We revisit the making of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and explore why this movie stands the test of time so well.
Keanu Reeves has made a household name for himself. In the 90’s he starred in classics such as Speed and Point Break. the film that changed Sci-Fi Action. The Matrix. Let’s get moving! He reinvented himself as John Wick for the John Wick franchise in mid-2010. He’s still kicking asses, taking names, and getting us audiences to flock to the theater and watch whatever he releases. As someone who grew-up in the 90s I would watch all of his films. Before
The matrix was released, I would have chosen two of them. The first choice was Speed.
The other was Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure…a film that has stood the test of time. Let’s guess the number, then go to Circle K to find out what year the Mongols ruled China in this episode of Revisited written, narrated, and edited by Ric Solon. In this video, we explore how a low budget comedy that sat in a drawer for a whole year, ended up grossing more than four times its original budget. It spawned a sequel, which has (to date), two sequels, a tv series, a comic-book series, video games, and more. Alex Winter and Keanu reeves were always the first choices to play Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore Logan”? Bill & Ted was almost left stranded permanently when the production company went bankrupt. Check out the video to see how we tackled all of this. Also, let us know what you think about Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure after all these years. They are about to fail history, which would mean Ted would be sent off to military school. Rufus (George Carlin) is a traveler who comes from a future in which their band is at the foundation of a perfect society. With the use of Rufus’ time machine, Bill and Ted travel to various points in history, returning with important figures to help them complete their final history presentation.
