Bill & Ted Face The Music Gets New Release Date
The long-awaited third instalment of the Bill & Ted franchise has been pushed back by two weeks.
Bill & Ted Face The Music was originally scheduled for cinematic release on August 12, but has been delayed until August 28. Many of this year’s movies have been rescheduled due to COVID-19 including F9, A Quiet Place Part II, The Eternals, Godzilla Vs Kong Wonder Woman 1984.
But the pandemic isn’t the only reason for Bill & Ted’s date change. The time-travelling duo were set to return to screens on the same date as Christopher Nolan’s upcoming spy epic Tenet, which is tipped to be the biggest movie of the summer. As such, going up against Tenet in such trying times just doesn’t make sense, hence the move.
Earlier this month, the first official trailer dropped for Bill & Ted Face The Music, which shows our plucky heroes fighting to to unite the world with their music.
“The stakes are higher than ever for the time-traveling exploits of William ‘Bill’ S. Preston Esq. (Alex Winter) and Theodore ‘Ted’ Logan (Keanu Reeves),” reads the movie’s official synopsis. “The now middle aged best friends set out on a new adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe, with the helped by their daughters (played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine), a new batch of historical figures and a few music legends.
“The film also stars Kid Cudi, Kristen Schaal, Anthony Carrigan, Erinn Hayes, Jayma Mays, Jillian Bell, Holland Taylor, Beck Bennett, William Sadler, Hal Landon Jr. and Amy Stoch.”
