Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is returning to theaters to celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2022.
Star Trek: II: The Wrath of Khan debuted in 1982, delivering a more focused, tenser story than the first Star Trek movie. Critics and fans widely regard The Wrath of Khan as the best Star Trek movie and one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time, particularly praising William Shatner’s performance as Kirk and Ricardo Montalban as the Khan. Read our review of the classic here.
Here’s the official information and poster from Fathom:
“One of the most celebrated and essential adventures from the STAR TREK universe, STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN celebrates 40 years with the director’s cut on the big screen. On routine training maneuvers, Admiral James T. Kirk seems resigned that this may be the last space mission of his career. But an adversary from the past has returned with a vengeance.
Aided by his exiled band of genetic supermen, Khan (Ricardo Montalban)—brilliant renegade of 20th century Earth—has raided Space Station Regula One, stolen the top-secret device called Project Genesis, wrested control of another Federation starship, and now schemes to set a most deadly trap for his old enemy Kirk… with the threat of a universal Armageddon.”
In association with Turner Classic Movies, Fathom Events will send The Wrath of Khan back to theaters for three nights in September: Sunday, September 4th, Monday, September 5th, and Thursday, September 8th.
