It took more than a few supernatural forces to bring Bill and Ted back to our screens. Nearly 30 years after Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, the third Bill and Ted film will reunite Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter as everyone’s favorite bodacious dudes. In Bill & Ted Face the Music, Winter’s Bill and Reeves’ Ted are middle-aged dads who must save reality with the help of their lookalike daughters (Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine, respectively).
Reeves, Winter, Weaving, Lundy-Paine, and Death himself William Sadler united with director Dean Parisot alongside writers Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson for a truly excellent virtual Comic-Con panel moderated by filmmaker and fan Kevin Smith to discuss how Bill & Ted Face the Music came to be, and what it was like for Weaving to act opposite the man who killed her uncle (Hugo Weaving, in the Matrix movies).

The Pitch: When a preacher-turned-serial killer learns that his cellmate hid $10,000 on his property before he was arrested and executed, the killer decides to visit the man’s property, seduce his widow, and find the cash.
Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: Before he played the deranged Max Cady in Cape Fear, film noir veteran Robert Mitchum starred in one of the most enduring, quietly terrifying movies of his lengthy career.
