Saturday, June 4th, 2022 is the 40th anniversary of the release of classic 1982 science fiction revenge film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. To celebrate, Star Trek will be presenting the Summer of Sweet Revenge!
The festivities will include curated episodes and movies on Paramount+, screenings of the movie and activations in select cities, pop-ups in Los Angeles, New York City, and at San Diego Comic Con, and team-ups with Funko and Coolhaus. Stabbing at Kirk from Hell’s heart is optional, but encouraged!
Wrath of P’Khan Ice Cream Truck
Perhaps the sweetest part of the Summer of Sweet Revenge will be the Wrath of P’Khan ice cream truck from women-owned ice cream brand Coolhaus.
On June 4th, Trekkies in NYC will get their opportunity to taste sweet revenger thanks to a special branded ice cream truck will be bringing limited-edition Wrath of P’Khan ice cream sandwiches to Prince Street and Green Street in SoHo.
The truck will then continue to Los Angeles to celebrate National Ice Cream Day (July 17th) in Santa Monica at 2nd Street and Santa Monica Boulevard.
And then the Wrath of P’Khan truck will be present at San Diego Comic Con from July 21st through July 24th.
