Paramount pulled off an awesome stunt last night in Texas. What was promoted as a screening of The Wrath of Khan at the Alamo Drafthouse in Texas, followed by a special 10-minute preview of J.J. Abrams Star Trek, turned into a surprise full screening of the film, hours ahead of its world wide premiere in Sydney, Australia.
The event included Leonard Nimoy, Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci. Nimoy was the one who revealed to the audience that they would be watching the full film.
Initial reactions seem very positive. Head on over to TrekMovie to keep on top of the latest news and reports on the surprise screening, and the upcoming worldwide premiere in Australia.
