Bill & Ted Face the Music
With the cast of Anthony Carrigan as the villain in the third “Bill and Ted” film, co-screenwriter Ed Solomon couldn’t contain his excitement and tweeted out a photo of himself and writing partner Chris Matheson – both of whom have been responsible for all three films – along with the film’s stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, trapped in a phone booth, in an image familiar to ‘Excellent Adventure’ fans. The movie, it seems, is finally real. [Source: Twitter]

Just in time for the summer solstice, A24 has released a special promo trailer for its upcoming horror film “Midsommar” which offers even more of a creepy vibe than the previous ones. “Hereditary” helmer Ari Aster directs the story about a couple’s vacation to a Swedish village which takes a sinister turn when the insular townspeople invite them into a series of rituals that render their pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving. The film opens everywhere July 3rd.
