For those needing evidence that absolutely ANY movie can get a sequel, I present to you “Bill & Ted Face the Music”. Now to be fair this is actually the second sequel to the original 1989 “Excellent Adventure”. It was followed by the pair’s “Bogus Journey” in 1991. But when rumors started swirling of a third movie some thirty years later, let’s just say the prospects weren’t what I would call most triumphant.
But yet all the rumors were indeed true and Orion Pictures has dropped their first trailer. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter reprise their roles as the air-headed but lovable best buds who must go back to their Wyld Stallyns roots to put together one more song that can save the world. Sound preposterous? Of course it does. It’s supposed to. That said, the trailer doesn’t reveal much and what’s there is more nostalgic than impressive. Hopefully they can give us another goofy, light-hearted adventure.
“Bill & Ted Face the Music” is set for release August 21st. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
