In light of the Boston Marathon bombings, will Harrison's terrorist actions/bombings in the movie be too much to stomach?
Are they running a marathon in 23rd century alternate universe London before Cumberbatch and his brother set off the bombs? Otherwise, I'm not seeing much of a parallel other than both involving terrorism (in which case we might as well delay the Blu-Ray release of the latest Die Hard). Most people (and especially those not directly affected) aren't as sensitive to this kind of stuff as the media and the people making the movies or TV shows worry that they are. They can distinguish between reality and fiction.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
