OMG! It's nearly time...

...for new Star Trek.

From trekmovie.com via the AV Club:

Tonight Paramount pulled off one of the coolest stunts in fan history. Promoted as just a 10 minute preview of the new Star Trek to show along with The Wrath of Khan, tonight fans in Austin, TX were actually shown the entire new Star Trek movie. The event included surprise guests, including the original Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy.

And then, surprisingly:

According to a friend who called in to TrekMovie after the event, the audience reaction was very positive.
Gosh, really? Because I would have expected people to want their money back.
