A bunch of lucky geeks got to see J.J. Abrams Star Trek tonight at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin Texas. And I gotta say I am extremely happy for them. It's good to know that miracles still occur in this day and age. Paramount did the old bait and switch! They invited a bunch of people down to watch a special screening of Wrath of Kahn on Monday night and ended up showing everybody that showed up the new Star Trek film instead! Leonard Nimoy, Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzmanand Bob Orci were in attendance. Congratulations to everyone that got to see the movie! It must have been quite an experience. I have posted some early buzz that has been popping up on twitter. Everyone seems to love the hell out of it. I am even more pumped to see this movie now!
