Daniel Craft, a movie buff and the director of the New York Asian Film Festival, was diagnosed with terminal cancer. A friend of his posted on the popular news and image sharing website Reddit about his condition and his wish to view the unreleased Star Trek movie, "Star Trek Into Darkness." When JJ Abrams, director of the film, heard about Craft's wish he sent a movie producer with a rough cut of the movie to Craft's apartment. A second post from his friend with a update stated that Craft had tons of fun watching the movie. Craft passed away the next day, his wish fulfilled.
