Revenge Is A Dish That Is Best Served Cold

Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan
Standard Speaker - Hazleton, PA (1982)
In most cases, a movie sequel doesn't live up to the expectations set in the original.  However, on rare occasions, it surpasses them.  That was the case with Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, which premiered in theaters 30 years ago today.

The studio did a poor job of hiding the dramatic conclusion of the Star Trek sequel.  News about the death of Spock began to circulate while the movie was still in production.

This clipping was published in the Times Leader on June 4th, 1982, so even fans who managed to avoid the rumors about Spock's death would have read about it in the newspaper hours before they could have attended the earliest screening of the film.
