Galaxy Quest isn’t exactly a movie you’d expect to have an R rating. But somewhere out in our vast universe a very different, and very R-rated version of Galaxy Quest exists that’s filled with swearing and sex!
This incredible information comes from producer Lindsey Collins, who told Collider that Galaxy Quest’s own Sigourney Weaver let the info slip:
We had lunch with Sigourney [Weaver] who was telling us that there actually used to be an R-rated version of that movie which was awesome. It was the director’s cut and it was R-rated and everybody was swearing and there were sex scenes, and the whole thing. They didn’t know what to do with it, so they had to re-edit the whole thing and made it what it is today. We were like, ‘How do we get our hands on the R-rated version of Galaxy Quest?’ She said ‘I don’t know!’ and we were like, ‘Come on, Sigourney!’
