I’ve already talked about my love for the 1980 Flash Gordon.

Well, earlier today, Universal has announced that a new DVD release of the movie will be hitting store shelves on August 7. Titled “Saviour Of The Universe Edition” (though I have no idea why they went with the British spelling), no details have been announced as to what this edition will contain.
We do, however, know that the cover will feature some beautiful artwork by comic book painter Alex Ross.

Wonderful news! I dearly hope they will include the Brian Blessed commentary track from the UK Special Edition. It’s hilarious. Who knew it was his favorite film of his career? Who knew the sequel was going to be set on Mars? Leaving out the BB commentary would be criminal.
