J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek has screened in Austin, Texas!
This is unbearably cool.
I’ve been reading for weeks now about a special screening this week of a pristine new print of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX. Seeing the magnificence of Khan on the big screen would be awesome enough, but the screening was also scheduled to include 10 minutes of footage from J.J. Abrams’ new Star Trek film.
But in one of the coolest bait-and-switches in history, apparently just 5 or so minutes into last night’s screening they swapped out Khan to show J.J. ABRAMS’ NEW STAR TREK FILM IN ITS ENTIRETY!!!
How wild is that?? I am literally beside myself with envy.

(I’ll warn you, though t,hat I stopped reading this piece once the description of the actual film begins because it was getting a tad too spoilery for me.)
But wait! That’s not enough detail, you say? How about some video?
Finally, in the interest of keeping our expectations in check, click here to read the thoughts of someone who enjoyed the film but wasn’t quite so head-over-heels in love with it. (This is fairly spoiler-free, but I still sort of skipped through it to avoid reading too much about the film.)
I can’t believe it’s still a MONTH away…!
