"Leonard was a self-made renaissance man." Gravitas Ventures has debuted a trailer for the documentary For the Love of Spock, directed by Leonard Nimoy's son Adam Nimoy. The film profiles the life and times of Leonard Nimoy, specifically his career as the legendary Vulcan Spock from the Star Trek series. This is obviously perfectly timed with Comic-Con this week, as they hope to reach fans of all ages, but it also looks like an emotional, all-encompassing look at the amazing man that Leonard Nimoy was. He passed away in early 2015, and made his mark on the science fiction world, and his legacy will live on forever. This looks like a wonderful documentary that is really much more uplifting and inspiring above all else. Enjoy.
Here's the official trailer for Adam Nimoy's documentary For the Love of Spock, in high def from Apple:
Laden with never-before-seen footage and interviews of friends, family and colleagues, For the Love of Spock tells the life of Star Trek’s Mr. Spock and the actor who played him for nearly fifty years, Leonard Nimoy. The film's focus began as a celebration of the fifty-year anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series, but after Leonard passed away in February 2015, his son, director Adam Nimoy, was ready to tell another story: his personal experience growing up with Leonard and Spock. Adam not only shares details on the creation, evolution, and universal impact of Mr. Spock, but also about the ups and downs of being the son of a TV icon. For the Love of Spock is directed by Adam Nimoy, Leonard Nimoy's son and a TV director. The film is available in theaters + on VOD starting September 9th. For more visit their website.
