The 1980 film Flash Gordon starring Sam J. Jones and directed by Mike Hodges is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on August 18th, via Arrow Video. EDITORIAL NOTE: This will be one of their first 4K releases for distributor Arrow Video, and we’re excited to see them join on in supporting the format.

The film itself co-starred Melody Anderson, Max von Sydow, Topol, Ornella Muti, and Timothy Dalton. The film has a “brand new 4K restoration by Studiocanal from the original camera negative approved by director Mike Hodges” according to Arrow Video. Tech specs include the 2.35:1 aspect ratio in HDR10 and Dolby Vision forms of High Dynamic Range as well as DTS-HD Master Audio in 5.1 and 2.0 Stereo configurations. The upcoming standard (“Special Edition”) 4K UHD Blu-ray is now available for preorder over at Amazon. It is most also certainly worth noting that there will be a Limited Edition 4K UHD Blu-ray “Collector’s Set” available (as pictured below), which is now listed for preorder over at Amazon.flash_gordon_limited_edition_4k

Bonus materials differ from what will be on the 1-disc standard 4K release and the 2-disc Limited Edition “Collector’s Set” — of which the latter will feature an exclusive second Blu-ray Disc. For that very reason, I’ll be listing it further below, after the break.
