Strange things are afoot in San Dimas once again when Bill and Ted Face the Music!

Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter return as Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan or Wyld Stallyns in the third installment “Face the Music”. Its been nearly 3 decades since we saw Bill and Ted time traveling with Death (Sadler) in “Bogus Journey” and they are still struggling to write “the song” that will unite the world. Wyld Stallyns have gone from stadiums shows to Tuesday Taco nights and even played Bill’s brother Deacon’s wedding to Missy (Amy Stoch)! Yes, Missy made her way through Bills dad, Ted’s dad and finally Deacon (Beck Bennett) which tangled both family trees like a grape vine!!! Chief Logan (Hal Landon Jr.) still thinks Ted and his bandmate Bill are nuts and didn’t travel through time, go to hell or need to write a song to save the world! Bill and Ted, now married to the princess’ (Erinn Hayes, Jayma Mays), have daughters that are carbon copies of their fathers and into music and all things Wyld Stallyns, but are faced with the reality that they may never write the song and have to get real jobs.

Vin Diesel goes from soldier to weapon in the latest comic book adaptation “BLOODSHOT”.

Ray Garrison was a soldier that always seemed to come back from the most difficult missions, sometimes wounded but always comes back to his wife Gina (Talulah Riley). The latest mission was to rescue a hostage from Taliban terrorists. Garrison confronts the gunman and with a simple deception he is able to shoot the bad guy in the head and save the hostage. Ray takes Gina to the Amalfi coast on leave but his vacation is cut short when soldiers try to drug him only to have Garrison beat them down. As he ran out of the hotel to find his wife, he bumps into a man who turns out to be the leader of the troops trying to capture Ray.

Martin Axe (Toby Kebbell) asks Garrison how he got the location of the hostage only to have Ray explain he goes where he is sent and had no idea who found the location. Ax dancing to the song “Psycho Killer” by the Talking Heads walks over and kills Gina infuriating Ray. Garrison tells Ax that he will find him and he will kill him.
