WATCH: New Walmart ad gives us first look at old – and young – Alex Winter as Ted from Bill & Ted Face the Music

January 29th, 2020 by Marc Comments

With Superbowl 2020 almost upon us (this weekend), we have just got our new Walmart ad full of cool nods to classic movies and TV like Star Wars, Star Trek and even Arrival (!) but there’s one in there that really got our attention…

Yes, as you see above, the ad gives us our first look at Alex Winter as Bill S Preston Esq, one half of Wyld Stallyns or, as we know them best, Bill & Ted!

The ad has a pretty cool scene where older Bill meets younger Bill and it’s just a magical moment that has us even more excited for August when Bill & Ted Face the Music hits screens.

You can check it out below and ponder, with us, what other cool trailers we may get during the big game.

Be excellent to each other!

The stakes are higher than ever for the time-traveling exploits of William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. (Alex Winter) and Theodore “Ted” Logan (Keanu Reeves). Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle aged best friends set out on a new adventure when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it. Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends — to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe.

Bill & Ted Face the Music is directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest), from a screenplay by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey) – and produced by Scott Kroopf, Alex Lebovici, and Steve Ponce.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
