Flash Gordon Returns With A New 4K Restoration Re-Release!

Studiocanal has debuted a new trailer for the 4K re-release (in the UK / Europe) of the camp sci-fi classic Flash Gordon.

Originally premiering in December of 1980, Flash Gordon was directed by English filmmaker Mike Hodges, who made Get Carter, Pulp, and The Terminal Man before making this film. The colorful adventure was Alex Raymond’s famous comic strip and blasted to life in what became a sci-fi cult classic.

When energy waves pull the moon out of orbit, New York Jets quarterback Flash Gordon unwittingly finds himself heading for the planet Mongo, where – with assistance from beautiful Dale Arden – he’ll take on Ming the Merciless and rescue humankind.
