FLASH AHH AHH!



PATHETIC EARTHLINGS, WHO CAN SAVE YOU NOW?



MOMENTUM PICTURES PRESENTS THE SILVER ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF FLASH GORDON



Nominated for 3 BAFTA’s – Costume, Original Music, Production Design – after its initial release in 1980, the legendary FLASH GORDON returns in a blaze of glory on 10 October 2005 in a must-have 25th Anniversary Edition courtesy of Momentum Pictures.



Boxed in limited edition steelbook packaging, and featuring a host of extras exclusive to this release, the latest and best edition of this sci fi classic will be irresistible to film fans and DVD collectors both young and old alike. Retaining the adventurous spirit and striking visual style of the original 1930s comic strip, and featuring an unforgettable soundtrack performed by Queen, Mike Hodges’ FLASH GORDON has become synonymous with the hugely successful blockbusters Superman, Star Wars and Scanners. The breakthrough film for Timothy Dalton, and arguably the showcase for Brian Blessed’s most memorable role, FLASH GORDON also stars Sam Jones as Flash, Topol as Dr Hans Zarkov and Max Von Sydow as Emperor Ming, The Merciless.



A trail-blazing film that is at once camp, garish, over the top and magnificent fun, FLASH GORDON is an essential addition to any film collection.



Synopsis



Flash is a football hero who is skyjacked aboard Dr Zarkov’s rocketship along with beautiful Dale Arden. They are drawn into the influence of the planet Mongo, controlled by Ming the Merciless. Ming has been testing the Earth with unnatural disasters, and deeming it a threat to his rule, he plans to destroy it. He also intends to take Dale as his concubine. Flash must avoid the amorous attentions of Ming’s daughter and unite the warring kingdoms of Mongo to rescue Dale and save the world.
