Featuring an all-star cast and a much-celebrated soundtrack by Queen, this is the original and best version of the sci-fi classic Flash Gordon, based on the comic books by Alex Raymond and Don Moore. Enjoy once again, this time in HD as well as gloriously camp, lurid Technicolor.
Flash (Sam J Jones) is a football hero skyjacked aboard Dr Zarkov?s (Topol, Fiddler on the Roof) spaceship along with the beautiful Dale Arden (Melody Anderson). The threesome is drawn into the influence of the planet Mongo where they encounter Ming the Merciless (Max Von Sydow, Shutter Island, The Exorcist, The Seventh Seal) and together must foil his plot to destroy Earth. Also Timothy Dalton (Licence to Kill, Living Daylights) Richard O?Brien (Rocky Horror Picture Show), Peter Duncan (TV?s Blue Peter!) and Robbie Coltrane (TV?s Cracker).
