The movie that inspired Spock to fight the Ego Monster William Shatner.

Moviegoers eager to join Captain Marvel in space this March are first encouraged to blast off to a Forbidden Planet. Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie are heading back in time to explore a highly influential science fiction classic. Will the hosts be over the moon for this Freudian take on future peril as Leslie Nielsen – trading his “Naked Gun” for a laser ray – fights off an invisible Id Monster? And does Robbie The Robot come off as C-3PO’s cool older brother, or the prototype for the Terminator? Enlist to become a Now Playing Patron and find out!
