Watch the New Trailer for Hilarious Pioneer Trek Movie

Excel Entertainment, the distributor behind such noted films as 17 Miracles, The Work & The Glory, and The Cokeville Miracle, among many others, announced today the release of the first trailer for the new film, TREK. TREK opens in theatres on Friday, April 6, 2018.

 

TREK is directed by Alan Peterson from a screenplay written by Jon Enos and David Howard, the writer behind the hit film Galaxy Quest. Inspired by the authentic experiences of real Mormon teenagers, TREK follows Tom, a young Mormon, and his friends on their ‘Mormon cosplay’ reenactment of a pioneer handcart journey. Along the way, Tom and crew try to smuggle in unsanctioned good, battle sibling rivalry, encounter a “special ops” Young Men’s leader, and match wits with a Twinkie-loving skunk. But, when Tom and his friends encounter unexpected trouble, they face personal tests much like their pioneer ancestors.

What viewers will take away from the film, however, is up to them according to Peterson. “I can’t wait for audiences to see the entire film,” he said. “Hopefully the trailer will whet their
appetites and get them excited to see TREK next spring.”

“We couldn’t be more excited for people to see the trailer,” said Arthur VanWagenen, director of Excel Entertainment. “The trailer gives a great taste of this funny and poignant film. TREK is definitely not the typical Mormon-genre film. It tells a thoroughly modern coming-of- age tale of teenagers becoming modern day pioneers.”
