Paramount+ touts itself as the home of Star Trek, with every single episode from every series, including a number of original series. And now the streaming service is finally becoming the home of (almost) every Star Trek movie too.
Star Trek movies arrive on Paramount+
Earlier we reported that Paramount+ was adding over 1,000 movies this week to the U.S. streaming service. That big chunk of feature films is now available, and included is the addition of eight additional Star Trek movies. This brings the total up to eleven Trek films.
The Star Trek film offering from Paramount+ now includes all six Original Series films and all four Next Generation movies. Today they also added the latest film in the franchise, 2016’s Star Trek Beyond. However, the first two Kelvin universe films from J.J. Abrams (2009’s Star Trek and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness) are not currently part of the streaming service.
The films can all be found under the movies tab in the A-Z listing or under the “Action” category.
The current exclusion of two Star Trek films is likely due to issues of complicated licensing rights, and so it is quite possible that all thirteen films will become available on Paramount+. The streaming service is committed to adding more films this summer, bringing the total selection to over 2,500.
Other films added today include Terminator: Dark Fate, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Skyfall, Gemini Man, Rocketman, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Birdcage, The Dictator, The School of Rock, Tropic Thunder, Dora and the Lost City of Gold, Sonic the Hedgehog, and The Addams Family. Today was also the launch of the exclusive new sci-fi action movie Infinite, starring Mark Wahlberg and Chiwetel Ejiofor and directed by Antoine Fuqua.
There is more original television content coming this summer including season two of the animated comedy Star Trek: Lower Decks on August 12th. Also arriving this summer: iCarly, (June 17), Evil (June 20), RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars (June 24), RuPaul’s Drag Race Untucked! (June 24), The Good Fight (June 24), Behind the Music (July 29), and more.
The new $4.99 Essential plan with limited advertising also launched this week. Later this month, Paramount+ will also roll out a new feature called “My List” that will allow subscribers to save shows and movies to watch at a later date, available with both Essential and Premium plans.
