‘Bill & Ted Face the Music’ will open Sept. 1 in theaters and on demand

“Bill & Ted Face the Music” will open Sept. 1 in theaters and on demand, Orion Pictures announced today.

The third chapter in the time-travel comedy franchise starring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will be the highest-profile movie to be available for home viewing the same day it opens in theaters since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The animated movie “Trolls World Tour” and Jon Stewart’s political comedy “Irresistible” also broke the “distribution window,” the period of time when movies play exclusively in theaters before becoming available on cable, streaming services or Blu-ray and DVD.

While some movie theaters, including several in San Antonio, have reopened at limited capacity, many remain closed as the virus that causes COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the country. Chains such as AMC Theatres and Regal Cinemas are still closed.

Hollywood studios also continue to push back the release dates of potential blockbusters such as “Tenet” and live-action “Mulan” in hopes that audiences will be able to see them in theaters.

In “Face the Music,” Bill and Ted, now middle-aged dads of teenage daughters, are called upon to write a song to save the world. True to form, instead of doing the job, they hatch a plan to travel to the future and steel the already-written song from their future selves.

It’s the follow-up to the 1989 hit “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” in which teenage Bill and Ted travel back in time so they can pass their history class, keep their band together and help shape a more benevolent future; and the 1991 follow-up “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey,” in which they defeat death.
