The Wrath of Khan returns to theaters in September

Widely considered the greatest Star Trek film of all time, director Nicholas Meyer‘s Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan will return to theaters this September in celebration of its 40th anniversary.

Paramount Pictures and Turner Classic Movies, in partnership with Fathom Events, is slated to bring the film to select theaters in the U.S. on September 4th, 5th and 8th.

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.

This special 40th anniversary event includes exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies. 

Written by Harve Bennett and Jack B. Sowards, The Wrath of Khan was first released in theaters June 4, 1982 and starred William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, George Takei, Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols, Kirstie Alley, Bibi Besch, and Ricardo Montalbán as he returned to the iconic role of Khan Noonien Singh.

Tickets for the 40th anniversary screenings are on sale now through the Fathom Events website.

    Not going to pay to see this again, unless they provide additional ‘unseen Bloopers’ or other extra content never seen before.

    I’ve seen this movie at least 10 times now.

      I’ve seen it 100+ times, literally. Including 3x in the past 5 years in the theater. All I can tell you is that when you get that movie rolling with a theater full of Trekkies, it’s well worth the price of admission. And up here in Connecticut we’ll be tail gaiting for it too. Hope you reconsider and join the fun.
