Paramount Home Entertainment and Fathom Events will bring The Wrath of Khan back to the big screen during the TCM Big Screen Classics series on September 4th, 5th, and 8th. There will be over 2,500 screenings of the film across the three-day event.

Per a press release for the screening sent out in January, "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."

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is streaming now on Paramount+. It is also available on home media in 4k ultra-high-definition, both individually and as part of the Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection.
