J.J. Abrams Grants Terminal Cancer Patient’s Dying Wish to See Star Trek Into Darkness Early

From Collider:

Every once in a while we get to post a human interest story that is just barely related to movie news, like Ron Perlman dressing up as Hellboy for a Make-a-Wish patient or President Barack Obama reacting to a pint-sized Spider-Man’s web. Now director J.J. Abrams has reportedly answered the dying wishes of a terminal cancer patient by arranging a screening of Star Trek Into Darkness well ahead of its planned debut of May 17, 2013. While it seems like a small request from an obvious fan whose time on this Earth is being cut short, it’s even more impressive considering how famously secretive Abrams is concerning his projects. It’s refreshing to see that he’s got his priorities straight in this case. (Cinema, J.J. Abrams, Star Trek Into Darkness)

Just such a nice story to hear, especially considering how secretive Abrams likes to be. I just hope the guy gets to see a fairly complete version of the film.

it doesn't say whole movie for sure...it says maybe just 9 minutes...

Still awesome though.

Think he could struggle with the whole movie, its still 5 months from release! I would imagine it isn't even close to being complete.

Even a good promo would be really kind, but I bet he'll do the best he can if he has rough cuts to show.

Yeah, that's the first thing I thought about as well, actually.

If I ever get terminal cancer I am going to ask to play Half Life 3! C'mon Valve!

Maybe now that kid can tell us who the villain is!

Joking aside, what a cool guy.
