J.J. Abrams Gives Private Screening of STAR TREK Film to Dying Fan

Comingsoon.net reports that J.J. Abrams gave a private screening of the highly anticipated film STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS, for a lifelong fan of the franchise who is suffering from two forms of cancer.

According to the report, a user on Reddit posted that his friend, who had only a few weeks to live, was disappointed when he went to a local theater to view 'The Hobbit' hoping to see the prologue for the upcoming Star Trek film. However, the prologue was not screened at the showing he attended.

The online posting caught the eye of Star Trek director J.J. Abrams who set up a private screening of the entire film for Dan and his wife. The thrilled duo expressed their excitement posting, "Hi everyone, it's Daniel's wife, we are of course sworn to secrecy, BUT we are officially allowed to say we saw it and we enjoyed it IMMENSELY as a film and as a gesture...We were so touched when [Abrams] was concerned that we wouldn't 100% enjoy the screening as it's still being worked on....... Be assured we enjoyed it 110%!"

She went on to ask that everyone keep their story in mind as an example of giving during the holidays. "This is a story of us giving something to him, the 'internet' community giving something to him and ultimately being a heartwarming gift to our friends, family and so many others. This story of us (and of course JJAbrams & Bad Robot) being able to give this surprise gift of a screening to a huge movie buff like Daniel, especially a film made by a film maker who obviously makes movies with such care, with a fan like Daniel in mind."
