My Favorite Movie With Tom King, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan


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. 

Future Tense is a partnership of Slate, New America, and Arizona State University.
