If you’re either unable or unwilling to sit in an enclosed, air-conditioned movie theater while a respiratory disease wrecks havoc on the world, we’ve got some awesome news for you. Bill and Ted Face the Music is being released in theaters and on streaming on August 28, three days earlier than announced just a couple of weeks ago. This is most excellent news.
The third Bill and Ted film was never going to be a billion-dollar blockbuster, which saved it from the long delays that films like Fast and Furious 9 and No Time to Die were facing. After all, those types of blockbusters are massive investments — and they’re meant to make much of their money in theaters before going to streaming. But luckily, Bill and Ted is a simple cult classic, and because of that, we’ll be able to watch it from the comfort of our couches.
The latest trailer for the film reveals that Bill and Ted attended couples therapy together with their wives (“a couple of couples, right?”) and that they have some kind of bizarre wedding band gig. With the help of their daughters, they do a very Bill and Ted thing and unite a band of musicians from across time, space, and genre to perform an original song that will “save reality as we know it.”
The trailer ends with Bill, Ted, and their kids dead and in hell, but in the time-traveling, happy-go-lucky world of Bill and Ted, everything is cool, even if the apocalypse is imminent. It’s honestly hard to think of a more relevant message for the current decidedly bogus moment, which means Bill and Ted can’t face the music soon enough. Luckily, we won’t have to wait much longer.
