Star Trek: TOS

Data Feed: Star Trek's Leonard Nimoy Is "Hidden" Somewhere In Super 8

We just heard that J.J. Abrams has announced that Leonard Nimoy is hidden somewhere within his latest film "Super 8", due out on June 10 (in the US). How Trek-tastic is that?!? Now we have yet one more reason to go see this highly anticipated film.

In an interview with Collider, Abrams stated that there are a number of hidden features in the highly secretive movie, including the Star Trek actor.

"Leonard Nimoy is in the movie somewhere if you can find him," Abrams said.

So get your popcorn and bathroom breaks out of the way before the show starts so you can keep an eye out for Spock Leonard Nimoy somewhere within the film.
