The First Trailer for Leonard Nimoy Doc For the Love of Spock Would Make Even a Vulcan Cry

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

If you’re half-Vulcan, half-human, go ahead and grab a box of tissues before you hit play. Because honestly, if you still miss the dearly departed Leonard Nimoy, this will tug at your heartstrings like they were a Vulcan lute.

The first teaser for Adam Nimoy’s documentary about his father—and specifically the legacy he created playing Spock in Star Trek—already had our lips quivering, but this full trailer has us verklempt. It’s alright until you start getting to the moment Nimoy asks the cast and crew of Star Trek from the recent movies (and a few of his father’s former colleagues) to describe his dad in a single word, at which point tears are the only logical response


For the Love of Spock will be available to stream online from September 9th.
