Not all hope is lost for the summer blockbuster season. Hours after Warner Brothers pushed Tenet back two weeks and bumped Wonder Woman 1984 to a fall date, United Artists has pushed up Bill & Ted Face the Music to mid-August. Originally set to hit theaters on August 21st, the Dean Parisot-helmed threequel will now launch August 14th against Gerard Butler's Greenland. Featuring a script written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are both set to reprise their roles from the cult classic features.
The first trailer of the movie was released this week, showing Reeves and Winter as Ted Logan and Bill Preston, respectively. This time around, as evident by the trailer, the two have to write a song that will save all of mankind – you know, because of funky time-traveling rules, the multiverse, and all of funky sci-fi goodness.
