For the Love of Spock's First Teaser Is as Heartwarming as You'd Expect

It’s been just over a year since the icon that is Leonard Nimoy passed away, and we still can’t help but get a little teary-eyed about it. A new trailer for a documentary remembering him, directed by his own son, isn’t helping alleviate those teary eyes either.


For the Love of Spock—which raised just over $662,000 in funding on Kickstarter last year—features interviews with Adam Nimoy conducted with a whole host of Star Trek cast and crew, spanning from original series alums like William Shatner and George Takei to associates from the new movie franchise like Simon Pegg or Zach Quinto (who also narrates the documentary). It is understandably bittersweet to hear them recall their fondness for a dearly missed colleague, but this looks like it’s going to be a great tribute to Nimoy.

For the Love of Spock will debut at the Tribeca film festival this Saturday, April 16th, before being made available to stream later this year.
