New Flash Gordon pop art by Art & Hue, anniversary restoration of film on way

Art & Hue - Flash Gordon 40th Anniversary Prints


Marking 40 years of the cult science-fiction film inspired by the original newspaper strip, Art & Hue has created a new collection of stylish pop art prints featuring the iconic Flash Gordon.

The classic film’s icons have been given the Art & Hue pop art treatment to create ten new prints, featuring Sam J. Jones as Flash Gordon himself, along with Melody Anderson as Dale Arden, Brian Blessed as Prince Vultan, Timothy Dalton as Prince Barin, Mariangela Melato as General Kala, and Max Von Sydow as Ming the Merciless.

An official collaboration with brand owner King Features, the collection is inspired by the 1980 cult classic with the Queen soundtrack, which itself is based on the long-running comic strip started by Alex Raymond in 1934.

In addition to the pop art collection to celebrate the 40th anniversary, STUDIOCANAL have restored the film, scanned from the original 35mm negative, to produce a new 4k UHD Blu-ray featuring two engaging commentaries by Brian Blessed and director Mike Hodges.

The release, featuring many more extras and goodies, is due for release on the 10th August 2020.

Exclusively by Art & Hue, the collection is available in three sizes and many colour options, all printed on museum-quality archival card of 310gsm, made from 100% cotton, with fine-art pigment inks for longevity.
