowing creators to immerse their characters in imaginary and detailed worlds. A prequel of sorts aired in a number of short webisodes (still available at YouTube.com). Though these had the same cast and concept, creator Damian Kindler ("Stargate") promises the TV series will have more humor -- something notably lacking in the webisodes -— as well as brighter sets and more backstory for the main characters. Kindler calls it a "reboot of the concept" and adds, "It's brand-new and different and reimagined and in a really cool way, so we're excited to see how the people that saw the first iteration react to the even bigger, shinier version."

~~**~~**

NOTE: Sanctuary's premiere is Oct. 3 and begins at 9pm as it is a two-hour premiere. The following week, on October 10, Stargate Atlantis moves to 9pm and Sanctuary takes the 10pm time slot on the SciFi Channel (US).
