The Wyld Stallyns will travel a different route this time around. Due to the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, Bill & Ted Face the Music will bypass a traditional theatrical route to debut simultaneously on premium VOD and in any cinemas willing to play the threequel 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 Ted "Theodore" Logan and 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 nontraditional 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 Aug. 21 — has been forced to move its opening date several times. Most recently, it was set for Aug. 28. It remains unclear whether cinemas in such major markets as Los Angeles and New York City can switch on the lights by then.
