Join Future Tense and Tom King—writer of the comic books BatmanMister Miracle, and The Vision, among others—for a screening and discussion of the 1982 movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. The film, part of 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 the podcast Working. 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. The event is free and open to the public. You may RSVP for yourself and up to one guest. Seating will be limited. For more information and to RSVP, visit the New America website.
