Almost 30 years after Bill and Ted's last time-traveling adventure, the duo will need to save the universe by composing a song in 78 minutes in Bill & Ted Face the Music. The third entry in the buddy comedy series starring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter arrives on streaming services as a digital rental on August 28. It's available to pre-order now at FandangoNow, Amazon Prime Video, and Vudu. If you plan on watching Bill & Ted Face the Music at release, you'll want to order from FandangoNow. Not only is FandangoNow charging $5 less than other retailers, but you can also get a nice bonus for ordering early. FandangoNow is running a promotion that gets you 50% off a rental or purchase of more than 100 other movies with popular duos, including the first two Bill & Ted movies, Superbad, Hot Fuzz, Booksmart, and animated pictures such as Toy Story 4 and Up. The promo code will be delivered to your email after you pre-order, and you'll have to use it by September 11.
FandangoNow's pre-orders for any format--including 4K UHD--are $20, while Amazon Prime Video and Vudu are charging $25, which is quite pricey for a digital rental. Pre-ordering at FandangoNow will net you some bonus content, including a behind-the-scenes video, a discussion of the origins of the franchise, and Death showing off his house. Bill & Ted Face the Music isn't available to purchase just yet, as it's being treated like a theatrical release at home, much like Trolls World Tour, The King of Staten Island, and Mulan. You'll have 30 days to start watching your rental, but once you start, your rental expires in 48 hours.

With the coronavirus pandemic still presenting serious issues in the US, movie releases have yet to seriously return--with the exception of Chistopher Nolan's Tenet, which apparently needs a theatrical release for some reason. While some theaters are open in the US, they have largely been showing older movies to try to get people back in theaters. Bill & Ted Face the Music skipping a theatrical release altogether means that you can watch Keanu Reeves' and Alex Winter's new and almost assuredly wacky mission from the comfort of your own couch.
