The long-awaited science-fiction comedy Unbelievable!!!!!—with a cast that includes over forty Star Trek actors—finally has a premiere date.
Unbelievable!!!!! premieres on August 1
Today, producer Angelique Fawcette announced that the online premiere screening of Unbelievable!!!!!, along with a live virtual convention, will be held on August 1.
The independent film Unbelievable!!!!! is a sci-fi parody about four astronauts, one of which is a marionette, who travel to the moon on a rescue mission only to discover a fiendish plot to invade Earth from evil alien plants. The film stars Snoop Dogg, Michael Madsen, and a vast array of former Star Trek actors including Nichelle Nichols, Chase Masterson, Garrett Wang, and Tim Russ.
Other Star Trek stars and guest stars in the film include Robert Picardo, Linda Park, Manu Intiraymi, Armin Shimerman, Vaughn Armstrong, Gary Graham, Anthony Montgomery, Marina Sirtis, Nana Visitor, Walter Koenig, Michael Dorn, Julie Warner, Dina Meyer, Olivia d’Abo, Jeffrey Combs, John Billingsley, Max Grodénchik, Casey Biggs, Gary Lockwood, Michael Forest, Jack Donner, Connor Trinneer, Dominic Keating, Brenda Bakke, Patti Yasutake, Steve Rankin, Michael Dante, Sean Kenney, BarBara Luna, Beverly Washburn, Celeste Yarnall, Bobby Clark, Jasmine Anthony, Menina Fortunato, McKenzie Westmore, Crystal Allen, and Christopher Doohan.
Originally shot in 2013, the film has since gone through reshoots and extensive post-production. An early cut of the film was shown in Hollywood in September 2016 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.
Unbelievable!!!!! also features a score by Emmy-winning composer Gerald Fried, another veteran of Star Trek: The Original Series. “We are grateful for our composer, Gerald Fried, who is now 92 years old, and for our 29-live piece orchestra who created most of the music for our soundtrack, which will be released in the coming weeks. Music is an important part of any film, and we are thrilled to announce that a song from our film titled, ‘After Today’ written and arranged by recording artist and actress, Emily L. Stanton, is now available on Spotify, and will soon be available everywhere,” said Angelique Fawcette.
