The past and the future of Starfleet comes to the 2011 Hero Complex Film Festival on June 10 as Nicholas Meyer, the director of 1982 fan favorite “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” and the creative team of the 2009 franchise-reviving “Star Trek,” will share the same stage during a double-feature screening of their films.
Meyer, viewed as one of the true integrity figures in the long cinematic journey of the starship Enterprise, will bring a director’s cut of the 1982 movie that many view as the most satisfying voyage of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and the rest of the iconic crew. Then, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof, three key members of the “Star Trek” creative team (as well as top-tier writers and producers whose collective credits include “Lost,” “Transformers,” “Fringe” and “Cowboys & Aliens“) will take the stage together and talk about the success of the J.J. Abrams-directed movie and their plans for the intensely anticipated sequel.
Tickets are now on sale for the Hero Complex Film Festival, which runs June 9-12 at the Mann Chinese 6 in Hollywood (soon to be renamed the Chinese 6 Theatre; the venue is set to change hands). Los Angeles Times staff writer Geoff Boucher, the creator and lead writer of the award-winning Hero Complex website, will conduct the onstage interviews.
