Unbelievable!!!!! Star Trek Spoof

Ready to watch one of the strangest freakin’ trailers you’re ever going to see? Archangel Films has released an official trailer for Unbelievable!!!!!, a Star Trek spoof which stars 42 Trek alums, a puppet Captain Kirk (think Thunderbirds or Team America), and Snoop Dogg.

The movie is written and directed by Steven L. Fawcette and, as you’ll see below, does not have much of a budget. But it does have a hell of a cast, and Snoop Dogg fist fighting a Captain Kirk puppet. You can read more about Unbelievable!!!!!, see the full cast lineup, and watch the trailer below.

Oh, you didn’t think Quentin Tarantino pitching an idea for a new Star Trek movie to J.J. Abrams that he might end up directing couldn’t get any stranger? Sit with me for a moment, my friends. Here, I made you some nice cocoa. Marshmallows are there on the table if you like. Careful now, it’s a bit hot.

Everything about this was unexpected, of course. But one of the things that made it especially surprising was the part about Tarantino possibly directing. Not only has he never made a big blockbuster type movie—he’s only made eight movies total with a ninth on the way, and there’s been whispers of him potentially retiring from filmmaking after his 10th—but each and every one of his films has been R-rated. Star Trek movies, as you’re likely aware, are not R-rated.

But never fear, Tarantino fans. As it turns out, even Star Trek is R-rated when it comes from Quentin. In fact, it was one of his requirements.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

A good “is it April Fools’ Day already?” story is always fun, and this one is a doozie. It’s being reported that Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill writer and director Quentin Tarantino has come up with what’s described simply as “a great idea” for a new Star Trek movie, and he has pitched that idea to producer J.J. Abrams, who directed a reboot of the Trek cinematic franchise in 2009 and a sequel in 2013.

If that’s not unbelievable enough for you, it gets even crazier. The report says that if all goes well, Tarantino could even end up directing this new Star Trek movie.

Star Trek: Discovery: Desperate Hours
Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook
By David Mack
Publisher: Gallery Books | Simon & Schuster
Release date: September 26, 2017

With the premiere of an all-new Star Trek television series this week comes its first tie-in novel, Star Trek: Discovery: Desperate Hours, which is set one year before the events of the new show. The book introduces us to Lieutenant Michael Burnham, a human woman who was raised on Vulcan, just as she’s elevated to Acting First Officer of the Starship Shenzhou, serving under Captain Philippa Georgiou.

With orders from Starfleet Command, the U.S.S. Shenzhou is en route to help Sirsa III, where a drilling operation has inadvertently awoken an ancient alien leviathan hidden deep within the planet’s seas that has attacked the Federation colony from below. To assist, the U.S.S. Enterprise, commanded by Captain Christopher Pike with Lt. Spock as Second Officer, is also on the way to the planet, where they learn that the regional government has not exactly been on the up and up with the Federation. There’s little time before the ancient vessel destroys the planet and then moves on to conquering other worlds, so the crews of both starships must work together quickly to learn enough about their new enemy to eliminate its deadly threat.

Paramount Pictures
Original release date: June 4, 1982
Fathom Events screenings: September 10 & 13, 2017

In honor of the 35th anniversary of the theatrical release of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Paramount Pictures and Fathom Events are bringing the Director’s Cut version of the film to theaters for two days only this month (9/10 & 9/13). I got the chance to see the film at my local theater at the Sunday afternoon screening, and even though I’ve seen this movie — which is one of my favorites of all time — countless times, getting to see it on the big screen again was elating.

The screenings all include a new interview with the film’s star William Shatner, who played the iconic role of James T. Kirk. In the interview, which begins about 15 minutes prior to the screening times (2pm and 7pm local time), the actor talked about making the sequel and how it reinvigorated the Star Trek franchise.
