Dying Star Trek Fan Gets Special Screening Of INTO DARKNESS

This is such a cool story. Filmmaker JJ Abrams, who is known for being super secretive about keeping his various projects under wraps, did an extraordinary thing for a dying STAR TREK fan; he gave him an advance screening of the new film INTO DARKNESS since this fan will not likely live to see the film's commercial release this summer. 

I saw the story linked on IMDB yesterday from NextMovie.  The whole thing started on Christmas Eve as the dying man's family posted the request on a STAR TREK board on Reddit.  Things took off from there after many comments and eventually the request made it's way directly to the film's director. Kudos to Abrams for making a dying man's dream come true. A truly heatwarming Hollywood tale...
