The third installment of Bill and Ted's on-going adventures continues on August 28 when it comes to theaters and video on demand at the same time. The film hedges its bets and will be available at the scattered open theaters around the U.S., but because of the shutdowns, it will also grace online video platforms at the same time.

Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are both reprising their iconic roles as Bill and Ted as they attempt to write a hit song to save the world in the new movie. While it's a bold move to return to the original movies 29 years later, the early reviews said it was an excellent ride and a worthy continuation.

The movie is directed by Dean Parisot and also features actors Kristen Schaal, Samara Weaving, and Brigette Lundy-Paine.

Originally the film was supposed to open in the U.S. and the U.K. on the same date, but with the volatile schedule, it will first be released only in America.
