I just got back from the Chiller Convention in NJ. At the show was Melody Anderson and Sam Jones (Flash & Dale) from the movie. I asked Ms.Anderson if the movie was going to be re-released. And she said it was coming next year for the 25th anniversary. I wasn't able to get anymore info. But, at least we know it's coming.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

God, fantastic Halloween news. Maybe I can finally ditch the old Universal release sitting on the shelf. Nice new transfer, second disc of extras, commentary, maybe an MST3K treatment...

Finally, a title that deserves a Universal re-release gets one.

Everybody sing along:

"FLASH! AAH-AAH! HE'LL SAVE EVERY ONE OF US!"

Hell yes! (Though they should license it out to Anchor Bay or Blue Underground, then we'll get a nifty 2-disc set with perhaps the Mike Hodges R2 commentary and interview intact...)

Is that what Freddie Murcury is saying? I always thought it was "HE'S THE SAVIOUR OF THE UNIVERSE!"

I just cant see thisas a BU title, but nice to hear MCA will do something extra to it, like the recent DRACULA 1979 re-issue.

Great news indeed. I sold my old version quite a while ago.
The going rate on ebay was so high I couldn't resist.

Hopefully they will make it a 2-disc like others have mentioned. I guess we'll see.
Gimme da cashhh!!

the HD transfer showtime has been showing recently is beautiful so the transfer for the dvd should be pretty good.

The lyrics are:

Flash - a-ah - saviour of the universe
Flash - a-ah - he'll save everyone of us
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Flash - a-ah - he's a miracle
Flash - a-ah - king of the impossible

He's for everyone of us
Stand for everyone of us
He'll save with a mighty hand
Every man every woman
Every child - with a mighty flash

Flash - a-ah
Flash - a-ah - he'll save everyone of us

Just a man
With a man's courage
He knows nothing but a man
But he can never fail
No one but the pure in heart
May find the golden grail
Oh oh - oh oh
Flash
 This Are Intentionally Left Blank

"What do you mean, 'Flash Gordon Approching'?"

One of my favorite lines in all of cinema.

I've never had the pleasure of seeing the movie in widescreen, so as long as we get a clean print and a few fun extras, I'd be overjoyed.

I like the followup line of Mariangela Melato: "Dispatch War Rocket Ajax to bring back his body"

Do Not Be Afraid. That sound is simply my mind boggling.

If anyone is interested to see how both Sam & Melody look now. I took a picture with both of them. I can scan it. I just need someone to host the picture. So I can show it here.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.
