Join Future Tense and Tom King—comic book writer for Batman, Mister Miracle, and The Vision, among others—for a screening and discussion of the 1982 movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. The film, based on the classic science fiction franchise, follows the crew of the USS Enterprise as they attempt to stop the genetically-engineered despot Khan Noonien Singh from acquiring a powerful planet-shaping device and exacting revenge.
The event will be followed by a discussion between King, and Jacob Brogan, Slate writer and host of Slate's “Working” podcast, about how the cult classic influenced his love of science fiction. Audience members will also have a chance to ask King their own questions about the film and his career.
This latest installment of Future Tense’s “My Favorite Movie” series will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6, at Washington, D.C.'s Landmark E Street Cinema at 555 11th Street NW. You may RSVP for yourself and up to one guest. The event is free and open to the public. Seating will be limited.
