Soon to be released Sci-Fi parody film Unbelievable!! the Movie, crammed full of ex Star Trek actors including what looks to be a 2 foot tall puppet of James T Kirk!
I will have to admit that when I first saw the video below I believed it to be one of those comedy ‘fake’ trailers that some how seem to attract well-known actors to appear in them, that then spread over the internet like a wild-fire that ultimately have no other intention except to raise a laugh. (Will Farrell I am looking at you). How wrong could I have been.
Unbelievable!!! the Movie is a real thing, is actually happening and looks well… Unbelievable. Before I go into any more detail, I think it’s best that you see the trailer.
So as you can see from the above trailer the films looks insane and hilarious in equal measures but you could also forgive me for thinking that the trailer was for a fake film, however there is a synopsis and poster:
"Unbelievable!!!!! is a Sci-Fi Parody Adventure. The movie follows the exploits of four astronauts (one of which is an animatronic marionette which resembles Captain Kirk from the 1960’s TV show Star Trek) who travel to the Moon on a rescue mission to determine the fate of two NASA comrades who have not been heard from in several days. The individuals they find at the Lunar Base are not whom they appear to be and, through acts of trickery and deception, nearly succeed in killing our heroes. The four return to find that everyone on the planet has been transformed into a variant life-form. Aliens from Mars have conquered Earth and now seek to destroy the last remnants of humanity. The astronauts fight back and soon discover how to rid themselves of the alien threat."
What is more amazing is the film has 40, yes 40 actors who have appeared in the Star Trek franchise as well as hiring various musicians who have scored some of our favourite Star Trek moments from the past 50 Years.
"We have cast 40 previous iconic Star Trek actors in this film. We have also hired Gerald Fried, an Emmy-Award winning composer, to score our film. Gerald was a composer for the original Star Trek and has written some of its most iconic musical themes including Amok Time’s Fight Music. Fried won his Emmy for his Composition work on the 1970’s TV Series Roots. Additionally we hired Tommy Morgan as our Lead Bass Harmonia player who also worked on the original Star Trek series, Spectre of the Gun. Also within our orchestra is multi Grammy and Academy Award winner Dave Grusin as our Pianist. Dave is known for his work on The Graduate, On Golden Pond and Tootsie. We produced this film to include many of our favorite Star Trek stars from the past in a light-hearted parody-adventure, look forward to the fun with many of your favorite actors, a few plants….and a few dogs."
And here are just some of those Star Trek stars:
Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, BarBara Luna, Gary Lockwood, Michael Forest, Celeste Yarnall, Beverly Washburn, Jack Donner, Sean Kenney, Michael Dante, Michael Dorn, Robert Picardo, Tim Russ, Manu Intiraymi, Garrett Wang, Nana Visitor, Chase Masterson, Linda Park, Connor Trinneer and Anthony Montgomery
Having read more and more on this project I have to say that I am very much looking forward to watching this melting pot of craziness that has been fulled by the makers obvious love for all things Star Trek.
