J.J. Abrams followed through on his promise to show a terminally ill man, identified only as '”Dan”, a private screening of “Star Trek into Darkness”, which isn’t due for release until May 17, 2013. Dan’s friends had started an internet campaign so that Dan, a huge “Star Trek” buff, could get his final wish. Dan, who has been suffering from two forms of cancer over the past three years, was recently informed that he has only weeks to live. His grateful wife posted, "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... Also, it was truly amazing that a filmmaker so secretive as JJ Abrams was kind enough to show this to us……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%!" Kudos, J.J.!
