Sequels and remakes and reboots and reimaginings never stop, and often they’re just retreads and boring new versions of old movies and stories we love. Sometimes, though, every once in awhile, something unexpected arises…
Like a third Bill and Ted’s movie. That takes place now. And features the two lovable moron wanna-be universe-saving musicians as dads grappling with midlife crises after their so-called destinies failed to come to fruition.
Bill and Ted Face the Music is set to come out this August – at least it was, before the pandemic hit, so as of now it’s slated for theaters and OnDemand on September 1st. And we have a full trailer to prove it. And this thing looks wacky!
The modern-day versions of Bill S. Preston, Esquire and Ted “Theodore” Logan, as played by Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves, are the same, but different. They’re still buds, but now they’re in their forties, with daughters, and dashed dreams. The first trailer reminded us to be excellent to each other. The new trailer sees them trying to recapture their mojo and write the song that will save the universe, with a little help from some old friends.
The synopsis: The stakes are higher than ever for the time-traveling exploits of the now middle-aged best friends as they set out on a new adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe, helped by their daughters (played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine), a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends.
