*** My review is up now! ***
I’m going to try really hard not to mention the word “whoa” in the title or article as it’s such a cliché. Oh.
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure has been restored in glorious 4K – and it’s available from 10 August in 4K Ultra HD, steelbook, Blu-ray™, DVD and digital download. There are also screenings at Luna drive-in cinema events from 12 July.
Watch the new trailer below, and check out the special features (including an air guitar tutorial!) and images from the film.
Here’s the extremely long synopsis:
Strange things are afoot at the Circle K in San Dimas… Ted “Theodore” Logan (Keanu Reeves) and Bill S. Preston, Esquire (Alex Winter), are in danger of flunking school most heinously if they fail their history exam, and if they do they’ll have to break up their totally bodacious band, WYLD STALLYNS. No way!
They meet Rufus (George Carlin) – an awesome dude in a phone booth that can travel through time, who informs them that the fate of the excellent future he comes from is in their hands and in the songs they will write together, so brace yourself amigos for a most unusual day! Bill & Ted crash from ancient Greece to the Wild West, from 19th century Europe to the distant future, meeting famous figures and medieval babes along the way.
The boys bag a bevy of historical heavyweights from each stop to take back for their presentation, but will they make it back in time to save not only their grades, but the fate of the world? History’s about to be rewritten by two guys who can’t even spell.
