The worldwide rights for the movie have been acquired by Gravitas Ventures, a “leading all rights distributor of independent cinema.”
For The Love of Spock “celebrates the upcoming Fiftieth Anniversary of Star Trek through a personal, intimate look at the life and career of Leonard Nimoy – and his alter ego Mr. Spock – as told by his son, Adam Nimoy, featuring never-before-seen home videos and family photos. Zachary Quinto, William Shatner, George Takei, J.J. Abrams, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Jim Parsons and more join in the celebration revealing why the world holds both Leonard Nimoy and his iconic character so dear and how Star Trek still affects the globe fifty years after its origin.”
