Enjoy once again, this time in HD as well as gloriously camp, lurid Technicolor.

The threesome is drawn into the influence of the planet Mongo where they encounter Ming the Merciless (Max Von Sydow, Shutter Island, The Exorcist, The Seventh Seal) and together must foil his plot to destroy Earth. Also Timothy Dalton (Licence to Kill, Living Daylights) Richard O'Brien (Rocky Horror Picture Show), Peter Duncan (TV's Blue Peter!) and Robbie Coltrane (TV's Cracker).
