Here's the film's official description:
"Unbelievable!!!!!" is a Sci-Fi Parody Adventure. The movie follows the exploits of four astronauts (one of which is an anima-tronic 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.
Unbelievable!!!!! comes from the husband and wife filmmaking team of Steven L. Fawcette and Angelique Fawcette of Archangel films. Steven acts as writer, director, and excutive producer while Angelique acts and produces.
The film will also feature a score by veteran Star Trek composer Gerald Fried.0comments
Star Trek parodies seem to be in vogue at the moment. In addition to Unbelievable!!!!!, Fox's The Orville takes a light-hearted approach to the Star Trek model and a Galaxy Quest television series in the works at Amazon.
Unbelievable!!!!! is expected to debut in early 2018.
