Mike Hodge’s iconic Flash Gordon turns 40 this year and we’re not done celebrating! Not only have we had the release of StudioCanal’s 4K UHD restoration, now we can find out more about the film from those involved with John Walsh’s Flash Gordon The Official Story Of The Film.
Flash Gordon became an instant cult favourite the moment it was released. One of the most quotable and beloved sci-fi films ever, it is legendary for its unique look, tone and iconic soundtrack.
Written by the brilliant John Walsh (who we spoke to earlier this year about his previous release Harryhausen: The Lost Movies), this beautiful, first-of-its-kind coffee table book will delve into the making of the movie and celebrate its legacy.
Featuring brand new interviews with cast and creative, including stars Sam Jones and Brian Blessed and director Mike Hodges, this stunning book features never-been-seen-before concept artwork and behind-the-scenes photography that makes it a must-have for any classic sci-fi fan. Including stunning artwork from the unmade on the Nicholas Roeg film.
