Default Dying Fan gets Private Screening of Star Trek II

http://www.nextmovie.com/blog/dying-...into-darkness/

Quote:
Right from the first episode of Gene Roddenberry's 1966 TV series, the "Star Trek" franchise has been devoted to the idea of hope for a better future through faith in humanity. And according to Cinema Blend, J.J. Abrams has taken that message seriously, as the director of the rebooted franchise has granted one fan his dying wish: To see highly anticipated sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness."

Faith rewarded.

As pretty much any "Star Trek" fan can tell you, "Star Trek Into Darkness" is the hotly anticipated sequel to Abrams' 2009 "Star Trek" relaunch; originally scheduled to hit theaters last summer, "Star Trek Into Darkness" had to be pushed back to this May 17 due to production delays.

For most fans, of course, the delay has been just a minor irritant. But for one fan named Dan, it was something more, as Dan has been diagnosed with a non-treatable form of cancer. On Christmas Day, his friends and family took to the internet, posting his story on Reddit, with one plea: Help get Dan an advance screening of "Star Trek Into Darkness."

And for director J.J. Abrams, that was one request he couldn't deny.

"It was truly amazing that a filmmaker so secretive as J.J. Abrams was kind enough to show this to us," Dan's wife posted a few days ago. "It is also so wonderful for his friends & his family to finally hear some good news from us, they know how important film is to Daniel & could not think of a better way to please him. So this gesture really has brought a lot of smiles all around.

"It was a wonderful thing to see with Daniel and a wonderful thing to see Daniel enjoy - Making someone as ill as he is smile for any length of time really makes a difference. (At this point making me smile is good too)," she continued. "This is also so poignant as JJ Abrams took so much care in the first 'Star Trek' movie to at least TRY to get everything 'right' for the fans and we were so touched when he was concerned that we wouldn't 100% enjoy the screening as it's still being worked on....... Be assured we enjoyed it 110%!

"We are so grateful thank you, thank you, thank you...."

A great story to start the new year.
nice.

They probably showed him a private screening of Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan, which is why he liked it so much

Seriously though, that's very touching. Not been a fan of JJ lately, but what he did there was class act.

And then the next day he spoiled it on the internet....going down in history as the greatest troll of the year.

But really, that's pretty classy of JJ Abrams to do that.

Reminds me of that film Fanboys, about when they try and see Star Wars The Phantom Menace before their friend dies.

Great touch from the makers.

Nice, this'd make a nice fake storyline on Big Bang Theory executed by Sheldon Cooper.
