It is the beginning of the Stargate franchise. It was originally intended as the first of a trilogy of films, but creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin were distracted by Independence Day. Instead, it inspired the television series Stargate SG-1, which concluded its ten-year run in 2007, as well as its spin-off, Stargate Atlantis, and a poorly-received animated series Stargate Infinity (not considered canon). Two straight-to-DVD Stargate SG-1 movies are being filmed as of 2007. See Stargate for more about this science fictional universe.

Plot

In Egypt, Giza, 1928, a colossal coverstone is uncovered, which houses a stone ring underneath it. The expedition commissioner’s daughter takes an amulet inscribed with the wadjet of Ra from a work table at the site. For other uses, see Ra (disambiguation). ...


In the present day, Egyptologist Daniel Jackson is approached at a symposium by an old woman wearing the Ra necklace and is offered the chance to translate Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs that may prove his theories that the pyramids weren't built in the 4th Dynasty. Curious, Jackson accepts before being given tickets to an Air Force installation. The Fourth dynasty of Egypt was the second of the four dynasties considered forming the Old Kingdom. ...


At a U.S. military installation inside Creek Mountain, Colorado, Jackson meets the old woman, who introduces herself as Catherine Langford. Jackson correctly translates the hieroglyphs on the coverstones, which reads: "A million years into the sky is Ra, Sun God. Sealed and buried for all time, his Stargate." Formerly retired Air Force Colonel Jonathan “Jack” O'Neil then arrives to take command of the project and declares all information regarding it classified.


Jackson makes an accidental breakthrough after noticing that star constellations on a newspaper are identical to the symbols on the coverstone. Later at a meeting, Jackson reveals his findings and theorizes that the constellations on the coverstones are coordinates for a location within space, while the seventh symbol represents "a point of origin".


The stone ring, identified as the Stargate, is revealed to Jackson, who identifies the seventh symbol after looking at the symbols on the Stargate. The seven symbols are then entered into the Stargate, which opens a wormhole. A probe is sent through the Stargate and is tracked to a location in the “Kalium Galaxy” on a planet on the other side of the universe. The probe sends back images on the planet it is on before the wormhole disconnects. The images sent by the probe reveal that the world it was sent to has an atmosphere similar to Earth and that the Stargate on that planet has a different set of symbols on it, making a return to Earth impossible unless the symbols on the other Stargate are translated. Jackson convinces the military to send a team through the Stargate and let him go with them, as he will be able to translate the symbols on the other Stargate. A typical depiction of a Milky Way Stargate Stargate is one name for a class of fictional devices which allow instantaneous travel between places. ... For other uses, see Wormhole (disambiguation). ...


O’Neil leads a team to go through the Stargate. Langford gives Jackson the necklace she picked up in 1928 as a good luck charm. The Stargate is reactivated and the team, including Jackson, goes through it. On the other side, the team finds themselves inside a pyramid which they exit to reach outside. After Jackson reveals he can’t dial home without the coordinates for Earth, O’Neil orders the team to set up base camp and returns to the pyramid to assemble a hydrogen bomb. Outside, Daniel notices tracks and follows them back to a domesticated alien beast, a Mastadge,[1] only to get caught in its reins and dragged off to a nearby village where humans are mining, with some of the team following. The team approaches the villagers, who assume them to be gods sent by Ra and bow before them. O’Neil tries to offer friendship to a boy named Skaara, but in fear, the boy runs off to get his father Kasuf, the tribe’s leader. The team is forced to stay in the city after a sandstorm hits it. At the base camp, the other members of the team head into the pyramid for shelter. For other meanings, see pyramid (disambiguation). ... The mushroom cloud of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki, Japan, in 1945 lifted nuclear fallout some 18 km (60,000 feet) above the epicenter. ...


Jackson attempts to communicate with the locals by writing, but discovers that this practice is forbidden. A young woman, Sha'uri, is presented to him as a gift. Sha’uri shows Jackson a cave full of hieroglyphs after he attempts to communicate with her. Jackson learns that the language of the people is a dialect of Ancient Egyptian, which he can fluently understand due to his background.


Meanwhile, a huge pyramidal craft lands directly on top of the pyramid. The team members still inside the pyramid are attacked and captured by an unknown entity.


In the city, O’Neil locates Jackson, who manages to translate the hieroglyphs. The hieroglyphs reveal that the Egyptian god Ra was actually an alien, the last of his kind, who was attempting to extend his own life. Ra traveled to Earth and encountered humans, who he enslaved with his advanced technology. Ra used a young boy as a host body and appointed himself ruler of Earth. Humans were transported from Egypt to the other planet through the Stargate and used to mine the mineral on which all of Ra’s technology is based, including the Stargate. The humans on Earth rebelled when they discovered Ra was not a god and buried the Stargate. Fearing the same thing would happen on this planet, Ra outlawed reading and writing to prevent the humans there from learning the truth. After explaining this to the others, the team locates a center stone similar to the coverstone on Earth that has symbols from the other Stargate on it, with the seventh symbol eroded away. O’Neil then orders the team to return to the pyramid.


The team leaves the city the next day to return to the pyramid and Skaara and his friends secretly follow them. Going back inside the pyramid, now housing the pyramidal craft on top of it, the team is attacked by a creature modeled after the Egyptian god Horus. O’Neil notices that the bomb has disappeared. Suddenly, nine rings descend from the ceiling and deposit two Horus creatures and an Anubis creature, which promptly capture O’Neil and Jackson, who are taken into the pyramidal craft. For other uses, see Horus (disambiguation). ... For other uses, see Anubis (disambiguation). ...


O’Neil and Jackson are escorted to the throne room, where they meet Ra, who reveals he has the hydrogen bomb. O’Neil attempts to disarm the guards and kill Ra. Jackson is shot and killed in the resulting firefight. O’Neil relents when Ra uses his children workers as a human shield. After his surrender, he is thrown into a dungeon with the captured team members. Jackson is regenerated with the same sarcophagus Ra uses to revitalize his host body. Jackson then returns to the throne room, where Ra reveals that he intends to send the bomb, with its destructive capability enhanced by the mineral, through the Stargate in retaliation for the rebellion on Earth. Ra states that he will kill Jackson and everyone who has seen him unless Jackson kills the rest of the team to show the people that he is their one true god.


In the city, Sha'uri reveals to her fellow people the translated hieroglyphs and the truth behind Ra and that they should not live as slaves anymore. However, the people don’t believe her.


The people in the city gather before the pyramid craft to witness the execution of the people from Earth. Skaara signals to Jackson that he and the rest of the locals have stolen weapons from the team. Jackson then shoots Ra while the locals fire into the air to create a distraction. O’Neil, Jackson and the rest of the team flee Ra's ship and take shelter in a cave with the locals. Jackson confronts O’Neil about the bomb and O’Neil reveals that he was given orders to destroy the Stargate if any threats were found. Jackson wonders why O’Neil would be willing to throw his life away; O’Neil reveals that he watched his son accidentally shoot himself with his gun several years ago. Jackson reveals Ra’s plan to send the bomb back to Earth and O’Neil declares he’s going to stop it.


Later, Skaara draws a picture of the people's victory against Ra, which depicts three moons over a pyramid. Jackson realizes the picture represents the seventh symbol needed to reactivate the Stargate. Jackson prepares some food at a campfire and is laughed at by the locals, who mention that "husbands don't do this work." He realizes that Sha'uri, the young woman given to him, is his wife. Sha'uri feels that she wasn't wanted, but Jackson proceeds to demonstrate to Sha'uri that he wants her very much.


The next day, Ra's guards search for the escapees by keeping an eye on the locals coming in and out of the city. A guard locates Jackson and is shot dead by O’Neil with a staff weapon. Jackson reveals the truth to the locals about their ‘gods’ and opens up the guard’s mask to reveal his face. The people who doubted Sha’uri’s story now believe her. Later that day, the team infiltrates a mineral shipment caravan that is to be delivered to Ra, to get inside the pyramid and escape with the bomb. The bomb is sent down to the Stargate so that it will be sent through with the mineral when it arrives.


After they reach the pyramid, O’Neil, Jackson, Sha’uri and several locals rush into the pyramid and defeat the guards, but most of the team are blocked outside the pyramid and are attacked by Ra's aircraft. O’Neil, Daniel and Sha’uri make it to the Stargate, although Sha’uri is shot and killed. O’Neil sets the timer on the bomb to seven minutes. Just then, the transporter rings activate and Jackson uses them to transport onto the ship with Sha’uri’s body. The Anubis guard transports to the planet in Jackson’s place and fights O’Neil.


Jackson uses the sarcophagus on the ship to revive Sha’uri. The two of them then attempt to beam down using the rings, although Ra attempts to stop them. On the planet, O’Neil uses the transport ring on top of the Anubis guard’s head, crushing him, which transports Jackson and Sha’uri down to the planet. When the team runs out of ammo they surrender to the guards who land their aircraft and prepare to kill them. Then the locals, lead by Kasuf, overpower Ra’s guards and save the team. Ra decides to retreat and prepares his ship for takeoff. Inside the pyramid, O’Neil discovers that the bomb cannot be turned off due to Ra’s tampering. O’Neil and Jackson then decide to transport the bomb to Ra’s ship, which has now left orbit, which they do. Ra watches as the bomb goes of, destroying the ship and himself. The people are now free, and the team is able to return to Earth.


Jackson decides to remain on the planet with Sha'uri and help the locals build a new society. O’Neil returns to Earth with the rest of the team, a changed man given a purpose and a new reason to live. Jackson gives O'Neil Langford's necklace and instructs him to tell her it did bring him luck. The film ends with O’Neil returning to Earth through the Stargate.


Sequels

Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich always envisoned Stargate as the first part of a trilogy of films, but parts two and three were never developed. At Comic-Con 2006, 12 years after the original film was released, writer/producer Dean Devlin confirmed that he was in early discussions with rightsholders MGM about finally bringing the final two parts to the screen.[2]


According to Devlin, the second film is intended to be set around 12 years after the original, with Daniel Jackson making a discovery that leads him back to Earth and to the uncovering of a new Stargate. The second movie would supposedly use a different mythology from the Egyptian one which formed the background to the original movie, with the third movie tying these together to reveal that "all mythologies are actually tied together with a common thread that we haven't recognized before."[3] Devlin stated that he hoped to enlist original stars Kurt Russell (Col. Jack O'Neil) and James Spader (Dr. Daniel Jackson) for the sequels. The actors have reportedly expressed an interest in participating in the project.[4] Kurt Vogel Russell (born March 17, 1951) is an American actor. ... James Todd Spader (born February 7, 1960, in Boston, Massachusetts), who is known to prefer being called Jimmy,[1] is a three-time Emmy-winning and Golden Globe-nominated American actor[2] who is best known for his eccentric roles in movies such as Sex, Lies, and Videotape (for which...


The movie trilogy would not directly tie in to the Stargate SG-1 TV series. Of the relationship between the movies and the TV series, Devlin said "We would just continue the mythology of the movie and finish that out. I think the series could still live on at the end of the third sequel. So we're going to try to not tread on their stories."[3] Plans for sequels to the original film are unrelated to the development of two straight-to-DVD movies being made as sequels to the Stargate SG-1 TV series. Stargate SG-1 (often abbreviated as SG-1) is a science fiction television series, part of the Stargate franchise. ...


Reception

Stargate received mostly poor reviews gaining a 43% rating on review collection website Rottentomatoes.com. Most of the negative reviews focused on the overuse of special effects, thinness of plot and excessive use of cliches with Roger Ebert going so far as to say, "the movie Ed Wood, about the worst director of all time, was made to prepare us for Stargate." However the positive reviews stated that it was an "instant camp classic", and praised the film for its special effects and entertainment value,[5] with Chris Hicks of Deseret News calling it "Star Wars meets Ben Hur".[6] Rotten Tomatoes (http://www. ... Clich (from French, imitative) refers to: an overused phrase or expression, or the idea expressed by it; a situation, theme or characterization which has become common; a thing (as a style of clothing) that has become overly familiar or commonplace. ...

Ed Wood is a biopic directed by Tim Burton, starring Johnny Depp as the cross-dressing cult movie maker Edward D. Wood Jr. ...

Ben-Hur is a 1959 epic film directed by William Wyler, and is the most popular live-action version of Lew Wallaces novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ (1880). ...


The film received a warmer reception from the public, grossing $71.5 million at the US box office and $196 million worldwide.[7]

Soundtrack

The soundtrack was composed by David Arnold and played by the Sinfonia of London[1] and conducted by Nicholas Dodd. It was the second motion picture Arnold had composed and the first major motion picture. At the time of Stargate's production, David Arnold had recently started to work in a local video store in London. Once Arnold got the job, he spent several months in a hotel room working on the soundtrack, spending more time rewriting the music and improving it as delays were being created due to film companies trying to get the rights to release the film. [2] David Arnold (born February 27, 1962 in Luton in Bedfordshire, England) is one of the most popular and successful young British composers[citation needed].

Differences between Stargate and SG-1

Main article: Differences between Stargate and Stargate SG-1

Although the original Stargate film possessed a rich backstory and universe (created and developed through official production notes, scripts, and a subsequent novel and graphic novel series),[citation needed] it was largely ignored and disregarded when MGM, although they lost key rights to the original film after its home video release (such rights are now owned by Lionsgate), did own the rights to the franchise in general, took Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin's product and handed the reins to a new team of creators (Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner) for the television series Stargate SG-1.[citation needed] This new team introduced many new concepts and changed many aspects of the film's backstory. Although the movie Stargate and the television series Stargate SG-1 share similar names, there is a number of differences in the canon of these fictional works. ...

Stargate: Information from Answers.com (7484 words)
Stargates, as depicted in the Stargate science fiction universe, are large, ring-shaped devices that utilize advanced technology for nearly instantaneous personal travel across the vast distances of space.
The Stargate is the central plot generator of these productions, allowing for stories focused on a small team of protagonists exploring other planets and meeting other races on foot, rather than the more prevalent, grandiose "space opera" of interstellar starships seen elsewhere in science fiction.
The Stargate itself is nearly always filmed against a blue or green backdrop, not only making it easier to paste the kawoosh imagery onto the scene, but also facilitating the superimposition of the "event horizon ripple effect", which is entirely computer-generated.
Stargate (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (4056 words)
Stargate is a science fiction/action film released in 1994, directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich, with a soundtrack by David Arnold.
In SG-1, the Stargate is in the Cheyenne Mountain military complex.
The Stargate on Abydos in the film is deep within the center of the pyramid, down a ramp from the main atrium room with pillars.
