Celebrating the 40th anniversary of its release, classic cult sci-fi adventure Flash Gordon follows a football player and his friends fighting to save planet earth.

When the Earth experiences a series of attacks from outer space, Flash Gordon (Sam J. Jones), a football hero, is zapped with his beautiful companion Dale (Melody Anderson) from Dr. Hans Zarkov's (Topol) rocket ship to the planet Mongo, ruled by Emperor Ming the Merciless (Oscar nominee Max von Sydow). In an attempt to put an end to the evil Ming’s plans to destroy the Earth with unnatural disasters, Flash battles Ming’s goons and must avoid the amorous advances of the luscious Space Princess Aura. With the help of Prince Barin (Timothy Dalton) and Prince Vultan (Brian Blessed), Flash Gordon takes the Ming empire by storm…

With a rocking soundtrack composed, performed and produced by Queen, Flash Gordon is a vibrant space opera adapted from the 1930s comic strip, and now re-released in a brand new 4K restoration approved by acclaimed British director Mike Hodges.

Mike Hodges’ vintage intergalactic fable delivers mayhem, madness and eye-frazzling colour.” The Guardian
