THIS is the scene that separates Excellent Adventure from Bogus Journey:


There's no set-up or punchline. There are no laughs, but there is a poignancy and sincerity to it that probably has helped keep the movie in the public imagination for the last 3+ decades. Indeed, I freely admit that I tear up every time I watch that scene--especially in light of present times.

'Bill & Ted 3' to Hit VOD and Select Cinemas Simultaneously Amid Ongoing Pandemic


The Wyld Stallyns will travel a different route this time around.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Bill & Ted Face the Music will bypass a traditional theatrical route and debut simultaneously on premium VOD and in any cinemas willing to play the threequel on Sept. 1. Orion Pictures confirmed the shift early Thursday when releasing a second trailer in advance of a virtual Comic-Con panel set to take place this weekend.

In the fan-centric film, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter reprise their roles as Theodore "Ted" Logan and William "Bill" S. Preston, Esq. to once again parade through time in their iconic phone booth. Now adults, the pair enlist the help of their daughters in a wild adventure to save the world.

Bill & Ted 3, an acquisition title for Orion, is the latest Hollywood studio film to opt for a non-traditional release and make itself available on premium VOD or streaming amid the ongoing pandemic and theater closures across the U.S. and globe. Comparable titles include Judd Apatow's The King of Staten Island and Jon Stewart's Irresistible.

The pic — which was originally set to open in theaters on Aug. 21 — has been forced to move its opening date several times. Most recently, it was set for Aug. 28. It remains unclear when cinemas in such major markets as Los Angeles and New York City can switch on the lights by then.

While tentpoles such as Warner Bros.' Tenet or Disney's Mulan can attempt to launch on a staggered basis as cinemas reopen globally, smaller films such as Bill & Ted 3 or Staten Island are in a different position.

Insiders say both Orion and the filmmakers came to the conclusion that they had to alter their plans in order to give consumers a choice they feel comfortable with, and that a one-size-fits-all approach is no longer viable.

Internationally, where theaters have begun reopening in earnest, independent distributors in a number of markets are pursuing a theatrical release for Bill & Ted 3.

Orion, a division of MGM, is releasing the movie in the U.S. via United Artists Releasing.

Historically, most mainstream theaters won't play a movie that busts the three-month window and debuts early in the home. Drive-in theaters — a mainstay during the pandemic — and independent cinemas are an exception. Staten Island wasn't made available to theaters, while Irresistible was.

Works for me.

I think it being a low to mid budget movie allows them the ability to do this kind of release. I'll go see it in theaters and here's the new trailer.

Now just watch Bill and Ted comes out for a $20 rental and some cheapskates will think it’s too expensive.

Wanted to see this in theaters, but I'll pay for premium VOD easily.

But, that was a pretty good trailer. It looks goofy as hell, but I dig it.

Didn't really laugh too much at this new trailer but it looks really goofy and makes me want to see it even more.

So now the song that unifies the universe is by "Preston Logan" and not "Bill & Ted"? Looks like the daughters make it happen after all.

I see that the Princesses have been recast again, and apparently Bill is now married to Emma Pillsbury.

Looks great. I see myself paying $20 at least twice. Definitely on day one.

I miss movies that just make you feel good.

I love that Death is playing hopscotch by himself, and is still cheating. So happy they decided to release this on VOD. I can't wait.

I was going to wait until it hit Blu-Ray but now that they're going the VOD route, I'll jump in. $20 is less than I'd pay for a night out at the movies.

I'll be that guy.

Why would I do VOD when a 4K UHD release is likely around the corner?

In my opinion, they should just do VOD and a physical release simultaneously. I was going to see this in the theater because it is a different experience than watching it at home. Now I will just buy the 4K when it is released.

It sucks too. I really wanted to see how it faired in the regular market.

Exactly. Why pay $20 to rent when I can pay $20 to own in a couple months? The experience is the exact same.

I'm feeling tempted to just wait for the disc. Any idea how long before the disc release? Hoping I can avoid spoilers for that long.

78-minute running time. It will screen for critics the day before it's release.

Why such a short running time? Is it because of COVID forcing them to wrap things up early or something?
