“For the Love of Spock” is coming to a theater — and video-on-demand service — near you. On Sept. 9.
That’s the day after the Star Trek franchise, which the late Leonard Nimoy was a part of from the very beginning, celebrates its 50th anniversary. And it will be the day fans everywhere will have their first real chance to see how Adam Nimoy honored his father, who died last year.
Following a successful showing at the Tribeca Film Festival last month in Manhattan, Gravitas Ventures has bought the worldwide distribution rights to the film, according to Deadline.com reporter Erik Pedersen. That will set up a limited theatrical run in select cities, as well as an opportunity to just purchase the film to watch at home. It wasn’t clear which VOD services the film would be made available on.
“It’s no secret that Star Trek is internationally beloved, and has shown the world both on-screen and off- what it truly means to be a global community,” Nolan Gallagher, the chief executive of Gravitas, said in a release. “We are honored to be collaborating with Adam Nimoy and look forward to bringing this film to audiences everywhere during a monumental year in the Star Trek timeline.”
