Leonard Nimoy passed on to the next astral plane on Feb. 27, 2015, and we're still dealing with the monumental loss amid all the celebrations of his amazing life and career. Nimoy's son, Adam Nimoy, began a Kickstarter campaign to fund a documentary of his father's legacy as science officer Spock on the original Star Trek TV series. Initially launched on June 3, 2015, the movement was perfectly timed with this year's 50th anniversary of Star Trek, and ultimately netted $662K to make For the Love of Spock, a personal, intimate look at the life and career of Leonard Nimoy and his soulful alter ego, Mr. Spock. Told through the remembrances of many of Nimoy's colleagues, admirers and friends, such as William Shatner, J.J. Abrams, George Takei, Simon Pegg and Zachary Quinto, it's a moving memorial for a man whose creative life inspired generations.
Nimoy will be premiering a version of the film at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival starting this Saturday, with the Monday, April 18, showing offering a special talkback session with the director, Zachary Quinto and others.
Here's the first trailer for the documentary and a new poster announcing For the Love of Spock. Launch into the teaser to this loving tribute and tell us if you'll try and catch it when the film becomes available for streaming later this year.
