Star Trek Into Darkness: Another Reason to love J.J. Abrams

J.J. Abrams


           I stumbled across this story yesterday, and had to share.  A New Yorker recently diagnosed with terminal cancer really wanted to see the new, shrouded in secret Star Trek Into Darkness 9 minute trailer.  He wasn't able to, but director J.J. Abrams did him one better.  Make that one hundred times better.  The rough cut copy of the film arrived at Dan Craft's home. (The film doesn't hit theaters until May.)  Craft and his wife were able to watch the film that no one knows anything about because of the J.J. Abrams no spoilers policy.  I appreciate not knowing everything about Star Trek, but I really appreciate Abrams sharing his story with a passionate film lover before he died.  When film nerds unite, it is sometimes a beautiful story.
