Bill & Ted Have 78 Minutes To Save The Universe In Face The Music

Nearly three decades on from their Bogus Journey, this summer sees the long-awaited return of slacker duo Bill & Ted (aka Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves) – and they’re about to meet their destiny. The long-awaited threequel, from original writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, finds our heroes all grown up with daughters of their own – and while they’ve faced Genghis Khan, Death, and their own evil robot doppelgängers in the past, this time they’re tasked with their toughest test yet: having to write a song that will save the entire universe.

“We’ve gone from a homework assignment to saving all space and time. We bypassed all those possible traumas in the middle,” director Dean Parisot tells Empire in the new issue. “They have an hour and 18 minutes. So they’re in trouble. And let’s say that they have to travel all over the place to try and figure it out.” Cue the air-guitar. And hopefully some real ones too.

Bill & Ted Face The Music is due in UK cinemas on 21 August.
