Default Paramount Pulls Huge Surprise, Shows "Star Trek" in place of Wrath of Khan in Austin!

From TrekMovie.com: http://trekmovie.com/2009/04/06/aust...ar-trek-movie/

According to our man on the scene, the evening started off normally at the Fantastic Fest Star Trek event at the Alamo Draughthouse Theater in Austin, Texas on Monday night. Star Trek filmmakers Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof kicked things off by telling the crowd of around 200, that they would be seeing the Star Trek preview after Wrath of Khan. Two minutes in to the showing of TWOK, the film appeared to have ‘melted’ and the guys came back out on the stage and appeared to be stalling for time while the film was fixed…and then, wearing a ball cap, Leonard Nimoy came out in front of the audience holding a film can. Nimoy noted to the crowd that it just didn’t seem fair that people in Australia were the fist to see the film and asked them "wouldn’t you rather see the new movie?" And apparently the crowd went wild. After that they showed the entire new Star Trek movie. Nimoy stayed for the entire event as did Orci, Kurtzman and Lindelof.
According to a friend who called in to TrekMovie after the event, the audience reaction was positive. There were "genuine laughs" at the jokes and "quiet moments" with the serious character stuff. And apparently the crowd applauded at the introduction to each character.
TrekMovie will update this article with images from the event, but it just ended a few mimutes ago. Here is a picture sent to TwitPic by Neil Miller of FilmSchoolRejects.com.

My good sir, that is probably the biggest slap to the face anyone could get today.

Sounds good. Most will like it, some will not. This board is going to be pumping over the next few weeks with lots of debate.
