TRAILER TIME: Bill and Ted Face the Music Teaser
I know that I'm supposed to say that this is just playing on my Gen X nostalgia and that this is a cyncial reboot for easy cash.
And while the first film is very much of its time, I still remember that Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey is a terrible, terrible film.
But I when I saw this teaser, I couldn't help myself... I started giggling.
Bill and Ted are two good-natured dummies who bring people together with their (sort of) musical talent, but mostly by their open and good nature. And while the years are evident on Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves, I still bought them as the lovable doofuses from San Dimas. I also think its a testament to Reeves that looking at him I see none of his now iconic John Wick.
I also love that silly Death has joined them again.
This movie could be more Bogus Journey than Excellent Adventure, but I'll be there opening night.
