* Abrams, despite his over-protectiveness before his movies' releases, has offered sneak peaks of his movies to terminally ill fans before they died:
** Upon hearing of a ''Star Trek'' fan was on his deathbed, and wanted to see ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' before he died...JJ promptly arranged to have the fan see the film--some time before the official release. What a guy!
** And he pulled the ''exact same thing'' again with a dying Star Wars fan who feared he wouldn't live to the official release date of ''Film/TheForceAwakens''.
