Alex Winter makes his first appearance as Old Bill from Bill & Ted Face the Music in a new Walmart Super Bowl ad.
Early looks at Bill & Ted Face the Music have featured the middle-aged versions of Winter and Reeves’ characters along with their young daughters, and have also teased the return of William Sadler as Death (who of course remains Bill and Ted’s slave forever after they defeated him). Now, fans can get their first look at Winter’s Old Bill in action thanks to a new Walmart Super Bowl ad that is absolutely stuffed to the gills with figures from pop culture of the ’80s and ’90s. See the clip in the space below:
The movie is currently on track for a release date this summer, set to premiere in theaters on August 21st. The movie will reportedly see the titular heroes squandering their potential, but forced back into action with the expectation that their music will save the universe.
Check out the synopsis for the movie below:
“Following 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the stakes are higher than ever for William Bill S. Preston Esq. (Winter) and Theodore Ted Logan (Reeves). Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure, when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it and bring harmony to the universe. Along the way, they will be helped by their families, old friends and a few music legends.”
Directed by Dean Parisot and written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, Bill & Ted Face The Music stars Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, Anthony Carrigan, Kid Cudi, Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving. The film arrives in theaters on Aug. 21, 2020.
