Here’s the official event description:
The Director’s Cut of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, widely considered the best Star Trek film, is getting a special theatrical release this September to celebrate its 35th anniversary! I had a chance to sit down with writer/director Nicholas Meyer to discuss his experiences making the movie and its long-lasting success. But first, some exclusive details regarding the big screen re-release…
The digitally remastered Director’s Cut of Wrath of Khan will show for two days on Sunday, September 10th and Wednesday, September 13th in more than 600 theaters across the U.S. at 2pm and 7pm local time. Fans can buy advance tickets starting today. Screenings will be preceded by a brand new 18-minute interview with William Shatner about the making of the film. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. (For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website.)

It’s always a good time for a Wrath of Khan rewatch, but the film may be particularly relevant now amidst the rumors that Meyer is developing a Khan reboot TV series for CBS. Back in June, Meyer told TrekMovie (via io9): “One thing that has nothing to do with Discovery is that I am working on another Star Trek project, but I can’t discuss that either.”
This week, Geek Exchange claimed that the secret Star Trek project in the works is none other than a miniseries about Khan Noonien Singh. Currently, Meyer is working as a writer on Star Trek: Discovery.
