Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan debuted in the US on June 4, 1982
It’s hard to believe it’s been almost forty years since Admiral Kirk and Khan Noonien Singh went head to head again in a battle that resulted in heavy casulaties. Since its debut on June 4, 1982, The Wrath of Khan has consistently been considered one of the best, if not the best, Star Trek movie ever produced. The movie has been so popular that William Shatner appears at screenings across the US, which are followed by stories and anecdotes and Q&A sessions.
Now, the film is returning to theaters for everyone to see during a limited three-night engagement, running September 4th, 5th, and 6th in select U.S. theaters, according to Treknews. (You can also check out the eye-catching 40th anniversary poster there!) The event is being presented by Paramount Pictures in coordination with Turner Classic Movies which will provide exclusive insight into the movie.
You may have streamed Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan dozens of times
All of us have probably watched it many, many times over the years since its release because, well, it’s just that good. But unless you have the world’s largest television, which LG calls an “extreme home cinema,” you haven’t seen The Wrath of Khan on a screen a big as a cinema screen since its 35th anniversary five years ago. And there’s nothing like seeing this movie on a screen as tall as 30 feet.
The return to movie theaters is over eight months away, but Fathom Events already has tickets up for sale for the standard admission price. You can check the website to see if the movie will be coming to a theater near you.
