Follow this link to a video of Leonard Nimoy addressing a group of fans in Austin TX.. The fans were gathered to watch "The Wrath of Khan" when the film "broke down". Nimoy stepped to the stage, vamped for a bit, and then anounced that he thought it was unfair that Australia should be the place where the new "trek" movie premiered. With that, he produced a copy of the new film.
It's not quite what we were discussing on Saturday about making copies of new movies available before hand, but it is a step towards it.
