Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure – 4K restoration details revealed

In today’s most excellent news, StudioCanal today revealed that the beloved comedy has been gloriously restored in stunning 4K! This treasured time-travelling comedy stars Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves as Bill and Ted respectively – a hopeless but lovable duo who have since become cult icons after gracing our screens for the first time more than 30 years ago. Yep, thirty years ago!

Fans can relive the original, first instalment in the hilarious comedy series when Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure releases on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD, Zavvi Exclusive Steelbook and digital download 10th August, and at special screenings – ahead of Bill & Ted Face the Music (the third and latest film to join the franchise) coming to cinemas in August.


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. 

Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure will screen as part of The Luna Drive-In Cinema from 12th July.

RUNNING TIME: 1hr 29 mins approx.
