New York Asian Film Festival director Dan Craft left this world with his last wish granted.
The terminally ill "Star Trek" fan was recently granted a personal DVD screening of an early cut of the forthcoming "Star Trek Into Darkness" by director Jj Abrams - five months before the film's release date.
His friend soon launched a social media campaign asking for anyone to help. Such is the power of the Internet that within a day, Abrams himself was made aware of Craft's situation.
Abrams made the screening happen, a producer hand delivering the rough-cut DVD of the film to their door and, after signing non-disclosure agreements, they watched the film and thoroughly enjoyed it.
